IAB Foundation Certificate

About the Programme
The IAB Foundation Certificate in Dance provides a wonderful opportunity for students to develop and grow as dance performers. It is for talented and passionate students who want a year of immersive practical training across Jazz, ballet, commercial and contemporary dance in a beautiful location in one of the best-resourced performing arts schools in Europe. 

The IAB Foundation Certificate in Dance can be seen as a stand-alone qualification or as a precursor to entry into three or four year degree programmes in dance.

The course is all about doing – learning through practice – in a supportive yet challenging environment. 

What You Will Study
The IAB foundation Certificate is practical and studio based. Each week you will have multiple technique classes in:

  • Street and Commercial Dance
  • Contemporary / Modern Dance
  • Ballet
  • Tap

Supported by:

  • Acting and Singing for the Dancer

Across the year you will have substantial opportunities to perform, either in the IAB theatre or elsewhere. 

The Next Step
The principle aim of this programme is to provide you with the skills, knowledge and expertise to either enter the profession directly or to gain a place on one of the Institute’s Dance degree programmes, or at other centres of excellence.
