Drawing from the multicultural, multi-ethnic mix of Singapore and London, the new BA (Hons) International Contemporary Dance Practices programme aims to develop independent and experimental portfolio dance artists who are responsive to changes in the global dance industry. The transnational programme is a collaboration between LASALLE and London Contemporary Dance School.
In this article, Dance Informa magazine speaks with Melissa Quek, Head, School of Dance & Theatre, to find out more about the first-of-its-kind programme and what students can expect.
Melissa shares, “This programme speaks to an increasingly integrated dance practice on a global scale. It aims to develop dancers with an awareness of global citizenry and an understanding of how the development of cultures impacts them as artists and people. The focus of the programme is on helping students discover new transcultural and intercultural expressive languages to become independent artists with international careers.”
