Masters degrees in Ballet offer advanced training in the history, influences and techniques of Ballet dancing, including pointe, and choreography such as solo, pas de deux and repertory theatre.
Taught MA courses are typical for the field, with some being more research-intensive than others. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree, such as Dance or Performance studies.
Why study a Masters in Ballet?
Depending on your interests, you may choose a more theoretical or vocational approach to studies in Ballet. Typically, courses will cover both approaches, whereby you will analyse cultural and historical concepts through investigations of literature and performance techniques.
You will deepen your creative process through choreographic methodologies and artistic approaches, curating a portfolio of work through accumulative research projects. This will often involve some groupwork activities alongside individual ventures.
As well as performance, consideration is also given to the economic viability of the industry across the globe. This includes an analysis of the structure and governance of various resident companies, and the management of individual performers.
Your expertise would make you viable to work with high-end Ballet companies both locally and internationally, either as a performer, teacher, choreographer or manager.
