Welcome to the Department of Dance

On behalf of all your lecturers and teaching staff I would like to warmly welcome you to your academic home at Roehampton, the Department of Dance.

The Department of Dance is one of the world's largest and most vibrant university dance departments, where we blend choreography and performance with world-leading thinking in dance, in a creative and supportive atmosphere. 

Our specialised studio and performance facilities host year-round programmes of professional and student performances, training and research and I hope you will take part in some of these. We also have two active student-led societies: Roehampton Dance Society and Third Row Dance which give you further opportunities to explore your potential.

If you are joining us as a post-graduate student, you will be welcomed into a diverse research community. You will engage with world-leading scholars in a collaborative atmosphere where you can develop provocative, novel ways of thinking about and practising dance.

With our London location and close links to the professional dance sector, I'm sure you'll find that Roehampton is a really inspiring place for you to discover or expand your career in dance.

I look forward to seeing you on campus soon.

Professor Graham White
Acting Head of Department, Dance
