Our department's student satisfaction rating is one of the best in the UK at 94% (NSS, 2013), with academics who are renowned experts in their fields. It is this level of excellence and pioneering approach to the subject of dance that led us to develop the MA Professional Practice in Dance Technique Pedagogy, the first course of its kind in the UK.
Designed to allow you to explore your teaching practice in depth, our course takes dance professionals in the early, middle or later stages of their career and harnesses their experience so that they can evolve their teaching practice with expert guidance from some of the UK's leading dance academics and practitioners.
Developed in collaboration with The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD), our course begins by reflecting on your prior learning before supporting you to explore a chosen area of dance technique teaching in more depth leading to the development of a major work-based learning project. Delivered part-time through distance learning, we ensure that you are able to develop as a practitioner and maintain your work commitments while you study.
