Upon graduation, you will be fully equipped to teach at schools or to work as an independent dance professional and cultural entrepreneur. You may take up a teaching position at a dance school, at a primary or secondary school, or at a youth centre. Or perhaps you will take a role at an arts centre or in the teaching department of a dance company, or as part of a community dance project – an increasingly popular field.
‘The Dance in Education study programme prepares you for the field of work like nothing else. You learn a lot about yourself through the internships because you’re working with so many different audiences, cultures, perspectives and sources of dance. I learned to dare to think in an entrepreneurial way and to think big. My internships actually became my real places of work, which goes to show just how relevant the study programme is to this dynamic field of work.’
