It is with great sadness that the University of South Wales has decided to close the Dance BA (Hons) course to further entry. The faculty has claimed that there is no market for a dance course in Wales that meets a sustainable (financial) threshold.

Over the past three years the USW dance course has worked with over 30 organisations and artists across the Welsh dance sector and created over 45 performances. Both the internal and external artists have commented on the professionalism and high quality of artists that the USW dance course creates.

This shortsighted decision has not considered the impact it will have not only for the students and graduates but also for the Welsh dance sector- there will be only one dance specialised degree course offered in higher education in Wales. Where will the youth dancers of Wales go?

The institution has failed to recognise our growing reputation as a course- we need more time, three years isn’t enough.

Please sign this petition to help us stop the closure of the course. Your support is much appreciated!
