Join BA (Hons) Dance students on Thursday 3rd May for their annual ‘Day of Dance’ event, and dance your way across campus.
On Sunday 29 May, you are cordially invited to ‘Springboard’; a celebration of dance and sculpture, in partnership with The Roche Court Educational Trust.
To be performed at Pavilion Dance South West, ‘Springboard’ is a chance for first-year students from the BA (Hons) Dance course to share their original choreographic material in a live performance setting, inspired by sculptures at Roche Court.
Second year BA (Hons) Dance students were introduced to their new Dance Practitioner unit last week.
This unit gives the dancers the chance to explore ‘real time’ dance industry strands. During the unit launch students were given three options to work on for the term; either working as part of the dance team at Queen Elizabeth’s School (QE) in Wimborne, volunteering as part of the Parkinson’s Dance classes that run at Pavilion Dance South West (PDSW) or to work for the Lila Dance Company on a live brief.
As Wimbledon returns to our screens again, AUB students celebrate by marking 80 years since the championships were first televised by the BBC in 1937.
AUB students from BA (Hons) Costume and Performance Design, BA (Hons) Dance, BA (Hons) Film Production and BA (Hons) Make-up for Media and Performance collaborated to produce a two minute film celebrating 80 years of working the camera!
First year BA (Hons) Dance students have taken part in a workshop with digital dance specialist, Wayne Sables.
The aim of the residency was to explore the relationship between dance and digital technologies including film, projection and lighting, as well as to consider how the onlooker might view the work, whether as live or recorded performance.
The students took part in a video, created by The Training Room, to support the Bournemouth Bay Run and promote the 80s dress code.
To make a story come true, it has to leave the page. We have to set it free. We are the keepers of our own stories, but the key that unlocks them is not always easy to find… Who am I? Why am I here? What memories will I leave behind?
Second Year BA (Hons) Dance students will perform an original piece of immersive dance theatre entitled, A Letter to My Future Self. The work focuses on identity and the journey of self-discovery.
The BA (Hons) Dance department at AUB is looking forward to welcoming students into state-of-the-art new studios, following major investment on campus.
These light, airy spaces will offer our students the perfect environment to bring their creativity to life.
Wayne Sables is fascinated with the relationships between dance, technology and space, and how they can be used to engage and empower an audience. Through an intensive week’s work, Wayne will be working with the first year BA (Hons) Dance students to create a series of short performance works. Each work will be presented in a different space, exploring a different dance and technology relationship. Live streamed each day, it places the concept of dance performance in a new light.
Earlier today, AUB students met with Darcey Bussell CBE, the former Principal Dancer at the Royal Ballet at Pavilion Dance South West in Bournemouth.
