UK Dance Courses

Introduction to Dance

Studying a Dance degree at a UK university will equip you with the transferable skills needed to be a success across the many disciplines of this unique art form. Classes will combine theory and practice and strong links with industry ensure almost all classes are taught by professionals.

Critical, theoretical and performance skills in all areas will be developed, alongside teamwork, creativity and discipline. Dance and drama modules at most UK universities or conservatoires will include history, technique, choreography, appreciation, movement studies, concepts and cultures, play staging, technique and technical theatre.

Graduate Dance Careers and Salary

The common path many Dance performers move towards following graduation is auditioning for roles on stage, but there are a wide variety of other positions performers can move into, including choreography, direction and project management. Dance teaching is also another popular path and joint honours degrees are available for students who wish to pursue this.
