DANCE 310 - Dance History


Prerequisites: None
Requirement Fulfillment: Fulfills a course requirement in the Dance Core Concentration
Examines the history and development of Western theatrical dance; from the European Court Ballets of the 16th century to the Americanization of Ballet in the 20th C, from the rise of Modern Dance at the turn of the 20th C to the Post Modern Movement of the 1960’s- and to the contemporary state of both forms. Via readings, video/film viewings, research projects and discussions students will examine the evolution of various modes of creative expression, development of technical form and socio-political contexts. They will develop understandings of how dance technique and expression rise and are reflections of both the individual and society.
