Our Masters is the ideal choice for increasing your knowledge of the body's possibilities and limitations, and investigating the science behind the artistry of dance.

Visit the website: http://www.trinitylaban.ac.uk/study/dance/postgraduate-programmes/msc-mfa-dance-science

Course detail

Our programmes explore interdisciplinary elements of dance science, such as physiology, biomechanics, psychology, motor learning and somatics. They explore the scientific issues underlying dance performance, technical training, and dancer health and injury prevention, looking at ways to optimise the body's performance, improve training techniques and enhance performer potential.

Format

Our carefully devised programmes examine qualitative and quantitative aspects of dance practice through a range of scientific disciplines. Application of theory to dance practice is essential at Trinity Laban, and Dance Science is no exception. Sessions frequently take place in the dance studio or involve practical and hands-on experience with testing equipment in the lab.

Dance Science can be undertaken as an MSc (one year) or, in a programme new this year, as an MFA (two years), with the second year dedicated to research. NB: Participants on the MSc programme can transfer to the MFA programme subject to application, and this should be discussed with the Programme Leader before completion of the 4 taught modules.

Year One (MSc and MFA)

The programmes examine the qualitative and quantitative aspects of dance practice, introducing elements from a range of scientific disciplines and applying them to a dance context.

The Secondary PGCE ‘Musicians in Education’ is a collaboration between Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and the University of Greenwich. It combines our expertise as one of the country’s leading conservatoires with a long tradition of teacher education at the University of Greenwich. The aim of the programme is simple: to prepare flexible and creative musicians who are confident working across a range of educational contexts. In addition to working in and qualifying for the formal school context, you will develop the skills to lead young people in making music in other settings too.

Visit the website: http://www.trinitylaban.ac.uk/study/music/pgce-musicians-in-education

Programme Content

Training is provided through collaboration between Trinity Laban (16 days) and the University of Greenwich (44 days), and is underpinned by significant placement learning opportunities within the schools sector (120 days, of which 10 are placements in alternative contexts with Trinity Laban's partners). These elements will enable you to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills required to teach in secondary schools, and you will be formally assessed against the national statutory requirements for Qualified Teacher Status.

In addition to practical teaching experience gained in two main schools, the partnership between Trinity Laban and the University enables you to gain training and teaching experience outside of classroom settings, for example in instrumental/vocal teaching for a Music Hub, school Musical Futures or community rock/pop projects, or leading orchestral outreach projects. As part of a collaborative team you will also design, coordinate and lead a two-day immersive creative composition project in a school.

In support of this work, you will be able to undertake instrumental/vocal lessons with Trinity Laban's outstanding teachers and will also be mentored by subject specialist teachers from whom you will receive daily feedback and guidance.

Progression Routes

By gaining Qualified Teacher Status you become a qualified teacher for both the maintained and independent sectors. The majority of our graduates become secondary music teachers. However, there are other opportunities, such as working for local authority music services in instrumental teaching or curriculum support. Some students use the skills they have developed to pursue a career as freelance workshop musicians.
