    Be part of the world’s largest and most vibrant university dance department, rated No. 1 for dance research in the UK.

    Roehampton Dance offers outstanding undergraduate and postgraduate degrees as well as world-leading PhD supervision. Our courses recognise the dual nature of dance study – theoretical and artistic. You will learn about different contemporary dance perspectives and how dance influences society.

    The rich mix of events, including residencies, workshops, an annual festival, and research seminars, results in a lively and stimulating artistic-scholarly community. You will benefit from our collaborations with professional dance artists, companies, and organisations. With our London location, Roehampton Dance is a great place to start or expand your career in dance.

  • Courses

    Our courses develop critical thinking and understanding of dance as well as choreographic, technical, and performance skills. You can shape your own degree, drawing on diverse artistic and multicultural contexts.

    BA Dance Studies has a perfect mix of theory and practice. Our master’s degrees allow you to explore your particular interest in dance, in areas such as anthropology, choreography, history, philosophy, politics, and sociology. Our graduates find their degree gives them strong career prospects.

  • Teaching

    The expertise of our teaching staff ranges across theory, choreography, and technique. Most lecturers are archive researchers whose world-leading research feeds into their teaching.

    The dance artists also work professionally, running their own companies or performing and choreographing independently. Unlike other degrees, Roehampton Dance offers six techniques at BA level: ballet, Cunningham, Graham, Limón, release, and contact improvisation.

    Teaching staff are Fellows of the Higher Education Academy, and one has been recognised with a National Teaching Fellow award.


  • Research

    The internationally recognised Centre for Dance Research (CDR) has a unique concentration of research-active academics and dance artists who supervise across the full spectrum of research in dance. In the recent national assessment of university research (REF 2014), CDR came top in dance for the quality of our publications and artistic work – and sixth nationally across all subjects.

    CDR provides a vibrant research culture, with seminars and conferences involving international guests, staff, and students. We have the largest doctoral community in the world.
