University of Roehampton

Course Introduction

Develop your choreographic identity over two full years as part of a creative, collaborative and supportive environment.

As an emerging or experienced choreographer, this course will help you refine your artistic practice by advancing your creative, technical and performance skills. The programme includes technique classes, choreography workshops, laboratory sessions, dialogue, writing and reflection. You will be encouraged to experiment and take risks in a series of self'directed choreographic projects that help you develop a portfolio of work.

You will be supported by the mentorship and teaching of experienced staff in our modern studios and well'equipped performance theatre. Study with highly experienced in'house and visiting artists and tutors alongside a creative community of peers.

The Department is home to the internationally'recognised Centre for Dance Research, which foregrounds the research of dance as cultural and artistic expression beyond, and including, theatre performance. Through seminars, forums and conferences involving staff and international invited guests, the Centre supports a compelling research culture.

We also have excellent links with dance companies and creative organisations. In easy reach of London’s vibrant dance scene, the campus has superb studios and a state'of'the'art theatre for dance students.
