  • Overview

    Rationale and Purpose of the Module: 
    To provide the opportunity for students to engage with range of approaches to the study and practice of dance and voice training techniques in order that they can develop good understanding and foundation for their own practice. The development of a broad base of performance skills together with an understanding of their historical origins will further empower the students in professional performance based contexts.

    Syllabus: 
    Students will be required to specialise in voice or dance, and through regular technique classes and workshops students will continue to study and practice the basic technical principles of both western contemporary and world dance and voice traditions; students will study the historical contexts and theoretical frameworks that underpin these techniques and traditions.
