Dance BA(Hons): Course features

What this course offers you

Diversity is at the heart of Kingston University's Dance BA(Hons). Our students are from a diverse range of backgrounds and come with a variety of dance experiences. We cater for a wide range of practical backgrounds, so not having a classical or contemporary background is not a problem.

We study a diverse range of styles including street dances (eg hip hop, krump, house, popping, locking), Odissi, pan-African and African diasporic dances, popular dances (eg salsa, lindyhop, ragtime, tap, ballroom, commercial, Jamaican dancehall, burlesque) and Western theatrical dance styles (eg classical ballet, Cunningham).

The course capitalises on London's multicultural dance scene: Kingston is just 30 minutes from central London, home to major international centres such as the South Bank Centre, Sadler's Wells, the Barbican and West End theatres.

The course develops your understanding of theory through dance practice.We use a range of teaching methods such as practical workshops, lectures, independent research and seminars.

Assessment methods include:

  • performances;
  • presentations;
  • essays; and
  • logs and portfolios.

Our supportive staff help you develop to your full potential.

Optional modules in the second and third year allow you to follow your own interests and career goals.

The course's broad focus means that graduates might choose to go into:

  • community dance;
  • dance management;
  • dance performance; or
  • further professional training or academic study.

All employers will value the skills developed by this type of study, which include:

  • creativity and self-expression;
  • analysis and critical thinking;
  • communication;
  • research;
  • self-discipline; and
  • organisation.
