Course content

Practice is at the heart of the MA Choreography programme at
Lincoln. This studio-based programme focuses on examining, exploring and performing choreographic strategies relevant to your chosen field.

Throughout this Master’s programme you will explore the theoretical
underpinning of your practice. You will be guided through a wealth of
contemporary literature in the field of dance, choreography, philosophy and performance, and engage in critical debate about your own and others’ practice.

You will benefit from working closely with academics who have extensive professional experience and from our programme of lectures and seminars from visiting artists. Residential trips ensure you encounter and engage with the widest possible range of choreographic practice and discussion.

During the programme, you will be encouraged to present your work at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and other arts festivals. The School’s close links with industry mean you are introduced to professional dance agencies as a means of establishing your work as a choreographer.
