Course content

The MA Dance: Performance focuses on developing your technical skills and artistic voice to enable you to navigate and shape the changing professional landscapes and contexts for dance performance.

Across contemporary cultural forms, dance artists contribute to a wide range of collaborative and interdisciplinary processes, using different media and modes of audience engagement. To support this, they need to develop and value their artistic agency and professional confidence in negotiating freelance portfolio careers. Throughout this course you will build up a reflective portfolio of performance experiences in order to investigate, apply and evaluate the various skills, networks and frameworks that will optimise your professional development and give you the foundations for a sustainable career as a dance performer.
