STUDING AT THE CSDA (Higher Dance Conservatoire of Alicante)

We offer First Cycle of (BA).
The development of each specialty and /or option will be carried out according to a specific style. The Dance Degree offered by our Conservatoire consists in Dance Pedagogy. It also includes different options, allowing students to specialize their professional skills that meet the needs of the current employment areas and profiles of the current, emerging, changing and future circumstances. Style is defined as a physical training technique whereby the learner chooses between the disciplines listed below:
You can currently study the specialty of Dance Pedagogy within the Dance Degree. There is a new syllabus which is being progressively introduced.
We operate the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) which enables all exchange students to achieve the same graded credits they would get at their home institutions, under satisfactory completion of all requirements of the subject.
In order to apply, you should first contact the Erasmus coordinator at your Home Institution. S/he will tell you if your conservatory has a Bilateral or Inter-Institutional Agreement with ours. Though even if there was no partnership, you may still apply, and if your application is successful, we will then proceed to sign a new agreement with your institution.
