A frontrunner in international dance research, the University of Roehampton’s Dance Department is the most highly rated dance department in the UK, as evidenced in REF2021, with 94% of our research judged world-leading or internationally significant. We have long been leaders in the field of dance research, through our seminars, conferences, performances, publications and engagement with organisations beyond the University 

Our master's programmes celebrate diversity and speak to the imperatives of a changing dance ecology in the 21st century:
