Course summary

BA Dance is a highly practical course. Designed to prepare students for careers as dance artists, this programme is delivered by some of Wales’ leading contemporary dance artists and practitioners.

Students will experience the latest approaches to dance training in contemporary dance and ballet. They will explore creative and choreographic skills, perform in works by leading artists, develop community-based practice and collaborate with students from other disciplines. Student are prepared to become fully rounded, collaborative artists and practitioners upon graduation.

The specialist skills taught will be underpinned by acquired knowledge of, and experience in, entrepreneurship and digital know-how. Developing this range of skills prepares students to enjoy life-long and varied careers in performance, choreography, community practice and/or dance pedagogy.

Course Overview

The first year of the BA Dance programme concentrates on building foundations in the latest approaches to contemporary and ballet training and movement skills development. Students will experience highly demanding performance opportunities and work with professional choreographers from the outset.

During the second year, students further develop their skills and experience in performance, choreography and collaborative practices. They also gain, in a range of inclusive settings, practical experience through the development of their teaching practice and workshop leading competence.

Students in their final year are supported to cultivate their own expertise as performers, choreographers and collaborative professional artists and practitioners, so that they are ready for employment as dancers, choreographers or community practitioners when they leave.
