About the course

The MA Dance & Creative Enterprise (one year full-time/ two years part-time) gives dance makers space to further explore and define their artistic voice, while learning the relevant business skills needed to become successful independent artists today.

Students on the course develop their creative practice, place their ideas within cultural, artistic and theoretical frameworks, and receive expert tuition in digital marketing, project management and strategic fundraising. Multiple opportunities to present work means students are often able to put their interdisciplinary learning in to practice while studying.
