Buckinghamshire New University Dance

What will this course cover?

This degree programme will focus on commercial dance forms that range from street, to Latin American and jazz. With the West End just a short train ride away, you’ll be perfectly located to immerse yourself in the performing arts.

You’ll take key modules in strength and conditioning for dance as well as dance technique. We’ll also spend time working on entrepreneurship and enterprise. This will help you to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to go into the field as a self-employed professional, or launch your own dance related business.

What are the entry requirements?

A typical offer will include GCSE Maths and English at grade C or above and a UCAS Tariff score of 80-96. A minimum of two full A-levels (or equivalent) is required. Every application is considered on an individual basis.

All candidates will be invited to discuss their work during a portfolio review/interview and the interviewing tutor will be looking for:

  • The ability to articulate your views on your own work.
  • A commitment and enthusiasm for the subject.
  • The potential for sustained professional development

Before the audition you will be given time to warm up. During the audition, candidates will be required to participate in a one hour group master class, which will be within the genre of dance taught on the course. You will need to be ready to start the class promptly.

The audition is an opportunity to show your skills and development potential. However, it is more important that you display the correct attitude, rather than aptitude. All candidates will need to also display their motivation, enthusiasm and work ethic.
