BA in Dance

University of Nicosia
Online & Campus Combined Part time 4 years September 2017 Cyprus Nicosia Greece Athens + 2 more

To provide intellectually and creatively challenging courses which fulfill the personal development of students and are founded on scholarship, artistry and research. [+]

Duration (years): 4 Qualification Awarded: Dance (BA, 4 years) Level of Qualification: 1st Cycle (Bachelor’s Degree) Language of Instruction: English Mode of Study: Full-time or part-time; some General Education courses are offered on e-learning basis. Minimum Credits: 120 Minimum ECTS Credits: 240 Profile of the Programme: Aims The main educational aims of the programme are the following: I. To provide intellectually and creatively challenging courses which fulfill the personal development of students and are founded on scholarship, artistry and research. II. To enhance participation, guidance, support learning and teaching policies which fulfill the needs of a diverse student community at high standards of achievement. III. To develop in students a blend of knowledge, experience, transferable skills and capabilities through a curriculum and intellectual/artistic environment that strengthens their employability and provides the foundation for further study. 2. Objectives The main educational objectives of the programme are the following: I. To provide students with a high level practical, theoretical and artistic education in the field of dance. II. To provide a conceptual framework of dance as reception, applied (kinaesthetic), and creative process which will enable students to appraise and appreciate the wide operative range of the field. III. To equip students with the knowledge, the technical skills and artistic competencies (kinaesthetic/physical, spatial, creative, perceptual), which would enable them to enter the market as versatile professionals. IV. To provide students with the knowledge and skills with which to conduct in-depth inquiries and research in fields of dance, relating dance to social, cultural and political events, past and current. V. To prepare students for a realistic career prospect in dance performance (contemporary dance based), dance composition/choreography, dance theory and research, dance history (including a cultural approach to dance), movement analysis, dance education, and ensemble directing. VI. To prepare students for postgraduate study in various areas of dance. Career Prospects: The art of dance is unique in that its primary medium is the body itself. In conjunction with the creative and analytical mind, movement can be an active, transformative prism for any aspect of life. This characteristic has, since antiquity, rendered dance an immediate and basic way for people to communicate, celebrate, express emotions, reach the divine, experience freedom and catharsis, or simply partake of the joy of movement. For many of these reasons dance remains a prominent part of modern, and, in turn, Cypriot society. Yet, like all the arts, dance is characterized by the changes, trends and challenges that reflect modernity. Residing in a number of social contexts and bearing specific functions within each from contemporary and abstract art to commercial advertising to popular culture to traditional practices to entertainment dance offers a broad realm of creative and professional opportunities. Not-for-profit dance organizations, dance troupes, contemporary dance, ballet and traditional dance festivals, and dance education programmes are on the rise in Cyprus and in Europe, receiving both public and private funding. On the other hand, more mainstream and commercial dance (in conjunction with pop music, video and social/club dancing) is a fast-growing area of business both nationally and internationally. Professionally, the contemporary conditions regarding dance mentioned above are an advantage. Due to the current diverse nature of the field of dance, its stark popularity and its rapidly evolving character locally, regionally, and internationally, there is a need for competent graduates trained for technical proficiency, innovation and versatility. Career opportunities for such graduates include performing, teaching, choreographing, arts management, arts/dance education programme and policy writing, dance writing and criticism and academia. More specifically, employment can be found in sectors such as primary and secondary education, tertiary education, private arts, public arts administration, and non-profit organizations. Finally, the unexplored areas in the field, waiting to be discovered and developed, undoubtedly provide exciting, promising prospects for the young dance performer, artist and educator. Access to Further Studies: Graduates of the programme can be accepted into Second Cycle degrees (Master’s Degree). Graduation Requirements The student must complete 240 ECTS and all programme requirements. A minimum cumulative grade point average (CPA) of 2.0 is required. Thus, although a ‘D-‘ is a PASS grade, in order to achieve a CPA of 2.0 an average grade of ‘C’ is required. In addition, all students must complete a Senior Research Project in their fourth year of study as part of the required course DAN-493/Senior Seminar, either written or written with a practical component. All students must perform in the Annual BODYPRINTS Dance Concert at least once, as a mandatory component of the required course DAN-311/Dance Company I, and Performance Concentration students must perform a second time, as a mandatory component of the required concentration course DAN-412/Dance Company II. Learning Outcomes On completion of the programme the student will be able to: I. Perform and interpret contemporary dance on a professional level, demonstrating a high level of technical proficiency, a broad range of movement qualities and dynamics and strong personal expression. II. Perform classical ballet with adequate proficiency, embodying the aesthetics and qualities of major styles within the technique (i.e. romantic, neoclassical, contemporary). III. Perform at least one cultural dance form with competence. IV. Demonstrate professional kineasthetic/spatial skills in all techniques. V. Demonstrate professional partnering technique. VI. Perform and interpret dance before a public audience. VII. Practice, interpret and successfully perform dance in various and diverse professional ensemble/dance company situations. VIII.

​BA (Hons) Dance is the first single honours degree in Wales and focuses on developing creative and reflective independent dance practitioners, equipped to work across performance, community and education contexts. [+]

​BA (Hons) Dance is the first single honours degree in Wales and focuses on developing creative and reflective independent dance practitioners, equipped to work across performance, community and education contexts. Contemporary dance is the main focus and is explored through 3 core strands: The Healthier Dancer; Dance Contexts: Choreography & Performance; and Professional Practice. In 2010-11 and 2012-13, the BA (Hons) Dance degree was awarded 100% student satisfaction in the National Student Survey. Dance in Wales and the UK: The picture of dance in Wales is one of continuous development. The worlds of creativity, performance, programming, participation and viewing are an integral part of the vibrant dance ecology. In order to further its ambitions for dance in Wales, the sector is consolidating existing strengths and building on achievements, whilst developing new initiatives and strategies, and pursuing vital partnerships at national and international level. Consequently the needs of the dance industry, not only in Wales but also across the whole of the UK, demand a highly skilled and innovative workforce. Life and career pathways are crucial to dance; through encounters with dance in school years to study and patterns of training at higher levels; and from there to the employment and retention of practitioners and the sustainability of practice and companies. The importance of preparing those who wish to pursue a career in dance cannot be over stated and as such, any education and training, whether at initial entry points, undergraduate, postgraduate or continuing professional development (CPD), needs to reflect this preparation and development. A more strategic approach to dance education, training and CPD in Wales has emerged in recent years with a clear growth and development in the range of provision. Our dance degree has made a significant contribution to that growth as the first single honours dance degree in Wales and its design and structure has taken account that all students need to be aware of, and sensitive to the issues and debates that are topical to dance and the need to develop a broad experience of creative, performance and teaching based dance work. Learning & Teaching​ Studying at University. Applicants are encouraged to recognise that studying Dance at university engages you in a range of environments. You will experience and learn about dance through an integrated approach where practice is informed by theory. At university year one serves as a foundation to your learning; year two provides an opportunity to apply this learning to your practice and in year three student learning shifts from a place of dependence to independence through new experiences. Students progress their learning through these three years, with tutor- led learning in year one, tutor-guided in year two and tutor-facilitated learning in year three. A student-centred approach ensures learning experiences are informed by current professional practice and dialogue. Students engage in a variety of activities to promote their learning - all learning is student-centred: - Technique classes (focus on individual development and peer learning) - Workshops (task based learning, collaborative practice, peer and micro teaching) - Lead lectures & discussion based learning - Independent study & research - Individual and group tutorials - Work based learning - Tutorial support (academic and pastoral) - Academic study support - ICT support (Blackboard as a learning resource) Features of learning and teaching within the programme include flexible and blended learning, social learning and work-based learning. More recently the programme embraces technology enhanced learning. The student experience is enhanced by strong industry partnerships providing opportunities both within and additional to the programme. The programme team is active within the industry as practitioners and researchers', ensuring their teaching is both current, relevant and research informed. Assessment A wide range of assessment methods are used which relate to the aims of the individual modules, these include: - Action Plans - Essays and Reports - Reflective Journals & Portfolios - Peer led micro – teaching - Group-based & Individual Project Work - Presentations (Individual and Group) - Tests on-line (Research Process) - Host Feedback (Professional Placements) - Independent Project (Dissertation) Employability & Careers​ There has been an increase in the range of career opportunities in the field of dance in recent years, fed by the increased demand for dance activity in a variety of settings. This exciting programme is designed to meet those demands by preparing skilled dance practitioners of the future. As such the course will prepare students for a range of careers in the dance industry, particularly work which takes place in performance, community and education settings. Career opportunities include freelance performers and choreographers, education and dance practitioners with professional dance companies, primary & secondary education dance specialists, dance development officers, researchers, community dance practitioners, inclusive practice, and commercial dance performers.
