Performance Opportunities
It is vital for students to make the connection between technical training, creative exploration and performance. Accordingly, performance study draws together these elements providing students across all year groups with a variety of opportunities to perform their own work and work created by visiting professional choreographers.

Performance projects are directly concerned with preparing students for a successful performing career. Emphasis is placed on communication through performance and on realising choreographic ideas and intentions.

Integral to this approach is an on-going programme of visiting professional choreographers who introduce students to different choreographic methods and styles. Completed performance projects are presented at NSCD's Riley Theatre and other venues. Further information about the professional choreographers who have created work for NSCD can be found here.

Choreography
NSCD's approach is founded on the belief that creative exploration and growth are central to the developing dance artist. Choreographic study is designed to nurture individual artistic expression and to challenge and deepen students' understanding of choreographic and creative processes.

The nature of choreography is explored through an in-depth investigation of its expressive elements and through the development of movement language and performance contexts. This study is further extended through a consideration of the relationship between dance and other modes of artistic expression such as music, visual art and literature.

Through specific tasks and assignments students are encouraged to explore areas of individual artistic interest and to develop their own choreographic voice.

The Movement Studies course involves research into movement as a source of individual artistic growth, promoting the development of a diverse range of physical and expressive skills.
