The Master of Dance provides opportunities for suitably qualified candidates to further develop their potential for artistic leadership and to enrich their professional practice. The structure and content of the course places a distinctive focus on the integration of performance skills and choreographic practice (both live and screen based), facilitating a holistic physical sensibility underpinned by a commitment to artistic excellence, collaboration and interdisciplinary practice.
The Master of Dance will provide an enhanced level of sophisticated training, creativity and artistry commensurate with that required in the field and is suited to dancers, performers, improvisers, dance-makers, choreographers and body-based practitioners. The course will equip students with a high level of professional skill and expertise as a multi-dimensional dance artist, maintaining connections with other VCA disciplines (directing, design, music, Film/TV) via cross-disciplinary subjects and collaborative projects and through a range of encounters with practising artists and organisations.
The degree offers a balance of intensive, practical, project and laboratory based workshops, seminars, master classes and theoretical subjects across three semesters culminating in the realisation of a range of independent practice-led projects.
