The bbodance Level 4-6 Graduate Pathway
is primarily aimed at experienced dance teachers and professional dancers who have achieved a Level 5 qualification or above in Dance (e.g., a Level 6 BA Hons Degree in Dance)

During the application process, candidates are required to complete a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) form. When completing the form, we suggest that you request an exemption from the modules listed below, as they would usually have been covered during a dance degree or equivalent:

4.3 Safe Dance Practice
4.4 Applying Teaching and Learning Strategies; Micro-Teach
5.3 Dance History 
5.4 Developing Choreographic Practice

The Level 4-6 Graduate Pathway will usually consist of 10 modules from the bbodance courses from Level 4 to Level 6. The Pathway will also require students to independently plan and deliver 100 hours of dance.

Depending on your preference, the course can take either one or two academic years to complete. 

The course dates are listed on the pages of the courses from Level 4 to Level 6, and will depend on your allocated modules.


The course usually costs £4,688 and includes free Associate Membership with bbodance. You may be eligible for external funding and additional discounts from us. See the full financial information.

Upon successful completion of the Level 4-6 Graduate Pathway, students may undertake professional formation to gain Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status.
