MA Choreography and Professional Practice - University of ChichesterProfessional Development
1 September - 2 NovemberWe are embarking on delivering on our first MA postgraduate qualification. The MA Choreography and Professional Practice course starts at the University of Chichester in September 2014. The programme has been designed and will be delivered by University of Chichester in partnership with South East Dance, enabling students to engage with us as a national dance development organisation and access a wide range of events, expertise, networking and professional development opportunities delivered both on and off campus.
The practice-based course explores choreographic methods and approaches and encourages students to position themselves as artists within the U.K and European contemporary dance scene. The course includes compulsory modules: Choreographic Practices, Artist as Producer and Dissertation all of which can be practically based allowing you to explore choreographic ideas and interests through the planning, making and performing of new dance work. Additional, optional modules include: Dance Technique, Writing for Performance, New Media and Performance Practices.
