Dance Practices

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

Course modules

Modules include: Advanced research methods; work-based learning; individually negotiated project; applied professional creative practice; applied professional pedagogical practice; dissertation; advanced professional creative practice; advanced professional pedagogical practice.

Assessment methods

The programme will be assessed using a variety of methods including practical enquiry, work-related enquiry, essays, oral presentations, poster presentations, a viva voce, and, of course, your practice as research-biased dissertation.
