Course summary

This programme is aimed at students who have an interest in both dance and sports science and draws on the physiological, biomechanical and psychological characteristics inherent in dance training and exercise as well as the application of science to the elite dance performer. Applications of Psychology in Dance will enable you to start investigate elements of the psychology of human behaviour in exercise and performance. Fundamental to all of this, is the physiological understanding in relation to the moving body and the dance artist. To do this, it is essential to examine the structures and functions of the skeletal, neuromuscular, respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrine, digestive and thermoregulatory systems. Our course includes a mix of assessments, so that you may develop a wide range of transferable skills.

Daily practical classes enable you to engage in healthy, safe dance practice, through floor, ballet barre, centre work, traveling exercises and improvisational exercises, designed to develop technique skills needed for university dance study. The Learning and teaching in dance technique allows you to develop movement memory through repetition of set sequences, timing and musicality, use of space, and experiential learning through improvisational techniques.
