If you are, or have been, a professional dancer, you may be eligible for our Professional Dancer Discount.

As part of the discount, you would receive a 15% reduction in course fees and may, depending on your prior learning, be exempt from taking the Level 4 Diploma in Dance Teaching, which is normally a prerequisite to taking Level 5.

Level 5 is not specific to a genre or syllabus; you can apply the skills you develop to teach any genre you desire.


Our upcoming Level 5 course costs £2,270. With the discount, it would be £1,929.50. The sum is payable by six instalments and includes Associate Membership with us for the entire duration of your studies. This grants you free online access to all our syllabus resources, written and video, as well as a 90% discount on all CPD courses we offer, in the studio as well as online. 

To further finance your education, you may also be eligible to apply for a Retraining Grant from Dancers Career Development.


The bbodance Level 5 Diploma in Dance Teaching runs for 7 months and consists of 5 modules, including Curriculum Design, Assessment for Learning, and Teaching and Learning in Practice. The course is delivered as a virtual learning platform with online lectures, tutorials, and a high level of support for each module. Formative submissions receive detailed written feedback from faculty.


Our next Level 5 course starts in February 2022. We're currently accepting applications.
