NEW!  BA (Hons) Degree in Diverse Dance Styles
Subject to validation by University of Roehampton
IRIE! dance theatre presents the new BA (Hons) degree in Diverse Dance Styles, a new and exciting course presenting African, Caribbean, Contemporary and Urban dance styles, the first degree course to present these styles equally.  Dance technique, choreography and performance will be supported by the cultural context of each style. Based at the Moonshot Centre, (the home of the company) students will be part of a creative community, including:
  • a performance company;

  • independent artists developing their professional practice and

  • a community engagement programme.
 The industry link with a dance company adds an exciting dimension to the course, through work placements and networking opportunities.
The film was created by HORNSEYWOOD Films - editor Carl Bryan.
Programme Outline
Year 1: Level 4
The first year provides a solid foundation in African, Caribbean, Contemporary and Urban dance technique, underpinned by information on health, fitness and injury prevention. Theory will cover the historical and cultural context of each form, through lectures, seminars and research. Choreographic modules will encourage the development of individual movement language supported by the study of recorded and live performance work. The year will introduce a range of career pathways.

The second year builds on the foundation of Year 1 while extending technical training through the introduction of a repertory module, looking at key works in the repertoire of current companies. Creative and leadership skills are developed through a group choreographic project, encouraging independent and collaborative work in preparation for future employment.  Links will be made with professional practice as working methods and key works are explored.  During Year 2 a Site-Specific Performance will be created in a London landmark, former sites used by IRIE! have included a museum, church, nightclub, market square and park.
