Future of Dance and Drama Courses at Belfast Metropolitan College – Joint Statement from Dance Resource Base and TheatreNI


TheatreNI and Dance Resource Base, the leading representative bodies for Performing Arts in Northern Ireland, are dismayed to hear of the decision by Belfast Metropolitan College to close its Performing Arts courses currently offered at the Tower Street campus. We are concerned that this closure will impact on the future of performing arts provision. In addition to increasing the number of students having to leave Northern Ireland to receive quality arts training.
