MA/MFA Dance Leadership & Community Practice

This programme supports a career as a creative dance teacher/leader/facilitator, developing your knowledge, confidence and entrepreneurial skills to make a difference in people’s lives through creativity and dance.

Dance is a powerful tool to build relationships within communities, enable a creative outlet, support people’s wellbeing, rehabilitation and enjoyment of life. Learning creative dance practice, a socially engaged and inclusive pedagogy of relational ethics and care, and project management, will facilitate you with the practical knowledge and skills to create opportunities for dance to thrive.

A range of expert tutors and visiting professional artists in the field provide exemplars and inspiration alongside a heart centred pedagogy. Experience of assisting top London organisations such as Trinity Laban Participation and Public Engagement provides real world experience of working with people with very different needs and is invaluable for students studying to enter the community dance field. This programme will support your understanding of dance as a socially relevant, creative, applied, and inclusive practice, and will springboard your career in dance and the arts sector.

The programme is on-site at Trinity Laban, so all students benefit from being part of the Trinity Laban Postgrad community of artists. With state-of-the-art dance facilities and extra-curricular opportunities such as practical technique classes, cross programme collaborative projects and a multitude of dance and music performances.

Students are supported to find their own artistic and pedagogic identity and set their own goals within a positive and nurturing environment. Study accumulates in a self-selected area of practical research where you can develop individual areas of interest and experience, leading to a MA or MFA qualification.
