During the Dance Studies programme of The University of Auckland students will grow as educators, performers, choreographers and researchers. Your award-winning teachers will help you develop confidence in leading others and working in teams.

 We focus on contemporary, cultural and community dance, interacting with different dance forms and working with people of all ages and abilities. Regular teaching and performance opportunities give you the chance to apply what you’ve learned while building your professional networks. Dance Studies operates in a family-orientated environment where your individual talents and background are valued.

Graduates confidently create their own businesses such as dance studios, dance companies and event management companies.
