Learning dance at the highest level demands exceptional discipline, precision and commitment

The IAB offers a dance pathway from Foundation through to Masters level.

Each dance programme is taught in classic conservatoire style, rigorous, intensive and creative. On each course, the technique classes are supported by theory and contextual study. Performance work enables the synthesis and practical demonstration of technical artistry, intellectual understanding and emotional connection with the work.

Courses are delivered by lecturers with a wealth of experience, both as performers and dance lecturers. Their focus is on helping you to develop your technical skills to a professional level, inspiring your creative confidence, and preparing you for a life in dance.

Take a closer look at the programmes that interest you, find out what you’ll learn, how you’ll be taught, and the opportunities your course will give you to launch a career in this exceptional field of performance.
