Course Summary

Overview

As an emerging or experienced choreographer, this MFA course will help you refine your artistic practice by advancing your creative, technical and performance skills. The programme includes technique classes, choreography workshops, laboratory sessions, dialogue, writing and reflection. You will be encouraged to experiment and take risks in a series of self-directed choreographic projects that help you develop a portfolio of work.

You will be supported by the mentorship and teaching of experienced staff in our modern studios and well-equipped performance theatre. Study with highly experienced in-house and visiting artists and tutors alongside a creative community of peers.

The school is home to the internationally recognised Centre for Dance Research, which foregrounds the research of dance as cultural and artistic expression as theatre performance and beyond. Through seminars, forums and conferences involving staff and international invited guests, the Centre supports a compelling research culture.

We also have excellent links with dance companies and creative organisations. In easy reach of London's vibrant dance scene, the campus has superb studios and a state-of-the-art theatre for dance students.

Career Options

Graduates from this programme can be found working as independent artists in London, Berlin and New York; presenting their work at a number of venues in London and at the Edinburgh and Stockholm Fringe Festivals; teaching in higher education in the UK and abroad; and curating programmes and events for dance artists across Europe.

Modules

This module is located in the practical classes which are offered to the BA3 Performance and Repertory students. Students are free to choose a personal portfolio of classes within this provision. The approach and demands of each class will vary according to the interests and expertise of each tutor. At the end of the module, the students present a performance of their practice related to one of the approaches studied during the year. This can be a solo or collaborative presentation.
