Overview

The Dance curriculum enables you to become an independent learner through the experience of active participation throughout degree-level study.

As a student, you will build your subject knowledge and practical experience, through core and optional teaching modes appropriate to the breadth of the curriculum. Your learning encompasses development of dance knowledge and skills intrinsic to dance practice. Learning is supported by theoretical inquiry and debate, to provide you with the ability to contextualise your learning within academic frameworks.

Programme structure

Throughout your degree, modules are delivered in a variety of ways including:

Standard module: A single module scheduled over one semester (15 credits normally) examples Popular Dance and Introduction to Improvisation and Composition.

Double module: A double module is spread over two semesters (30 credits normally) examples: Dance Portfolio and Dance Placement.

Long thin module: A standard module can be spread over two semesters (15 credits normally) example: Dance Technique.

Summer module: Summer study, condensed into a two week period (15 credits normally) example: Interdisciplinary Arts Project and Performance and Place.

Module strand (Level 6): This is a double module, either 2 x 15 credits or 30 credits, designed to allow for in depth subject study. For example: Dance Movement Psychotherapy 1, Dance Movement Psychotherapy 2, Teaching Dance Technique, Teaching Dance and Creative Practice.

Theory modules allow you to begin to develop research skills necessary for degree study. Teaching is delivered through illustrated lectures and small group seminars, linking dance theory to practice.

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.

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. To extend practice, you will be involved in the ongoing rehearsal and choreography of peers.
