Welcome to Dance at the Arts University Bournemouth. AUB hopes you will enjoy your
time here and that you will make the most of the opportunities you will encounter
being part of a vibrant, innovative performing and collaborative arts community.
They believe in Dance as a form of artistic expression that transcends cultural
boundaries while contributing to the cultural landscape; that invites an audience to
experience a language that is more universal than spoken language and that
engages and excites them.

BA (Hons) Dance has been developed as a response to the changing landscape of
the dance and arts ecology. As such it recognises the diversity and interdisciplinary
nature of contemporary performance and stresses the need to produce versatile,
open-minded and curious graduates who can gain employment in a variety of areas.
The ability to generate, present and sustain one’s own work is crucial to a career in
dance and the course offers concrete opportunities to explore this aspect of your
future profession. We believe in fostering creativity and that the ability to create one’s
own opportunities is as important as the ability to work effectively and professionally.
In the making of original work, you will consider how form, style and structure can
affect content, meaning and audience engagement in a performance event. You will
consider the motives for the creation of material: social, political, educational and
commercial, whilst developing key professional skills required for the workplace, such
as selecting work to be developed, project management and effective marketing, as
well as learning about the structures and policies of dance organisations in the UK,
professional standards and codes of conduct.
