Course summary

Summary

Develop your dance practice, teaching and leadership skills over two years with vibrant and supportive teachers.

As a dancer with an interest in expanding your skills, this practice-based programme will help you to investigate the potential of your studio practice and training in order to apply your dance practice as a creative and improvisational tool and as a practice-research which has the potential to influence culture and society.

The programme includes technique classes, choreography workshops, collaborative working, writing and reflection. You will be encouraged to develop and test new ideas and skills in dance ‘laboratory’ situations in order to research and practise notions of dance facilitation, dance teaching, dance leadership, dance intervention and dance-making in a variety of contexts. This unique practice-based programme promotes understanding of the notions of wellbeing and safe, healthy dance practice, and relates directly to social, political and cultural issues around embodiment, community and the environment.

This programme investigates the application of dance practice and knowledge in a wide and ambitious range of artistic, educational and community contexts, and, less conventionally, in galleries, museums and outdoor sites. You will be supported by the mentorship and teaching of experienced staff in our modern studios and have the opportunity to gain experience with in-house and visiting artists and tutors alongside a diverse community of peers.

Career prospects

The programme is specifically designed to appeal to students seeking a portfolio career which involves performing, teaching, choreographing, community dance practice and curational practice. Students who have a desire to apply their knowledge of Dance to improving communication, manifesting social change and advocating for the broad range of benefits of participating in Dance will be able to develop their ideas and projects as part of this programme.
