MA Ethnochoreology


“As a graduate of the MA in Ethnochoreology, the programme has provided me with a solid theoretical grounding and superb practical experience in field research. I feel the programme has aided the development of both, my conceptual and practical practice and has presented me with the opportunity to delve deeper into the research and understanding of dance. I am delighted about being involved in a programme that is characterized by its willingness to embrace an open-minded approach to the anthropological study of dance.”

“The MA programme in Ethnochoreology has broadened my knowledge of cultural dance and increased my ability to examine movement as a possible reflection of the culture from which it originates.  I feel this course has prepared me to bridge gaps of cultural misunderstandings by drawing connections between cultures through movement. I am currently involved in researching Ethiopian Traditional dances and their influences on my creative practices as a Western contemporary dancer.”

“The MA in Ethnochoreology at the Irish World Academy gave me the invaluable chance to explore dance from a research-based perspective via history and the social sciences, while also engaging with the same dance traditions in my own body.  This unique approach to thinking, writing, and moving all in one setting provided me an opportunity to encounter the dance traditions of other cultures, as well as enriched my understanding of my own dance practice. I now work as both a professional dancer and dance researcher: concertizing, teaching, and presenting at academic conferences on traditional music and dance, Irish studies, and social theory.”

“The MA in Ethnochoreology changed my perceptions on how I view movement, and dance in particular, on a fundamental level. Aspects of human behaviour have become even more interesting and intriguing than what I previously thought. I will never look back.  I now work as a lecturer on the BA Irish Music and Dance programme at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University of Limerick.”
