Dance Practices


Course Description

Whether you are an emerging artist or an established performer, this fabulous new programme enables you to enhance your practice and improve your employability.

-A highly flexible programme enabling emerging artists and established professionals to engage in critical debate and dialogue
-Benefit from a programme that links theory, work-based practice and artistic/educational policies, bringing together professional practice and academic studies
-Carry out research appropriate to your area of expertise or explore another sector which interests you
-Enjoy a combination of on-campus and distance learning

The course has been designed to meet the demands of today’s dance industry, where your research and critical dialogue as a dance artist sit at the heart of the professional learning experience.
The MA Dance Practices course reflects the changing nature of the dance industry. There is now much more emphasis on practice-based collaboration, and advances in technology, in particular, mean that artists need to be open to new approaches to dance.

You will carry out a piece of in-depth research and develop skills to work largely independently with support from a supervisor. The programme has strong links with collaborative arts, community and educational partnerships. You can choose to specialise within your own area of expertise, or diversify your research study into other areas of artistic practice.

The programme differs from many other Masters programmes by bringing together postgraduate student artists from a range of sectors in the dance industry to enhance educational progress. The mix of professionals, from the sector, ensures a dynamic learning environment. By sharing your professional experiences, you will learn from each other as well as your tutors.

You can study full or part time via discreet intense learning blocks (likely to take place in early September, December, April and June/July/August). This mode of delivery enables you to apply what you learn in the on-campus lectures to professional contexts. There are appropriate opportunities for distance learning, individual support mechanisms and online learning platforms, enabling you, as a student, to draw from your own working practices.

You may call on your experience as a creative artist/facilitator or have the opportunity to work alongside one of our collaborative partnerships.
