Dance at UEL
The Dance Master's programme benefits from the inclusion of a wide range of visiting practitioners - both dancers and choreographers. In addition to giving 'masterclasses', these practitioners deliver some of the modules on the programme. Each year, different dance companies and artists act as mentors for the Choreographic Methods module taking students through the whole process of putting a choreographing and performing work
The MA Dance is offered both full- and part-time. Teaching is usually in the evenings.
Students take one or two modules a semester and there is a dissertation project to be taken over the final semester.
MA Dance students can work in close collaboration other MA programmes in the Performing Arts field.
Teaching consists of a variety of methods including skills-based classes (technique and choreography) as well as analysis, workshops, seminars and lectures.
Each module on the MA is assessed through coursework components. These components typically consist of research work, presentations and performances.
Relevance to work/profession
Students get the chance to work with professionals in the field to build contact. All through the Dance MA students learn what is most important in the field of dance and performance theoretically, methodologically and choreographically in our current social, cultural and political climate.
The MA Dance combines theory, research and practice. The final dissertation module, therefore, consists of a combination of these, depending on the skills and future directions of each student.
