Dance

The BA (Hons) Dance course at the University of Lincoln offers a practice-based curriculum that reflects the vocational needs of professional dancers. Our Taster Days are a great way to experience the life of a UoL dancer and see the excellent facilities on offer first hand. The day will include Release based Technique classes, Choreographic workshops and Contact Improvisation and Partnering sessions. Staff and students will be available to talk to students interested in studying Dance at university. As part of our subject talk we will also consider graduate employability and career prospects. The day is designed to gain new skills, meet new people and have fun!

Drama & Theatre:

The School of Drama at Lincoln University offers the opportunity to engage in specially formulated workshops to give a flavour its Honours Degree programme but also to stretch the capabilities and stimulate the interests of students currently in Further Education. Participants will be able to learn from actor/choreographer/director Teo Ghil in a workshop that will be based around the principles of movement and ensemble, and they will explore the foundational aspects of how to read a play text with Dr James Hudson.

Fine Art:

BA (Hon) Fine Art at the University of Lincoln asks how art engages with everyday life and questions how creativity can teach us what it is to be in the world with others. Taster days and workshops give participants the chance to experience some of this in practice. Workshops may include asking What Art Is, a practical conversation led by Dr Martin Lang; How Drawing can be Understood in the Expanded Field, led by Dr Steve Fossey; and How Science and Art Collide, led by Dr Steve Klee. The sessions give a flavour of how art, space and society intersect and provide an insight into what studying Fine Art at the University of Lincoln might be like.
