Dance BA (Hons)

Dance BA (Hons)

In Dance, we aim to give undergraduate students an experience that normally they would have to wait until they are graduates to have. We see them not as students but as artists in training. We equip them with the skills needed not only to become performers but in all aspects of professional practice. You can study our Dance programme as a Specialist degree.

  Our research is part and parcel of our teaching here at York St John. Many of the modules studied by Dance students have been informed by the research work of our team of experienced dance teachers and academics.  

On arriving at YSJ, new dance students can take part in an exchange programme and spend the first semester of their second year at Potsdam State University of New York.


At YSJ Dance our links with the  professional industry include close partnerships with York City Council  and Yorkshire Dance. We offer students practice based opportunities to discover which area of dance they are interested in through professional placements. We also have strong links to dance activity and development in the local community.
