Semester Study Abroad courses are for students and professionals who wish to spend time abroad, developing their creative skills and gaining credits towards their university degree, but do not necessarily want to spend 2-3 years in another country.

Students are fully integrated with our BA (Hons) students in an exciting, creative University environment.

This highly practical Semester Study Abroad Dance course provides those aspiring to have a key role in the Dance Industry with a thorough preparation for a career in this area. Working alongside the full-time BA (Hons) Dance students and using our outstanding facilities at Pavilion Dance South West as well as on campus, you will develop specialist knowledge and skills in a creative studio environment.

Practical dance techniques will focus on both contemporary dance styles and strength and core training through a Pilates training method with choreography foundations exploring individual dance vocabulary.  There are areas of the course focusing specifically on the development of the dance artist as teacher or producer.

A videoed audition is required from all prospective candidates who wish to do a Study Abroad Dance course at the Arts University. The film’s purpose is to show us how you communicate and translate ideas visually. Your film will be reviewed by a panel including the Course Leader.

Other types of programmes, such as bespoke courses are also available. For more information or to apply for a course contact us on +44 1202 363824 or email
