Dance Performance and Teaching, BA (Hons)



My name is Freya Abrams and I’m from a small village called Hesketh Bank which is in between Preston and Southport. I was drawn to UCLAN because of the amazing facilities it provides throughout campus and opportunities provided. The course also looks a facilitation practice which I feel is a good skill to have when being a professional dancer.

Project overview

Final Year Dance Program

My independent project was part of the final year module DA3360 Facilitation undergraduate course BA (Hons) Dance Performance and Teaching, at The University of Central Lancashire (UClan). 

The focus of this assignment was to undertake independent research to explore and contextualise a personal area of interest and link this to dance facilitation. The research found in my chosen field of inquiry was then used to plan, facilitate and evaluate a series of dance workshops over four weeks starting February 2024. 

The aim of my research question was ‘How does my facilitation support mental wellbeing within young dancers studying BTEC dance?’. Additionally, how I can develop my skills as a facilitator by exploring new teaching strategies to the group whilst physically seeing progression of movement and confidence with the dance students each week. 

This project intended to support not only the student's development but my facilitation development for future jobs after university. This project included both book based, and practical research done through new findings and discoveries within my movement and facilitation.
