The collective offer of modules, tutors, facilities and undergraduate dance companies has made this course an amazing experience.
“I’d heard a lot of good things about Edge Hill before coming here. I knew about EdgeFWD, the University’s all-male dance company, and how you get the opportunity to go out and perform. I’d also heard that a lot of people graduating from the university have been successful, which was a big draw for someone who wants to perform professionally. I also fell in love with the campus when I came for my audition because it is so beautiful.
As I’d hoped, being a member of EdgeFWD has had a huge impact on me. I’ve had the opportunity to work with external choreographers on ‘intensives’ where you create a performance which you then tour to venues and festivals across the North West. The professional process of auditioning for intensives, rehearsing and then touring is amazing, as well as a massive opportunity to network with other artists.
The course itself is great and I’ve already recommended it to several people, particularly because the degree allows you to choose from a wide range of modules. This enables you to tailor the degree to your interests, whether that’s musical theatre, performance or drama. You also get experiences outside of the classroom, including the opportunity to share platforms at events with students from other universities, which is a great way to interact and develop.
You also get a lot of contact time with brilliant lecturers who have a lot of industry experience and a breadth of knowledge. They are always willing to help you and give you a lot of advice and support. The facilities here are excellent too, with well-equipped studios and theatres on site which makes it easy to find good performance spaces.
The collective offer of modules, tutors, facilities and undergraduate dance companies has made this course an amazing experience. It’s given me the opportunity to experiment in different areas of dance and to develop the skills and contacts I need for a professional career.”
