About

Central has a long-standing and well recognised reputation for the dissemination of actor movement disciplines within the British theatre scene; these pioneering courses are the first of their kind in Europe. The Movement - Directing and Teaching program is offered at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.

Overview

The MA/MFA Movement - Directing and Teaching program at Central: 

  • Is a specialist, vocational course for performance and movement practitioners
  • Develops your expertise in movement teaching and movement directing of the actor 
  • Is taught by current professionals in their field of movement pedagogy, movement direction and movement research

Movement training at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama

Tradition, experience, eclecticism and innovation epitomise Central’s understanding of movement training for the theatre and these unique courses have been created in that spirit. You will belong to the fine history of movement at Central from Litz Pisk to the present.

Who is the course suitable for?

You may be an actor or dancer who wants to diversify your skills and knowledge, you may work with actors (a dance or movement teacher, or a theatre director with a movement history), or be a practitioner from an allied field of sport/holistic practice, wanting to enhance your understanding of practical/theoretical interfaces regarding movement in contemporary performance.

Opportunities on the course

You will be offered specialist, vocational teaching in the field of movement for actors, production practice for movement directors and bespoke movement placements at Central and in other professional theatre settings, such as other conservatoires or theatre, opera, or film organisations (both in Britain and internationally).

You will have the opportunity for the development of your individual movement specialisms and apply them to the work of actors. The courses provide a rich and diverse landscape within which to address movement practices in relation to a wide range of established theatre processes and innovations in the field.
