Masters degrees in Choreography equip postgraduates with advanced skills to devise on create choreographed dance performances for stage shows and other purposes.
Courses range from taught MA and practise-based MFA degrees, to research-based MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Dance or Performance Studies.
Masters in this field are extremely varied, and you may specialise in a variety of ways depending on your experience and career goals. Courses are usually predominantly practise-based, with practical training often culminating in an independent research project.
You will explore a range of techniques for performance, drawing ideas from contemporary creative practices, as well has historical influences and cultural variations. A variety of concepts and propositions within the choreographic field are examined, including body awareness and somatic practices.
Different settings for choreographed performance – from the studio and the theatre, to galleries, museums and other public spaces – are also analysed in relation to different performance types.
Traditional careers include working as a choreographer either independently or as part of a specific dance company. You might also choose to explore work in therapeutic practices, such as dance psychotherapy and physiotherapy.
