Déda Creative Arts Employer Academy
BA (Hons) Dance with University of Derby
As a Creative Arts Employer Academy, Déda has joined Derby College’s latest initiative to provide students with work experience, special projects, masterclasses and mentoring.
This course gives a unique experience of learning within the working environment of the East Midlands’ dedicated dance house.
Our involvement in this innovative and exciting initiative is designed to broaden students’ employability skills and career opportunities across the creative arts industry. As well as rehearsing and performing as part of their BTEC level two and three courses, students have been involved in various projects with us, including the annual Derby Festé. We are facilitating their learning as they gain teaching experience with our youth groups – including working with children aged 4 to 19 years, in a range of styles and techniques from Ballet to Acrobatics.
Based at Déda, professionally equipped studios and new purpose-built facilities provide an ideal setting for students to engage with the dance profession and beyond through teaching, producing and residencies. This specialist degree will develop you as a high quality technical dance artist for performance, entertainment, theatre or film. You also have the opportunity to apply the skills you’ve gained in a range of community, health and education settings.
