The external standard requires students to critically analyse and demonstrate their understanding of a professional dance work.
Dance is a University approved subject. Skills gained in dance such as creative processes, analysis, innovation, communicating ideas, and collaborating effectively with others can be applied to a wide variety of occupations.
