The BA (Hons) Professional Dance and Musical Theatre is a high-calibre vocational programme which will equip you for a career in the professional entertainment industry. The three-year programme offers intensive specialist training in dance, singing and acting, aiming to provide you with excellent employment skills. Upon graduation, employment may include musicals (West End and touring), dance companies, television, theatre and education.

After the first year you undertake your studies within a more focused specialist track: triple threat training, singer/acting focus or a more dance-based track. This allows you to choose a direction of study in the second and third year that is in line with your skills, abilities and likely destination.

This BA (Hons) Professional Dance and Musical Theatre is validated by the University of Birmingham.

As well as receiving outstanding training in many disciplines of dance and musical theatre, students will develop many other skills which will be invaluable for their future careers. They will develop resilience, communication skills, presentation skills, confidence, artistry, determination, creativity, choreography, leadership and team-working skills. Students will also benefit from an incredible proximity to professional performers and develop an intrinsic ability to network and build their brand.

We work closely with Link talent who can support and help our graduates make the transition from a learning to a working environment.
