Events and Performances – Bath Spa University

Create. Perform. Transform.

Bath Spa's Dance department has a vibrant calendar of events and performances with over fifty different activities taking place each year. 

In addition to showcasing a wide range of exciting work from our emerging dance artists, the University also hosts performances, workshops, and research events with our extensive network of professional artists and companies.

"There were so many things that happened whilst I was at Bath Spa... I can't pick just one or two. I felt like the whole course and experience was one big highlight of life so far. I've learnt so much, not just academically, but in life. I feel like I really lived and experienced these three years of my life to the fullest."
