DANC 011. Dance Lab I: Making Dance
This course will explore how might you use dance to tell a story, express an emotion, respond to music or sound, or make a political statement, just to name a few possibilities. Students will use movement assignments as a way to challenge their ideas about texture and rhythm, experiment with improvisation as a way of generating material, and engage with a research-based approach to choreography. Special guest artists will include choreographer Meredith Rainey, formerly of the Pennsylvania Ballet, and theater artist Carmen C. Wong.
All previous dance technique experience or other movement experience is welcome, but not required.
Corequisite: A course in dance technique must be taken concurrently.
