An Innovative new MA to inspire Dance Practitioners.
Designed to embrace a wide range of interests, this postgraduate course offers bespoke learning and professional opportunities based on students’ individual practice.
The programme is designed to apply practice-led enquiry as a principal mode of investigation, whilst incorporating the application of established research in such a way as to integrate, enhance and advance students’ current embodied practices/previous experience as professional practitioners. The practice of dancers, education practitioners, and other related modes of dance practice is at the heart of this programme, which aims to guide students in deepening their understanding of their discipline and advance professional knowledge, and with it rigorous research processes that address the practical, artistic, cultural, social and political implications of dance in the sector.
The course is offered on a part-time basis in order to accommodate professional working schedules and allow for the gradual deepening of dance related practices. The programme is designed to be flexible and meet the needs of students who may be learning whilst working. Students can choose from a mixture of in-person and online delivery as best suits their needs.
It will include a combination of taught modules, supervised project work and an independent research project, allowing students to develop their analytic, critical and research skills as well as their professional work.
Applications open soon for October 2020 entry. If you are interested in finding out more, please get in touch to start a conversation.
This course is subject to validation by the University of Kent.
