DAN 218 - Contemporary Dance II (4)

Articulate with more precision and presence a movement vocabulary that is a contemporary blend of forms. With a focus on finding the body’s full movement in space and time, students will relocate balance and play with a range of full spinal and hip articulations while finding edges and contours. Building on the concepts in DAN 118, students will work on more complicated phrase work and full-bodied dancing, paying attention to shifting alignment, grounded movement, and full body movement as well as extension. The course incorporates readings on contemporary dance and filmed representations, which students will analyze. Prerequisite: DAN 118. See program director.
