BA (Hons) Theatre Dance: Second Year

The second year builds on core skills developed in the first year to enable students to reach professional levels of technique; the second year is characterised by an increased number of choices in the core programme in preparation for the final year. A variety of performance opportunities, such as Design for Dance – a joint project devised with Central St Martins – are also available to second-year students.

Theory work focuses on the influence of the emergence of modernism, contemporary dance, the emergence of the stage and screen musical and theories of popular culture. This year also offers the continued study of repertoire and choreography, with an increased focus on contemporary media including dance on film.

“I have worked with many students from London Studio Centre as a teacher, choreographer and employer. I have always found them dedicated, versatile and above all professional in their approach to my work. They are some of the most talented dance artists I have had the pleasure to work with” – Kate Prince, Artistic Director of ZooNation Dance Company
