Course Information

The Bachelor in Dance Studies (Hons) has been designed to appeal to at least two audience typologies. First, the University of Malta targets matriculated students with a number of years’ experience of practical dance study who wish to pursue a career in Dance as intending performers, choreographers, teachers, dance journalists, managers and administrators in dance schools, therapists, community dance workers, etc. Second, we encourage the development (lifelong learning) of mature students (aged 23+) with a body of practical experience but no theoretical background who wish to learn more about choreography, dance theory, technology and dance, or pedagogy.

It is the intention of the University that this programme marks the first step towards the formation of dancers and choreographers with special focus on the use of technology. In addition, it would give the host country, Malta, the possibility of cultivating its own community of dance scholars and dance artist practitioners.
The programme is delivered in full-time mode. Academic staff are drawn from the UK, Holland, Germany and Malta. The Programme Director is Prof. Joanne Butterworth, formerly of the Research Centre for Dance, University of Leeds, UK., and of Fontys University of Applied Sciences, Tilburg, The Netherlands.
