Course content

If you are interested in the development of dance education, a comprehensive understanding of the science underpinning the art form is a must. This innovative programme – the only one of its kind in Scotland – offers just that, giving you the scientific theory and specialist skills that will inspire you to push the frontiers of dance and dance education.

As you study the science relevant to dance performance and education, you will have access to resources at our Institute for Sport, Physical Education and Health Sciences, the UK’s leading provider of physical education training.

Through a multi-disciplinary blend of theory and practice, you will learn to prepare dancers to improve performance, explore the physiological and developmental issues that relate to dance education and training, and develop awareness of changing trends.
