Course detail

Performance is at the heart of the course, so you will work with an ensemble and as a soloist to devise and realise original and devised routines, and perform to the dance-lovers in the public.

In recent years, dance students at UCW have performed in professional venues including Loco Klub in Bristol and in our spectacular end of year show in Weston’s Playhouse Theatre.

The course is taught by still-practising dance and performing arts professionals, and you will also learn from expert guest lecturers who will help you develop your online portfolio and encourage you to make a professional network within the dance industry.

You will also gain an understanding of performance physicality and explore the key historical and stylistic developments, practitioners and productions in dance and undertake projects in areas of academic and professional interest.

The programme’s international emphasis extends beyond the syllabus, with students on this course having recently had the opportunity to visit Los Angeles at an additional expense.

The UCW Academy of Performing Arts has also developed a partnership with the Studio School in LA, with students from both institutions collaborating to produce a music video.

The course is taught in the recently-renovated rehearsal spaces and dance studios in the UCW Academy of Performing Arts at our Knightstone Campus. You’ll also attend lectures in the brand new learning and teaching facilities in the University Centre of our Winter Gardens building, which is also in the centre of Weston.

Please contact the course leader Rachel Hickie or UCW’s HEART team if you have any questions. It would also be great to meet you and show you around at our next Open Day.
