Course description

The work-study MA Dance Teacher Programme is designed for professional dancers and dance teachers who want to enhance their teaching skills. This program is ideal for those aiming to become ballet masters, rehearsal directors, or educators in professional training institutions, community dance settings, or dance companies and theatres. For those without a professional dance background, the specialisation "Dance Teacher for Community Dance" is available, provided they demonstrate equivalent aptitude. Students can choose to focus on Ballet or Contemporary/Modern Dance and specialise as a Ballet Master/Rehearsal Director, Dance Teacher in professional training, or in Community Dance. The Master Dance Teacher course is interdisciplinary, covering subjects such as dance pedagogy, methodology and didactics, dance history, dance medicine, psychology, teaching practice, rehearsal assistance, improvisation, Laban, and composition. This program fosters an inclusive and supportive environment, ensuring that all students, regardless of their background, can develop their skills and achieve their professional goals.
