Sophie Briffa

Student – BA (Hons) Dance Education

Having initially graduated from the CBTS programme and started teaching, I realised my drive and desire to learn more made me consider furthering my studies in dance education, so I enrolled on the BA Dance Education programme.

The part-time distance learning structure allows me the flexibility to continue pursuing my dance studies whilst continuing my postgraduate studies in science as well as my scientific career and the programme has offered me valuable knowledge and skills for my teaching career. My greatest challenge has been the self-discipline required to wake up early to study before the start of my day!

I now run a dance school in Birmingham and having gained more insight into the different aspects of dance and dance education, I hope to effectively put my skills and knowledge into practice. My ultimate goal is to offer the best guidance for future dancers wanting to dance well and enjoy the experience.
