Study content

The Master of Dance provides you with an in-depth analysis of the art of dancing, choreographies, and rhythmic movements. You learn how to invent, dance, and teach choreographies. Human physiology, body movements, composition and improvisation as well as ethics and aesthetics each play a crucial role in your curriculum. Throughout your studies, you will cope with traditional, folklore, Latin or ballroom dancing as well as contemporary genres.

Apart from the actual art and sport of dancing, you acquire a deeper understanding for academic research in the field, too. Therefore, the Master of Dance commonly takes two years for completion. It entitles you a Master of Arts.
