The University of Melbourne aspires to establish its dance program as a world-leader with a vision of artistic, pedagogical and research excellence, building upon its significant 40-year plus history. As part of this aspiration, a revitalised Bachelor of Fine Arts (Dance) degree has been implemented in 2021.

You will have a post graduate degree in a relevant field (or equivalent professional practice), an established reputation as a dance artist and demonstrated teaching experience at the undergraduate level in a higher education context. Strong communication, collaborative and interpersonal skills are also required.
