What you will learn

This course focuses on creating at least one choreography per term using the Tanztheater Improvisation approach of questioning and answering.
In addition to material given by your tutor, you get a chance to devise meaningful material yourself as an answer to a wide range of questions
that will help you to get from an idea to an actual sequence.
Throughout the course, we will also take time to work on other areas that are related to the expression of a state. These could include
partner work/ contact improvisation, dialogue, use of music and general composition.
We aim to perform at each dance event at Morley College and will potentially apply for external opportunities too.

By the end of the course you will be able to

  • Develop an initial idea into a dance sequence or action
  • Explore movement related elements through short excursions (contact impro, speech etc)
  • Learn material from others and work effectively together as a team
  • Perform with expression, precision and passion

Class format and activities

Study can include the use of digital resources such as film & photography, useful websites and connection with online communities of interest via social media to enhance your learning.
Dance study offers a range of benefits including being an enjoyable way to increase fitness whilst enhancing wellbeing. Dance practice at Morley can also serve to enhance skills relevant for employment by means of encouraging increased confidence, physical dexterity and concentration.
