Staff and students are attending the prestigious course Seminars for New Ethnochoreologists as part of the Erasmus Intensive Programme in Norway.

A group of 12 masters students have joined Dr Andrée Grau and Dr Ann David on the trip to the Norwegian University for Science and Technology. The course aims to establish a theoretical and methodological basis for approaching dance knowledge as intangible cultural heritage.

Dr David said it was the largest cohort of Roehampton University students to attend the event, reflecting the international reputation of the University’s high-calibre programmes and research.

The course is part of a series for new ethnochoreologists initiated, planned and taught by scholars within the International Council for Traditional Music and its study group on Ethnochoreology and has been established for several years. The series will be run by the Dance Studies programme within the Department for Music at the University
