The School of Culture and Creative Expressions (SCCE), founded in 2012 at Ambedkar University Delhi, is conceptualised as a location that implements a new vision for arts pedagogy and practice in India, with pioneering programs that anticipate the opening up of a dialogue between practice and research. SCCE’s MA Performance Practice (Dance) program is the first practice-based program of its kind in South Asia. With its integrative curriculum that includes physical training, choreography, critical thinking and inter-disciplinary studies, the program will equip its participants to redefine and rearticulate the boundaries of dance practice as performers, creators, researchers, pedagogues or managers through a critical engagement with the embodied cultures and the evolving dance ecology of the Indian subcontinent. Through a supportive dialogue that enables students to develop and refine their work, students are encouraged to become agents of their own learning.
