Introduction to Dance

Division: Fine Arts, Comm, and New Media

Department: Dance

Course: DANC 1010

Title: Introduction to Dance

Description: This is both a movement-based and a lecture-based course that introduces students to the art form of dance through active exploration of its many components including ritual, movement, movement composition and performance. Movement-based prompts and games, combined with classroom discussions, will facilitate the exploration of the current state of dance as both a form of creative expression and a social, religious, and cultural practice. Throughout classroom sessions we will be exploring elements of a wide variety of dance styles including ballet, jazz, modern/contemporary technique and improvisation as a preparation for movement projects that are produced, choreographed and presented by students in the course.
