About the Course
If performance is your passion, take it to the world stage with Flinders University's Bachelor of Creative Arts (Dance). Delivered in partnership with TAFE SA and Flinders University, this rigorous dance program explores both practical and theoretical elements of dance. Classes cover classical and contemporary dance, together with acting, anatomy and kinesiology, history, music, composition and production, with intensive training held in state-of-the-art rehearsal and performance spaces. The course is industry focused, giving you rare and exclusive access to professional dance artists, companies and their networks.
Performance is combined with study of the theoretical knowledge that is essential for gaining employment and building skills as a professional dancer. The course has a strong emphasis on performance and on realising productions for public presentation and equips you with comprehensive professional skills in the areas of major employment in the entertainment industry, realistic dance techniques, devised movement practices, dance project realisation, choreography and stage performance. The course introduces you to areas of development and increasing importance in the Australian industry encouraging you to work as a conceptual artist through courses specialising in techniques of group devising, auto-performance and choreography and develops your awareness of the relevance of these discourses to professional practice.
