1 Year Full- Time
The MA in Ethnochoreology considers dance in its cultural context. By applying theoretical concepts developed in the Social Sciences and by testing these within the context of field research, Ethnochoreology provides an alternative approach to the study of Irish Traditional Dance, popular Dance and World Dance. This approach embraces Anthropology, Cultural Studies, Gender Studies, Area Studies and Education in addition to other relevant areas in Dance Studies.
The aim of the course is to provide a thorough grounding in the theory of, and methods in, ethnochoreology and to consider dance within its academic framework. It provides an invaluable foundation for those wishing to pursue dance research to doctoral level.
