Content

This unit will cover the three areas of dance technique, choreography, and contemporary dance history. Practical classes in contemporary dance technique will build students’ understanding of transfer of weight, anatomical alignment, modulation of dynamics and complexity of rhythms and forms. Choreography classes will explore individual physical motivation and imagination for movement creation and execution. Readings in dance history will focus on the conditions, nature, and experiences of contemporary (or modern) and post-modern dance, particularly as these relate to significant choreographers and their approaches to choreography.
