Based in Leeds, City of Dance, NSCD is a hub for contemporary dance in the North of England and a School of the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama. The 2015/16 academic year marks our 30th anniversary of delivering specialist conservatoire-level training to the most talented and committed students locally, nationally and internationally.

NSCD hosts just over 200 full-time students. We offer studies in contemporary dance at foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate level in an intimate, supportive and creative learning environment. We focus these programmes on the development of versatile, collaborative and individual dance artists with highly tuned technical, creative and performance skills. At 75% of the whole cohort, those enrolled on the undergraduate degree course represent the largest sector of the student body. For information on full-time study, please use the quick links below.
