The Master of Dance places a distinctive focus on the integration of performance skills and choreographic practice, both live and screen based, facilitating a holistic physical sensibility underpinned by a commitment to artistic excellence, collaboration and interdisciplinary practice.
Through laboratory-based workshops, seminars, master classes and theoretical subjects, the 18-month postgraduate degree offers a balance of intensive and practical training across three semesters culminating in the realisation of a range of independent, practice-led projects.
It equips you with a high level of professional skill and expertise as a multi-dimensional dance artist, and provides opportunities for connections with other VCA disciplines via cross-disciplinary subjects, collaborative projects and through a range of encounters with practising artists and organisations.
The program welcomes applications from: dancers, performers, improvisers, dance-makers, choreographers and body-based practitioners.
