Why study MA Professional Practice, Dance Technique Pedagogy at Middlesex University?

This unique MA combines critical reflection and individual pedagogic practice at one of the UK’s top Universities for dance practice and research.

This course was developed in collaboration with The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) and caters for all genres of dance technique teaching. You begin by reflecting on prior learning before being supported to explore a chosen area of dance technique teaching in more depth that, in turn, leads to a major work-based learning project. Delivered part-time through distance learning, we ensure that you are able to develop as a practitioner and maintain your work commitments while you study.
