Course Summary

Overview

In this new programme, you will explore the relationships between dance and society.

Engaging in rich discussions with an international dance community, you will examine dance, dancers, and dancing through sociological and political lenses. You will be introduced to a range of concerns about dance, dancing, and performance: from the body in society, to issues of representation, and relations of power.

You will have the opportunity to collaborate with experts in the field of dance in our supportive teaching community and with students from all over the world. Our holistic teaching approach will help you gain a strong foundation in understanding of the political and sociological implications for how dance functions in society. You will also gain in-depth knowledge of dance and the dancer as a social and political construct. This programme also provides you with an opportunity to reflect upon your experiences and develop creative ideas to gain a critical perspective in practice and theory.

The school is home to the internationally recognised Centre for Dance Research, which foregrounds the research of dance as cultural and artistic expression in theatre performances 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

After this course, graduates may become community dance practitioners, produce and curate arts projects and events, lead in education and outreach programs for dance, become teachers or continue studying at MPhil or PhD level. You will also gain PGCert and PGDip awards in this course.

Modules

This module sits at the heart of the Roehampton Postgraduate Dance provision. It is designed to investigate ideas and principles that underpin research practices, and to give students the opportunity to apply and test these principles through their own research and/or practice.
