The course offers training focused on practice and artistic experience, with a view to developing students' technical, creative and performing skills, with the purpose of leading them to individual autonomy, the ability to work in teams and the ability to perform with responsibility.
The idea is also to stimulate reflection and contextualization of artistic practice, on the basis of developing educational sensitivity and the ability to act positively in the community.
The study programme objectives include:
1 - Training interpreters/creators of Dance, with the theoretical and practical skills as well as techniques required by the professional artistic and contemporary fabric - creativity, autonomy, ability to analyze research and reasoning.
2 - Developing pedagogical and methodological skills necessary for creating artistic awareness projects with non-professional communities, young audiences and in a school setting.
In this 1st cycle, the dominant professional profile is that of interpreter/creator as understood in contemporary terms: a 'performer' with artistic independent, technical and creative expertise in terms of improvisation and choreographic composition that is, at the same time, holder of theoretical, research and reasoning skills. The idea is also to get the training process to be implemented with the greatest possible closeness to the professional field.
The trainee of this 1st cycle will also acquire the necessary skills to develop artistic awareness projects in non-professional contexts (for young people, in a school setting, or otherwise), and, therefore, we intend to maintain and deepen the relations of cooperation that we have with the schools offering classes in grades 1 to 4 in our geographical area.
The study programme is based on three major scientific areas which, among themselves, combine knowledge and skills leading to autonomy and professional success, motivating students to learn and to remain constantly updated.
Scientific Project Area
The aims are to develop skills in autonomy, initiative and achievement, as well as the ability to promote interaction with the professional arts environment and with the community, through concrete projects.
It is intended that the student may have concrete experiences with implementing projects, both in the artistic domain and in the educational or community realm. To such an end, students must know and master all its stages, from creating and reasoning to production, implementation and dissemination, using contemporary technical and technological means.
