DANCE

Study Dance in the heart of the city of Liverpool. Dance can be described as a fluid art form. It is constantly changing, exposed to different cultural contexts, bodily histories and physical disciplines, as well as being influenced by political and social movements. This degree aims to explore dance as a living practice and dynamic art form. You will consider how dance throughout eastern and western cultures has been cultivated through traditional training practices as well as more contemporary cultural influences.

Dance at Liverpool Hope looks at the bodies, techniques, performances and histories that make up dance practice today. The dance team are all professional practitioners and active researchers whose specialist skills map onto the diverse areas of dance history, dance technique, site-specific choreography, multicultural dance and somatic practice.

During your studies, you will have the opportunity to work alongside professional visiting choreographers and dance artists. You will perform for public audiences as well as develop a studio practice through one-to-one feedback and group seminars, including regular dance classes and workshops.

Here at Liverpool Hope we actively encourage students to consider their art form as an ethical and embodied practice, where we can confidently claim that dance is crucial to the worlds we decide to make.

MUSIC

As a world-renowned city of music - with active and increasingly growing popular, classical, jazz, electronic and experimental music scenes - Liverpool is an ideal location for pursuing the creative practice and study of music. The BA Music Programme at Liverpool Hope will offer you the opportunity to explore the many facets of performing, composing, producing, and intellectually engaging with music across a broad range of topics and genres, including popular, classical, jazz, electronic, and world music traditions.

Our music programme benefits from a unique, creative scholarly approach that features:

Our Music programme is part of our School of Creative and Performing Arts, based at the Creative Campus, and housed in the purpose-built Capstone building.

There is also a good stock of musical instruments and outboard technology to cater across all musical genres.

Our students have had opportunities to gain professional experience with a variety of professional organisations, including Liverpool Sound City, Immix Ensemble, Parr Street Studios, Sentric Music, Ditto Music, The Vocal Booth studio, Melodic Distraction (radio station), and The Beatles Experience, among others.

We continually establish connections within the wider industry and our programme regularly hosts music industry professionals, who provide real-world knowledge through their guest lectures.
