The Degree in Dance offered by the UCAM has given this discipline the basis and support of an official university degree with the highest level of excellence.

The Degree has inaugurated a new Dance Classroom within the facilities of the Faculty of Sport, in the La Noria complex, just a few metres from the Los Jerónimos Campus.
