Designing the costumes or set for dance performances is a highly specialised occupation. Most costume designers have a Higher National Diploma (HND), degree or postgraduate qualification in a relevant subject such as costume design, fashion, theatre, design, art and design or performing arts. See www.ucas.ac.uk to find art and design foundation courses. It is crucial to find practical work experience and develop a good portfolio of work.
