MFA Dance Performance (Taught)

Course summary

These programmes are designed to guide you in your journey to becoming an elite performer as you develop the advanced technique, performance and creative skills of exceptional dancers. As a student you will become a performer in our new dance company TLDC, and be immersed in an unique and supportive learning environment which resembles, and prepares you for, a professional company context. Specially commissioned national and international artists will lead you through intensive creative processes devising new works and introduce you to range of choreographic styles and working approaches. Both the MA and the MFA programme offers the opportunity to critically reflect on your practice as a performer, research and explore the role of the performer in the artistic process, and to deepen your understanding of both the artistic and technical complexities inherent in dance performance.
