Your comprehensive study of dance practice will include dance technique, performance and choreography. Contemporary dance is at the core of our technique teaching, and is centred on Cohan method (Graham based), Release, Humphrey based and Cunningham based training, supplemented by classes in ballet. A range of optional classes – jazz dance, repertoire, and improvisation – contribute vitally to the development of technique and performance skills.

The theory based modules are designed to develop your academic and analytical skills alongside performance and creative components. A range of studies, including anatomy, dance history, science of movement, philosophy, and critical studies, will help develop your critical and independent thinking. Independent research projects in the final year will further stimulate your knowledge and interest, providing you with a solid academic foundation if you wish to further your studies by enrolling in one of our postgraduate degrees.

Choreography, practice and performance

Choreography plays a fundamental part in years 1 and 2. As well as developing your creativity, choreography assessments provide students with regular performance opportunities. Daily practical classes in contemporary dance will enable you to develop and hone your technical skills and artistic understanding with a view to dance performance. Performance work is an important part of the curriculum; we boast a brand new, purpose built dance theatre, the Grove, which we use for our first and second year dance student shows. Our final, third year performance takes place in the Arts Depot, a thriving theatre in north London


Theory classes play a key role in enhancing students' study and practice by helping them gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the contexts within which dance is embedded. We pride ourselves on combining practical and theoretical approaches to offer a thorough, well rounded contemporary dance foundation. Although there is more contact time devoted to practical classes than to theory, students are expected to support this with independent study and research. Theory and practice are weighted as equally important when it comes to assessment.
