DANC 049E. Dance Performance Repertory: Ballet

During Spring 2019 Ballet Repertory will be exposed to contemporary ballet.  Classical ballet technique will be interpreted in various ways with regards to musicality, line, form, and presentation.  Students will utilize their classical ballet training as a foundation for exploring nuances of phrasing, changes in balance and collaborating with fellow dancers to see how far the movements can be stretched.  The resulting work will be performed in the Spring Dance Concert.  Students should be concurrently enrolled in a ballet technique class.  This class is open to Ballet III level students and students with Pointe and Partnering experience.  If taken for academic credit a research paper and an end of the semester reflection paper are required.
