MA Choreography - Course Outline
Central School of Ballet is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for emerging choreographers and professional dancers based within professional dance companies.
This is an invitation for interested choreographers to engage in professional development, either by enrolling onto the MA Choreography programme in January 2017, or by attending short courses over the period of the academic year.
The aim is to provide a framework to develop choreographic practice through research, studio-based exploration, mentoring and opportunities to stage work.
The MA Choreography, validated by the University of Kent, has been running for five years. With a unique specialism in ballet, it provides opportunities to extend and develop professional practice and gain degree status accreditation.
The course spans over four terms, with the flexibility to combine study alongside current dance company employment. Choreographers with an existing choreographic profile are encouraged to apply.
The short courses, usually one day or half a day in length, will run from January over the year and can be seen as a career development opportunity, or a route towards application for the MA in future years. There is the potential to be able apply for funding towards MA fees.
For more information please contact email@example.com and to apply send a CV and a statement of interest by 17 October 2016. Interviews are scheduled to take place during the week of 24 October 2016.

It has been a precious and focused opportunity and I look forward to using this experience as a catalyst to drive my work in the future."
