Studying at Plymouth
“After completing my first degree in BA Hons Choreography at Dartington College of Arts, I was elated to learn that I could continue my studies at Plymouth – for me, this was hugely significant, both as a practitioner and businesswoman. I made a lot of local and international connections and the course content shaped my practice to be much more reflexive and more creative.
“The course gave me the courage to be authentic – to me that’s important. It focused me in on what I’m passionate about. Who I am and what I can offer to the world. The confidence and knowledge I gained during my MA gave me such a solid foundation to build on.
“As someone who often stands on stage for a living, talking to thousands of people at a time, I know that preparation, professionalism and creativity are key. The course taught me to do my research, think outside the box and to be comfortable in my own skin. It also taught me the importance of perseverance – if you can read a Judith Butler (American philosopher and gender theorist) text you can do anything!
