Dance in Education

Profile of the programme

In accordance with LMIPA’s vision, graduates of the Dance in Education programme are not only trained to teach dance, but are also competent performing artists themselves. Dance in Education graduates have specific expertise within pop dance, theatre dance, urban dance and musical dance. Ballet, jazz dance, tap dance and song & dance are strong supporting elements in these forms of dance. As a result, dance educators can teach lessons in these disciplines. Dance in Education graduates are also equipped to design courses for the various genres, which can be tailored to different age groups and levels. In addition, graduates are required to form a clear personal vision on theatre education as well as to have developed self-management skills and learning competences. LMIPA trains students for an international professional field. Nearly all graduates have gained experience abroad. In this light, it is LMIPA’s vision that a broad, international outlook is required for starting professionals.
