Course Description

The BA (Hons) Theatre Dance provides a broad base of professional training in ballet, contemporary dance, jazz dance and music theatre, with in-depth development of specialist skills, educating quality performers who graduate into all areas of the performing arts.

Performance opportunities are built into the curriculum throughout all three years, ranging from informal, in-house presentations of work to full evening performances at major London venues and elsewhere across the UK.

Technical training and performance are combined with creative practice and choreography, as well as intellectually-challenging theory and research. Students are enabled to think critically about dance, enhancing their understanding of the industry and their development as performers and practitioners. Studies include anatomy, and the ever-changing history and culture of dance – from ballet to Beyoncé.

In the first two years the core programme of ballet, contemporary dance and jazz dance is extended by specialist skills that build competencies. Student choice is a particular feature of LSC’s provision; not constricted to one area of dance, students are able to continue developing areas of special interest as they progress through the course, embodied by the choices they make. Students committed to classical ballet may study virtuosity, pointe work, classical repertoire and pas de deux, whereas those with a passion for music theatre or jazz theatre dance can focus time and energy on singing and drama, combining those disciplines with dance in performance. Students interested in pursuing a specialism in contemporary dance build on Graham-based core training with Cunningham Technique, Limon, contact improvisation and release techniques, while students pursuing jazz dance can benefit from core work in Isolation Technique developed by Jack Cole/Matt Mattox and different lyrical and hip hop styles. This leads to increased specialisation in preparation for the specialist professional options in the final year, in which students join one of LSC’s four performing companies. Here they tour to professional venues performing work created by professional choreographers and directors.
