About

The Dance Anthropology programme at the University of Roehampton explores the place of dance in society from the perspectives of those involved as dancers, dance makers, teachers and audience members. By studying these perspectives, you will learn how different people around the world understand dance and how dance influences their value systems.

Overview

The Dance Anthropology programme at the University of Roehampton investigates dance from a non-Eurocentric perspective, placing the practices and values of the dancers into sociocultural and comparative understanding. At the heart of the programme is a focus upon ethnographic perspectives in dance to gain firsthand experience of different cultural approaches to dance practice. You will interpret your findings from the field in light of contemporary debates in dance anthropology.

The course is of particular interest to those who wish to study non-Western, folk, social or ritual dance practices, but the approach can be applied to ballet or Western theatre dance, too. This course provides a way to contextualise dance practice and deepen your understanding of dance and specific practices that helps define our humanity.

Careers

Graduates' career options are broadened to include roles such as a community dance practitioner, producer and curator of arts projects, teacher, or to continue into further study as an MPhil or PhD student.
