Movement Directing


Review of the Movement Directing Program


Become a movement director and coach by doing. Beyond the theory, the New International Performing Arts Institute places an emphasis on hands-on experience.


Students will create choreography, learn stage combat, rehearse with actors, teach, learn and much more with NIPAI professional faculty who are working professionals in theatre and film industry. Students receive real-world training that prepares them to achieve success in the industry by creating an educational professional experience few other institutes can offer. Our Movement Directing program curriculum blends academic theory with practical skills to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to actually land a job in the competitive field of movement directing, actors coaching and teaching.

In the creation of every program, we worked with students and faculty from around the world. We adapted the best ideas and elements from top university movement directing programs and designed an alternative which provides a thorough grounding in movement coaching, and is also flexible in meeting the diverse needs of our students.

We give an opportunity to learn directing through a variety of options, through a dynamic blend of InClass sessions, distant learning, workshops, and immediate application of gained knowledge at the organizations with a professional crew. Students work with actors from the first day of their classes and will learn and explore the numerous tools, practices, methods and challenges that movement directors face on-set and at rehearsals. In addition to all practical sessions, creative tasks and online classes, students assist other members of their groups in the roles of choreographers, directors, and performers, and in NIPAI Diploma Programs students should make their graduation performances.
