Course content

The MA Dance: Creative Dance Education course explores the creative and professional skills needed for dance teachers, educators and youth dance leaders. The design of the programme is built around the shape of a PGCE Dance: theoretical modules in dance pedagogy and two long teaching placements.

It explores the wider educational needs and remits for dance teachers beyond secondary schools: further education colleges, youth dance groups, dance schools and a range of community dance settings.
