Your study will provide you with the opportunity to apply your experience in the studios to a diverse range of performance spaces such as community-based contexts, choreographic projects, and professional theatres. Through practical classes you'll develop a wide range of dance performance techniques drawn from the work of world renowned choreographers and dance theorists.
