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.

The Bachelor's program in dance pedagogy is a three-year education for you who want to teach dance and who find it interesting to work with people. The dance teacher's profession is constantly evolving and after the education you have good opportunities to be an enterprising and independent entrepreneur who works with dance and creation in different ways.

Working as a dance pedagogue is about inspiring and meeting people. It means being creative and creating good conditions for people's development and creativity in dance. It also implies being able to discuss and reflect on dance in the society. The education provides a strong foundation in both art and science. You study courses that focus on dance as an art form, pedagogy and didactics as well as courses with a focus on different target groups. This means that during your studies you get to practice teaching dance and writing, reflecting, critically reviewing and discussing dance, choreography and pedagogy among other things. A norm-critical and intersectional perspective runs like a common thread through education.

You immerse yourself in choreography, in a chosen dance genre that is your main focus, and in other dance genres that you choose yourself. It creates that you develop your dance technique and choreographic skills, work with bodily and aesthetic expressions and deepen your artistic ability.

The goal is for you to gain the basic knowledge needed to be able to teach dance to different target groups. But also to develop an independence to be able to make your own choices and have the opportunity to influence how dance is conveyed and for whom. The education gives you the conditions to work with dance teaching in different contexts and organizations for different target groups and to work in your own artistic collectives and companies that work with stage dance and workshops.

In 2021, you can apply for the dance genres: Folk Dance, Jazz Dance, Classical Ballet, Modern and Contemporary Dance and Street.

  • Application and tuition fees

    If you are a Swedish citizen or a citizen of another EU or EEA country you are not required to pay application or tuition fees. Some other groups are also exempt from the requirement to pay application and study fees.

    A few years ago Sweden introduced application and tuition fees for higher education. The level of the study fees depends on which course/programme they are for, and the level is set in order to cover the actual costs of the course/programme in question.

    If you are required to pay an application fee, we need to have received your payment by the last date for applications. The application fee is SEK 900. 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.

    The tuition fee for the Bachelor Programme in Dance Pedagogy starting in the autumn of 2021 is SEK 179 000 for the first semester and SEK 1 740 000 for the programme as a whole.
