DANC 049E. Dance Performance Repertory: Ballet


During Spring 2017 Ballet Repertory will follow the Antony Tudor Dance Studies curriculum. Students will learn and perform excerpts from Tudor’s seminal ballet Dark Elegies (1937) set to Gustav Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder. From tender moments of quiet devastation to careering bursts of rage, Tudor’s “ballet requiem,” expresses the raw emotion of a tight-knit community faced with the inexplicable loss of their beloved children. Students should be concurrently enrolled in a ballet technique class.
