DANC 060. Dance Technique: Contemporary Modern III

Bethany Formica Bender uses her multi-company performance experience and eclectic skill base in a class designed to build up ideas and break down contemporary/modern dance technique. One need not be afraid to sweat, laugh, or fall over. This class is accessible and aerobic; humor and high energy are important. This advanced level contemporary dance course builds on skills developed in Modern I & II. Additional vocabulary and increased floor work including inversions will be introduced with a focus on building stamina, increasing technical proficiency, and beginning to work on performance quality. We will also be viewing a variety of contemporary dance artists to deepen and discuss our relationship with dance. If taken for academic credit, concert attendance and two short reflection papers are required.
