Chichester has a long-standing reputation for its breadth of study. Drawing on the expertise of a highly professional teaching team and a range of visiting dance artists and choreographers we prepare the next generation of dance performers, choreographers, writers, dance filmmakers, teachers, somatic practitioners and community artists. The Dance Studies ‘Top Up’ degree allows you to complete your dance education and training to BA (Hons) level. The programme allows qualified applicants to join our 3rd year Dance students on a variety of creative and theoretical modules. The choice of available modules allows students to engage in areas of dance practice and performance that are related to careers in Performance, Choreography, Teaching, Dance Movement Psychotherapy, Community Dance, Production, and Administration.
