It immerses you in a world of dance practices, artists and styles which empower you to become creative, critical and articulate within and beyond choreographic practice.Studio experience and performance making are at the heart of our newly validated Dance degree. It’s a unique three-year course with a conservatoire-style approach to dance focusing on practical development. With two daily training classes alongside choreographic workshops, there is plenty of time to build on your strength, aptitude and stamina in the studio.Each semester, you are able to focus on a particular way of working through single projects. Performance projects are led by established artists and offer opportunities for you to work in a variety of professional settings including theatre and dance venues, festivals, and education and health contexts. Contextual work on each project supports you in building knowledge and understanding. All theory is delivered in conjunction with the practical work you are doing in the studio.The new Dance course is designed with interconnected strands. It aims to provide you with an experience similar to that of working in the industry where dance practitioners are often called upon to connect the activities of performing, creating, organising, designing, evaluating and facilitating within each project they undertake.We have close links with regional and national theatres and dance organisations, companies and artists who provide the inside knowledge you need to get ahead in your career. There are opportunities to engage with talented professional dance artists, choreographers, facilitators and managers through work placements in local theatres and community projects and through your own ground-breaking performances hosted on campus. You can study abroad for a semester or visit and take classes at one of our American University partners.Your achievement is measured through interrelated assignment tasks, which allow you to cohere and synthesise skills, knowledge and understanding.The assignments feature various modes of assessment including performance, choreography, contextual discussion through presentation alongside journals, planning, self-reflection and annotated bibliography in Year 1.In Year 2 you will work on a reflective blog, a professional pitch, a digital artefact, a visual essay, a podcast and project documentation. Assessment continues in your final year through facilitation and research documentation, an individual professional report, debate and presentation.On graduation you will be able to perform professional dance pieces from national and international choreographers and create your own work and facilitate dance in relevant contexts including schools and health settings.In addition, you will display key skills for the workplace in your ability to communicate through a range of channels including oral, written, performance modes and to do this critically, analytically and creatively, with confidence.
