Danspedagogy - Bachelor

Dance Pedagogy - Bachelor

This programme has Swedish as its main language of instruction. More information about the programme and how to apply can be found on Uniarts Swedish site. The Bachelor Programme in Dance Pedagogy is a three-year education for you who want to teach dance. Here you will find information about the structure and content of the programme.

Working as a dance pedagogue is about creating good conditions for different people's learning and creativity in dance. It also implies being able to discuss and reflect on dance in the society. In order to enjoy working as a dance pedagogue it is important that you enjoy teaching various groups in dance. The profession of the dance pedagogue is in constant transition. This means that after having completed the programme you have a good opportunity of being a creative and independent entrepreneur who works with dance in  different ways. Many of our previous students have started artistic companies that work with dance, both on stage and with teaching in various contexts.

The Bachelor's Programme in Dance Pedagogy

We educate independent dance pedagogues with a strong base in both art and science. The focus is the mixture of dance as artform and as pedagogy. During the programme courses of more theoretical and/or practical contents are interwoven to an entity.

Since Dance Pedagogy is based on the subject pedagogy, a great part of the programme consists of pedagogy, didactics and dance theory. This implies that during the studies the student will practice to teach dance and to write and discuss dance, choreography, pedagogy and the society as well.

The students will also deepen their knowledge in choreography and different dance genres that you choose. This means that you will develop your technical and choreografichal skills, you will work with bodily and aesthetical expression and deepen your artistic ability.

The aim is that you will achieve the basic knowledges required in order to teach dance to various groups. But you should also achieve the independence required to make your own choices and have the ability to affect and change how and to whom dance can be taught.

Students will be working in different dance genres but as an applicant you apply with the genre that you prefer to deepen your knowledge in.

2020 you can apply to the genres classical ballet, folkdance, jazz, modern and contemporary dance and street.

If you are required to pay the application fee and we have not received your payment by the last date for applications, we will not process your application.
