Brief course description

Choreographic Studies part 3 focuses on the creative work surrounding dance. This course will give the students insight into and experience of how choreographic processes create an artistic expression and what co-creative contribution the practitioner can give.

Overview of the course:

  • improvisation.
  • choreographic composition.

Improvisation focuses on the creative work surrounding dance and will 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 gives importance to each student's individual, creative development.

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

By employing different work methods, the course will develop the students' ability to interact jointly to contribute to the students experience as co-creators in choreographic work.

The course’s learning outcomes

On completing the course, the student should:

  • be able to present a personal expression in dance through creative work, in cooperation with others.
  • master the basic improvisation techniques.
  • be able to work independently with dance in creative processes.
  • be able to develop their own movement material, compose and structure this into choreography (solo) according to a given assignment and under guidance.

Teaching and learning methods

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

Classes will be given to groups of varying size and relate to the progress being made, by each group relative to the course learning objectives and according to each group's composition.

Composition and improvisation are taught separately.

The coursework requirements are:

  • mandatory attendance and participation in classes.
  • submission of all assignments.


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

During the course, the students work and development will be assessed in relation to the course's learning objectives. The course will be assessed by the course teacher in consultation with the programme coordinator.

The course is assessed by the awarding of either a pass or a fail grade.
