About

The Professional Practice, Dance Technique Pedagogy MA course at the Middlesex University has been developed especially to allow you to continue working, integrating your professional practice and expertise with academic learning.

Overview

Why study MA Professional Practice, Dance Technique Pedagogy at Middlesex University?

This unique Professional Practice, Dance Technique Pedagogy MA course at the Middlesex University combines critical reflection and individual pedagogic practice at one of the UK’s top Universities for dance practice and research. The first programme of its kind in the country, the MA Professional Practice Dance Technique Pedagogy epitomises our dedication to the future of dance and dance teachers as well as our pioneering approach in the field.

This course was developed in collaboration with The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) and caters for all genres of dance technique teaching. You begin by reflecting on prior learning before being supported to explore a chosen area of dance technique teaching in more depth that, in turn, leads to a major work-based learning project. Delivered part-time through distance learning, we ensure that you are able to develop as a practitioner and maintain your work commitments while you study.

  • You’ll have the opportunity to make a claim for academic credits against prior formal and informal learning. As a student you'll receive a free electronic textbook for every module
