|Description:||The MA in Dance at York University is a five-term program offering the study of dance through historical and ethnographic research, critical writing, movement analysis and reconstruction. Established in 1976 the York MA, Canada’s first, was one of the first research-based dance graduate programs in the world. In thirty years it has produced 176 graduates who work as archivists, librarians, curators, choreographers, film producers, arts administrators, writers, critics and editors. The majority teach, at all age and skill levels, in a variety of settings. Many now hold doctorates, and 32% teach or have taught in universities and colleges in Canada, England, the United States, Trinidad and Taiwan. A dozen alumni are artistic directors of companies and collectives that regularly present traditional and contemporary performance as well as educational programming; even more have careers as independent artists.
The MA program admits ten to twelve full-time students per year to pursue research in the context of a large Department of Dance. York runs established BA and BFA programs and is introducing the PhD in Dance Studies and the MFA in Choreography and Dance Dramaturgy in 2008-09. Twelve core faculty members are based in the Department of Dance, and seven adjunct professors from York and other universities and institutions are affiliated with the Program.
