PERA’s four-year full-time degree programme provides an inspirational education environment that enables students to grow as versatile and autonomous contemporary dance artists with highly-tuned technical, creative and performance skills.

Offering a range of contemporary dance techniques and ballet in addition to creative classes and theory, the programme aims to stimulate the individuality and growth of each student as highly reflective, expressive, powerful and thinking dancers.

In preparing future dancers for the ever-widening field of contemporary dance, PERA views dance within the broader context of the performing arts, with a prime goal to facilitate a varied and diverse learning experience. In the same spirit, PERA constantly seeks to expand its international network to foster a dynamic and culturally enriched education climate that offers a wide range of training approaches, creative processes and artistic philosophies.

Alongside a permanent team of teachers, PERA’s Dance BA programme is underpinned by monthly collaborations with highly intriguing and experienced guest artists/teachers from around the world. This intrinsic aspect of the programme nourishes the students’ learning experience in a unique way by exposing them to a variety of learning practices and contexts, with the aim of supporting their development as technically advanced, adaptive and creative dance artists.

A major component of the Dance BA is PERA ID – Intensive Dance Workshop where students work with a number of distinguished dance artists. The aim of the intensive is to support the ongoing development of students in relation to training, improvisation and composition. A source of inspiration, PERA ID encourages both self-reflection and creative exchange as well as nurturing students’ artistic and individual voices.

Furthermore, the study programme is designed to build a bridge between school and professional working practice by providing international internship possibilities whilst targeting successful career placements in the field of contemporary dance and creative industries.

Alternatively, PERA also offers a semester/year based certificate programme, PERA short.

PERA short is an intensive programme that lays the groundwork for further in-depth professional education experience in contemporary dance practice. This one-semester or one-year full-time undertaking is suitable for dance practitioners who wish to foster their technical expertise, creative skills and performance experience to build on their individual and artistic development through a rigorous training.

The programme is designed to be flexible and responsive where students are able to adjust their schedule according to their particular areas of interest. In doing so, the students will have the opportunity to work in close contact with all the invited artists and choreographers as well as taking part in annual intensive dance workshops known as PERA ID.

In so doing, students will have the opportunity to work in close contact with monthly invited artists and choreographers as well as taking part in PERA ID – Intensive Dance Workshop.
