MA Choreography - Course Outline
The course is aimed at emerging choreographers and professional dancers with a choreographic portfolio. This unique opportunity provides the intellectual and cultural framework to develop an understanding of choreography focussed on exploring and investigating choreographic practice.
Students completing the MA will extend their choreographic profile and professional skills through studio based work, independent research, taught elements, public performance and mentor support. The focus will be on ballet choreography, although other movement techniques such as contemporary dance and the relationship to other art forms can be explored.
As a feature of the programme, MA participants may have the opportunity to have their work toured nationally in professional theatres, working collaboratively with dancers, composers, designers and theatre professionals as part of the creative process.
The course runs for three or four terms and provides scope for individuals to extend their choreographic profile and professional skills.
