Déda is a regional creative centre for dance, contemporary circus and outdoor work and has theatre, studio and gallery spaces in Derby city centre. It is the base for our MA Dance and Choreography course.

Déda is the city centre base for our MA Dance and Choreography course and has studio, theatre and gallery spaces for dance artists to further their practice.

MA Dance and Choreography students create work that is professionally presented by Déda’s Technical Stage Management Team in the Déda Theatre or at an alternative venue/location as required. This unique opportunity enables students to learn in a professional capacity, providing knowledge and connections for producing work after their MA.

The venue has recently expanded its facilities in Derby city centre and gained a new state-of-the-art studio and production space. This means Déda can now host large-scale dance productions by in-house groups and national visiting companies.
