Overview

Our Contemporary Dance Theatre BA will enable you to creatively explore ways of integrating contemporary dance and theatre. The course will give you exciting opportunities to develop your dance, performance and acting skills. You’ll also extend your skill base to include the emerging forms of contemporary circus and aerial performance. The focus is on supporting your development as a creative practitioner, which will prepare you for a career in a range of performance contexts.

The collaborative nature of the course will also facilitate you in forming your own company. You’ll have the opportunity to collaborate with musicians, playwrights and actors in the creation of your work. You will be working with professional theatre-makers throughout the course, and will have a number of opportunities to perform publicly. You’ll also be able to develop your skills as a future dance theatre workshop leader and network with various dance and theatre organisations.

Career opportunities

BA Contemporary Dance Theatre will prepare you for a range of possible careers, including working as a professional performer. Alongside the creative content, the course equips you with the creative and entrepreneurial skills and knowledge to set up as an independent or freelance practitioner. Through working collaboratively across a range of live performance courses, the department facilitates opportunities for students across subjects to work in small groups of writers, performers, directors and technical theatre specialists, facilitating the development of new performance companies. The course also prepares you for leading or tutoring workshops and performances, so future career possibilities include working in performing arts organisations for young people, or the community (such as DanceFest) or to go into teaching. The flexible skills and abilities (such as confidence, creativity, and communication) gained through the very nature of the work greatly enhances your broader employability, and data for 2015/16 graduates indicated that 90% of graduates were in employment 6 months after graduating from courses in the Theatre & Performance Department.
