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.

"I took part in a wide variety of (free!) extra-curricular activities that the University ran and I was a founding member of Novato Dance - a group which continued to run for a decade after we started it."
