DAN 202 - Dance Studies

(4)
Analyzes concert dance practices, the dancing body and choreographies in reference to theories of the body, notions of modernism and postmodernism. The course will develop a dialogue about how we best read choreographies, dance(s) significations and importance in our world and how bodies in motion express important meanings. Students will be asked to read dance-studies texts, watch related filmed materials and engage in a productive dialogue about the meaning(s) in motion as they relate to the world in which we live. This course will also draw upon embodied exercise, and students will be asked to make connections between the physical body and the materials they are learning. Fall.
