Introduction to Dance
Introduction to Dance
This entry-level dance course introduces movement techniques, improvisation/composition, performance, experiential anatomy, and history of 20th century American modern dance. Students develop flexibility, strength, coordination, rhythm, and vocabulary in the modern idiom. Concepts of time, space, energy, and choreographic form are presented through improvisation and become the basis for a final choreographic project. Readings, research, and reflective and critical writing about dance performance round out the experience. 2 hrs. lect./3 hrs. lab

Writing the Body
Writing the Body
In this course we will examine the dialogue between the language of the performing body and the written word. Our goals will be to enhance our understanding of the human body through technical practice, experiential anatomy, and ways of writing that respond to and deconstruct the experience of embodiment. Daily technique classes, readings, writings, and performance assignments will encourage a synthesis of personal embodied experience and the words that express that experience. Personal essays, poetry, and several compositional works will culminate in a final performance of works created during the term.
