The highly focused and nurturing environment LCDS provided allowed me to develop and expand my artistic practice as well as forming friendships and collaborative relationships with my peers. - Emily Lue-Fong, BA graduate 2021.

Our BA (Hons) in Contemporary Dance develops versatile artists with all the tools and skills for a prolific career in dance and the creative industries.

The course is fun and highly intensive, with studio-based classes, enhanced by a range of contextual studies that directly relate to the experience of performing, making, researching and understanding dance. Plus, you will have access to unique performance and creative opportunities throughout the course.

You will be taught by exceptional teachers, many of whom are also practicing artists, international guest choreographers and have opportunities to work with creative industries leading organisations such as: Wimbledon School of Art, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, National Centre for Circus arts, Sadler’s Wells, Victoria & Albert Museum and Central St Martins.

Along with your fellow students, you will be recognised and treated as an individual with your own unique needs and progression journey and quickly become part of a community where dance makers are inspiring and learning from each other. 

Online pathways are available to support those students who wish to study remotely for part of their course.
