A primary focus of the programme is to offer a series of learning and teaching scenarios which support students to develop as innovative, independent choreographers. Students are encouraged to take initiatives to review their current practice, and to engage in critical dialogue with their work from a variety of perspectives. The modules two of which are intensives, also support the student to review and redefine their individual fields of artistic interest. Two of the modules offered in the taught component provide opportunities for collaborative exchanges with other artistic practice and encourage a reflexive attitude through collaborative encounters with other artists and art forms.

The MA Project module is the culmination of study offers a period of sustained independent enquiry and critical engagement.
