Course description

Do you have a passion for dance and want to study in a non-competitive environment? This course offers a unique approach to dance training; embedding four intertwining strands of study that focus on you receiving a fully-rounded education to equip you to work as a Professional Dance Artist. The course specialises in Dance in Education and a large proportion of your studies will be spent on live teaching projects, delivering dance in primary and secondary schools, shadowing community dance practitioners and setting up your own community based dance projects. You will also train in contemporary dance technique alongside an in-depth exploration into creative practice, making your own work as well as performing for professional choreographers. All our work here is underpinned by a somatic movement approach which gives you a strong foundation in bodily awareness and reflective practice to help you find the kind of dance artist you want to be.

Modules

Year 1: Modern dance (single); technique and improvisation (single); post-modern dance and current trends (single); technique and choreography (single); somatic movement education (double year long). Year 2: Technique and choreography 2 (single); dance cultures (single); dance, physical performance and technique (single); dance in education (double year long); somatic movement education 2 (single year long). Year 3: Technique and performance (single); socio-therapeutic dance forms (single); choreography (single); teaching practice in different contexts (double year long); independent project (single).

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Many dance graduates from 2012 went straight into dance or choreography jobs, and there are good employment rates overall. Work in education, in schools and colleges, or as freelance dance teachers, are also common. Be aware that freelancing and self-employment is common, as are what is termed 'portfolio careers' – having several part-time jobs or commissions at once, and networking can be very important for dance students to find their first job, so be prepared to work on your people skills.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Only a small number of students study this subject, so there isn't a lot of information available on what graduates do when they finish - bear that in mind when you look at any stats. Graduates from these courses tend to go into teaching, management, or education support, or go into further study. It's also a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what you might expect from the course and what previous graduates did.
