Master of Community Dance

The Master of Community Dance activates the role of dance in interrogating local and international societal concerns. As identified by UNESCO, such concerns may include sustainability, cultural diversity, equity, and peace. You’ll develop and sustain critically driven research that you find personally and professionally challenging and stimulating. You will gain an in-depth understanding of the principles, concepts, and ideas that define community dance theory and practice. Along with advanced specialist knowledge of community dance, you will gain skills that will equip you for employment, global citizenship and community involvement.
