Brief course description

Choreographic Studies part 2 focuses on the work aspect involved in creating dance. The course will give the student an insight into, and experience of, how choreographic processes create an artistic expression and what co-creative contribution can be made.

Overview of the course:

  • improvisation
  • choreographic composition

Improvisation focuses on the creative work involved in dance and is designed to give students experience in experimenting with their own movement material. Through improvisation, students work on reacting spontaneously to a broad spectrum of kinetic, emotional and intellectual stimuli. The course emphasises the importance of each student's individual creative development.

Choreographic composition focuses on the different methods of processing, developing and structuring of movement material into an artistic form. Students will gain experience in techniques which give an insight into how ideas and movement themes are developed in the choreographic process.

Utilising different work methods, the course will develop students' ability to interact jointly with others and contribute to giving students experience as creative collaborators in choreographic work.

The course’s learning outcomes

On completing the course, the student should:

  • have a sound knowledge of basic improvisation techniques.
  • be able to work independently with the creative processes of dance.
  • have experience of choreographic composition.

Teaching and learning methods

The course consists of teacher-led lessons, coaching and independent study. Creative assignments, lectures and written work are also included.

Coursework requirements must have been met for the student to receive a final assessment in the course.
