Dance Science

Dance Science is a fast-growing area of research and study; it aims to investigate the quantitative and qualitative aspects of dance training and performance, combining a range of scientific disciplines into a flexible working practice for dancers, choreographers and dance teachers.

By recognising the dancer as an artistic athlete, Dance Science researchers strive to:

  • optimise the dancer's potential as an elite performer through areas such as physiology, psychology, nutrition, and biomechanics; and
  • examine the impact of dance on areas of health and well-being among other populations.


Laban is known internationally as a leader in Dance Science and was the first institution in the world to offer an MSc in Dance Science in 2003.
