Teaching staff are experienced in an extensive range of dance practices and are active in the national and international dance community.
You can't defer your offer in this course. You must start in the semester you apply for.
This course offers training in the core technique of contemporary dance and experience in a broad range of genres including ballet, hip hop, jazz and yoga, in addition to alternative dance styles from a diverse range of global cultures, including Latin. Duo and partnering are also learnt within these styles.
Performance events across site-specific, digital and theatrical domains engage you with the public interface of your practice. Technology is integrated within choreographic workshops which include the exploration of a variety of interdisciplinary approaches. When not in the studio you will engage with theoretical knowledge, involving analysing and reflecting on both the mind and body in dance, and the roles of diverse styles.
You can choose to study other creative industries disciplines including creative writing, drama, entertainment, fashion, interior design studies, journalism, music studies and visual arts practice. If you wis h to become a primary or secondary school dance teacher you will complete your dance studies by studying a minor in a different subject area, allowing you to develop skills for a second teaching area. Following completion of your course, you can apply to continue into a graduate-entry teacher education course*.
You will benefit from partnerships with organisations such as Expressions Dance Company, the Queensland Ballet Company and the Royal Academy of Dance UK.
Graduates move into careers as dance teachers in schools (with completion of a graduate-entry teacher education course*), private studios, universities and professional dance company education programs. Graduates also work as choreographers, dance researchers and academics, dance journalists, festival and community project directors and producers, independent dance practitioners, arts administrators, and dance health professionals (with further specialised training).
* Entry to graduate-entry teacher education courses usually requires that you have studied a range of units in a different subject area to the main focus of your degree. This forms the basis of your second teaching area. Check the entry requirements for specific teaching courses at www.qut.edu.au/study
