Our performing arts courses will provide you with a unique experience, combining academic teaching with the insights of practising theatre and dance professionals. With 1.9 million people working in the creative  industries, your degree can open the door to a range of careers. From dance and music to technical theatre and costume and set design, our courses are the perfect blend of academic studies and hands-on experience working with industry professionals. We own Derby Theatre – a working professional theatre – and Déda, Derby’s creative centre for dance, hosts our dance course, so you’ll learn from professional choreographers, dance companies and from watching regular professional performances.
