Course content

Choreomundus is an Erasmus Mundus programme that investigates dance and other movement systems (ritual practices, martial arts, games and physical theatre) as intangible cultural heritage. To apply, please visit the website.

It is offered by a consortium of four universities (in Norway, France, Hungary and the UK) recognised for their leadership in the development of innovative curricula for the analysis of dance. Founded by Professors Egil Bakka, Georgiana Wierre-Gore, László Felföldi, and the late Professor Andrée Grau, the Choreomundus programme will help you make sense of intangible heritage within the postcolonial, culturally diverse world of the 21st century. Delivered in connection with the local groundbreaking Masters in ethnochoreology/dance anthropology in each of the four universities, this unique two-year course will engender an appreciation of dance that is comparative, crosscultural, applied and embodied.

The universities that participate in this programme are: Université Clermont Auvergne (UCA), Clermont-Ferrand, France, as the coordinating institution; the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim (NTNU); the University of Szeged, Hungary; and the University of Roehampton.

Roehampton's Dance Department is home to the internationally recognised Centre for Dance Research, which foregrounds the research of dance as cultural and artistic expression beyond, and including, theatre performance. 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, an excellent new library and a state-of-the-art theatre for dance students.
