Professional Development

We offer a variety of flexible dance training and study opportunities to suit individual needs and experience.

The programmes are based on a professional development model, catering for different levels
 of expertise and experience, and embracing students from a diversity of backgrounds. The programmes are normally taken after completion of initial training, by:

  • students wishing to consolidate or extend their dance study;
  • mature students wishing to enter, or re-enter, formal education in order to develop and refresh their professional skills;
  • those who are coming to dance study through a non-traditional route.

Student Testimonial

"One thing that struck me when I started here I was being told to 'be open to new things', and that's what I've told myself throughout my time here. Don't be judgemental about something you haven't done before, just be open to it and welcome it."

Songhay Toldon, Graduate Diploma in Dance Studies student
