The master’s degree programme in dance performance offers their students an opportunity to develop their artistic practices as dancers and performers in a diverse educational community. The education is build on an expanded understanding of the role of a dance artist and is in active relation to the current issues in the field.

The studies broaden the student’s understanding of the history, theory and practices of dance art and provides a platform for artistic experimenting, deepening one’s own performance practices and creative collaboration with students in other degree programs. Through optional studies and personal study planning, the studies provide an opportunity to delve into self-interesting working methods, roles and traditions.
