Careers in Dance

There are no clearly set paths set for Dance students, but different avenues will open up once graduated. While many will aspire to be on stage, lots of performers move into areas such as choreography, direction, company manager and project management. Teaching is also another popular destination and joint honours degrees are available for students who wish to complete both. All of these roles require a complex knowledge of Dance and by studying the degree at a UK university, you will be well equipped for the years ahead.
