Course Introduction

In studying Drama with Dance you will combine critical and creative practice, giving you the skills to master physical performance, across both drama and dance.

On this course the text and the body, thinking and doing, work together. There's no barrier between theory and practice: theory helps you understand and make the most of practice, while practice sheds light on theory. You'll find your place as an informed dance and theatre-maker and by studying a variety of practices, by yourself and with others, you'll get knowledge of the industry as a whole, and learn how your interests could fit into the bigger picture.

In the study of dance, there is a focus on an active and exploratory engagement with the discipline, and how movement, choreography and text help shape performance practices. This course will take you beyond the traditional borders of dance, as embodied awareness and practice is complemented by cultural, historical, social and aesthetic context. This will enable you to reflect critically about what you do, enhancing your own performance, choreographical skills and technique.

We are top-rated for teaching and research, with a campus community recognised for its creativity. Our staff cover a huge range of theatre and performance studies, but we're particularly strong in contemporary British theatre, international and intercultural performance, theatre history, dance and physical theatre, and contemporary performance practices.
