Today, it is becoming critically important to the holistic nature and global development of all Dance performance and training that there are professionals within dance science and education that are appropriately resourced, challenged and inspired to take on their own frontiers and develop new ones.
The principal aim of this Master's programme is to provide a foundation in science that can underpin all forms of dance training and educate the development of dance as an art form. The programme has been carefully developed to focus on the scientific that is directly relevant to the process and practices involved in optimising:
Throughout the programme both theoretical and practical work are combined to promote learning and understanding of the key concepts required to become an effective dance scientist.
