Dance & Creative Enterprise – MA

The MA in Dance & Creative Enterprise enables dance graduates and professionals at varying stages of their careers to evolve and advance their artistic practice, whilst gaining further understanding of its value as a creative enterprise.

At NSCD we believe dance artists in the 21st Century need to understand  the ‘business’ of dance.

The programme enables dance graduates and professionals to gain a broader perspective on the arts sector, realise their ideas and find a potential market for their work. This course will encourage further development as a creative artist through its use of individual and collaborative approaches to arts practice and entrepreneurship. The MA explores artistic principles and theoretical concepts closely related to the art form, as well as the practices of project management, funding within the arts, audience engagement, publicity and marketing (including digital technologies). Alongside the creation and performance of work during the course, which can be individually led, focus will be given to developing academic and entrepreneurial skills by framing work as a collective, with guidance from some of the UK’s leading dance academics and practitioners, in both the art and business of dance.
