Each week, students receive distant tasks, assignments, cases for self-studies which gradually lead them to an understanding of the topic and the ability to apply knowledge to the projects.
Objectives of the course:

Gain tools and skills to create choreography independently;
Build a foundation for communicating the artistic vision to the choreographer;
Understand how to encourage the choreographer to contribute to your ideas and how to produce joint ideas.
Owing to impressive learning flexibility, this program will be convenient for ambitious professionals who are constantly on the move or are looking to balance work and study to apply their skills in real-time.
The core of every program at NIPAI is learning by doing! Thus, at the distance course, our students will gain knowledge through practical tasks for directors that bring better understanding and technical skills in the basics of composition, stage plans, storyboarding, scale models atmosphere creation through the use of a particular design concept.
