November Update: MA in Dance Research for Professional Practitioners
28th November 2022
November 2022 saw the first Final Project dissertation submissions for the MA in Dance Research for Professional Practitioners. With titles ranging from ‘Ballet Futures for Today’s Dancing Child’ to ‘Families who Dance Together: The use of props as affordances within a dance session for families in a community setting’ and performance work exploring the ‘State of Flow’ and ‘The Women’s Wine’ the diverse research areas have led students to embark on journey of personal discovery and to establish and develop significant connections within the wider dance research field.
The programme is now in its third year and the regular Seminar Series for students welcomes a range of guest lectures from both academic and industry settings, including Brown University (USA) People Dancing, and Liverpool Hope University.
Current students and alumni continue their work in choreography, teaching and performance projects including Liam Francis, who will be appearing at the Royal Opera House with Ben Duke’s Lost Dog Dance this December, and Chevon Edwards’ film ‘One Night’ receiving various nominations and awards at international film festivals.
Applications for the next Academic Year will open in March 2023.
