Train. Compose. Create.
Movement and Performance conservatory is a 6 month Diploma Program aimed at developing dancers with sound technique, versatility in movement and music, independent approach to creation and distinctive performance ability. Training under this program involves theoretical and practical classes in all semesters. Students of this program would be appearing for an exam at the end of each semester.
As a dancer, one’s physical ability defines their range of movement, control and balance. The first phase of the program would primarily focus on enhancing the dancer’s body. As the program progresses, dancers would be taught how to adapt and perform different compositions, choreography and phrase work. This stage would also involve learning and perceiving music from different perspectives of choreography. Towards the end, dancers would be taught how to create solo, duet and group compositions. Along with that, they will be individually working on creating a piece under the guidance of a faculty mentor assigned to them.
The whole program consists of 3 phases:
1. Technique Training
2. Repertoire Work
3. Choreography Composition
Why choose this program?
This conservatory is designed to offer dancers and choreographers a space to explore within their existing knowledge and create an exchange with others hence bridging the gap between training and performance.
Often we observe that dancers stay very limited to the training they receive and fail to associate it with their own ideas and beliefs. We believe that artistic creation originates from training which is an integral part of creation, guided with a personal unique identity.
