"As an analytical tool for observing, creating, performing and directing performance, choreological studies enables our students to evaluate their practice. It provides them with the means to develop and enhance their practice as well as facilitating integration of theory and practice as studio-based scholarship."
Rosemary Brandt, Year 1 Coordinator for Undergraduate Studies and Senior Lecturer in Choreological Studies
The Specialist Diploma: Choreological Studies: Contemporary Developments in Rudolf Laban's Principles and Practice is a vocational course to support existing and emergent artists and educators working in the movement industries in achieving competency in the practical exploration, experimentation and application of Choreological Studies.
The Specialist Diploma: Choreological Studies Contemporary Developments in Rudolf Laban's Principles and Practice is available through part-time study over three years and is structured into three modules. One module is undertaken each year and involves both taught sessions and independent study. Each year starts with an intensive week followed by study time and then a further intensive week.
Each module of study will culminate with assessed assignments before the commencement of the next module. This pattern of study over three years allows you to enter the course in any one year of the three-year cycle.
