DANCE

Dance can be described as a fluid art form. It is constantly changing, exposed to different cultural contexts, bodily histories and physical disciplines, as well as being influenced by political and social movements. This degree aims to explore dance as a living social practice and dynamic art form, considering how dance throughout both eastern and western cultures has been cultivated through traditional training practices as well as more contemporary cultural influences.

Dance at Liverpool Hope looks at the bodies, techniques, performances and histories that make up dance practice today both from an embedded perspective - as a source for developing material - and from a reflective position, combining both theoretical and practical approaches to learning. The dance team are all professional practitioners and active researchers whose specialist skills map into the diverse areas of site-specific choreography, multicultural dance and somatic practice.

During your studies, you will have the opportunity to work alongside professional visiting choreographers and dance artists, performing at our for public audiences as well as developing a consistent studio practice through one to one and group seminars and regular dance classes and workshops. Here at Liverpool Hope we actively encourage students to consider their art form as an ethical and embodied practice, where dance can reflect some of the social and cultural concerns of our day.
