  • Overview

    Rationale and Purpose of the Module: 
    In this module students will develop the ability to select and design a programme which shows an understanding of technique principles and practices and their application to a specific context will prepare student to develop an informed and intelligent method to sustain their on-going and evolving practice. This will support students to develop a sustainable practice in professional performance based contexts. Students in this module will look to other, less mainstream performance practices available for examination.

    Syllabus: 
    Students will be required to specialise in voice or dance, and through regular technique classes and workshops they will continue to study and practice the basic technical principles of both western and world dance and voice traditions, broadening their stylistic experience. They will engage further study methods of analysing movement and sound and methods of reflective practice in order to develop critical awareness of technique training. Students will also complement their reading/singing skills through the learning of musical analytical and other notational systems. Students will also complement their choreographic skills through analytical approaches to movement composition.
