Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance

Course Introduction

BSc (Hons) Dance Science

The Programme consists of three parts (Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3), which are undertaken over three consecutive academic years on a full time basis. Advancing through the programme, students will be increasingly encouraged to develop as independent learners.

In Part 1 the focus is on developing knowledge of key areas of Anatomy, Physiology, Nutrition and Motor Skill Learning. Alongside this, students will acquire fundamental research skills including finding and interpreting sources critically and gaining knowledge of the main principles of research and research methods.

In Part 2 the focus is on consolidating and extending the material covered in Part 1 while introducing Performance Psychology and acquainting students with a range of methodologies for analysing movement and dance. Students will develop critical, creative and communication skills as well as foster a broader understanding of research methods. They will begin to apply their knowledge and understanding in different contexts and deepen their own embodied understanding of the material introduced through technical practice.

In Part 3 the focus will be on the application of the theoretical areas of Dance Science gained in Parts 1 and 2, to different contexts and populations. Students will develop the ability to evaluate critically, the outcome of their decisions and develop the capacity to plan, undertake and write-up, an independent research study.

Throughout the three years, students will engage in Technical Practice to apply theories, and concepts learned in the other modules, to develop their own dance skills and to deepen their understanding of Dance Science through practical and embodied learning.
