Like its prerequisite ACD203 this unit will cover the three areas of dance technique, composition and dance history. An experienced member of the wider dance community or faculty member will work in technique classes to build students’ understanding of transfer of weight, anatomical alignment, modulation of dynamics and complexity of rhythms and forms. Composition classes will explore individual anatomical and physical motivation and imagination for movement creation and execution, in small group contexts. Readings in dance history will focus on the conditions, nature and experience of modern and post-modern dance groups.
