Dance Performance MA
1 Year  Full- Time


The MA in Dance Performance is a one-year, full-time postgraduate programme. It is unique in that it facilitates two independent streams of dance, Irish Traditional Dance and Contemporary Dance. Although independent, interactivity between these two dance genres is facilitated in the form of shared workshops, seminars and electives. The programme offers advanced tuition in both forms of dance and is designed to cater for the creative and artistic needs of contemporary and Irish traditional dancers. Objectives The programme provides a learning environment for advanced performance in either Irish Traditional Dance and Contemporary Dance; it explores aspects of repertoire and style within each of the two performance genres and it facilitates interactivity through the elective system with other related areas of study.
