Overview

The Dance Philosophy and History programme at the University of Roehampton offers an in-depth, critical exploration of concepts, assumptions and theories underlying dance practice. You will gain an understanding of dance in the context of philosophy and history. You will learn to debate issues of concern within dance and movement analysis with critical insight. 

You will also develop your critical thinking on dance practices and issues from philosophical and historical perspectives. The programme incorporates Anglo-American Analytic as well as Continental schools of Philosophy; and Realist-Empiricist as well as Poststructuralist approaches to History.

The Department is home to the internationally-recognised Centre for Dance Research, which foregrounds the research of dance as cultural and artistic expression as theatre performance and beyond. Through seminars, forums and conferences involving staff and international invited guests, the Centre supports a compelling research culture.
