Student Profile

Brad Cook, Graduated 2009, Movement Director, Coach and Instructor. Cook has taught at The Birmingham Conservatory and the Randolph College for Performing Arts.

As an international student, I knew that the MA Movement course would not only introduce me to the global history of movement work, but would also serve as a laboratory; a place where I could investigate and discover my individual approach as a movement practitioner, guided by instructors who work professionally in the industry.
