Lecturer in Dance


Kingston University, London
Due July 16, 2021

This is an incredibly exciting time to join the dance team at Kingston University as we launch our newly validated BA Dance course with a brand-new suite of modules in our new purpose built state of the art dance studios. This role will support the development and delivery of the BA Dance and BA Dance and Drama courses, both as module leader and as a team delivering shared modules. You will be responsible for planning module content, delivering sessions, supporting students and marking assessments. Teaching will include lectures, seminars and workshops. Modules may include: Dance Techniques and Cultures, Creating Dance, Hip Hop and Urban Performance Practices, Dance Industry and Dance Company.

The Person

You will be an inspirational dance artist and practitioner who has experience of working in the dance industry and/or dance education sector in a practical capacity. You will have experience of working in one or more of these areas: contemporary dance and hip hop dance theatre and technique. This could also include choreographic practice, dance on screen and new technologies, dance technique training, Dance of the African Diaspora, Indian Classical Dance, and/or performance. Guidance and training will be provided to support suitable candidates with working in the higher education sector.

You will be ambitious for our students and have the ability to inspire and provide an excellent learning experience for our students through practical and creative teaching in dance studio. You will be adaptable and be able to contribute to the development of a range of the new suite of modules to be introduced in September 2021.

The Faculty

The School of Arts and Communication is different to the classic art school/humanities model. Staff and students are encouraged to think creatively and intellectually while creating through writing and practice. The rich and varied courses taught in the School make it a friendly and constructive place to work with a diverse student body at the forefront of teaching. Students are sought after throughout the creative industries with many going on to work following networking opportunities with some of our partners within the creative industries.
