Movement and Dance in the 21st Century - DANC101

The twentieth century exploded with dance forms. Modern dance was born, with its emphasis on the expressive capacities of the individual. The dances of other cultures became increasingly available yet remained enticingly exotic. Women threw away their corsets and moved freely. Social dance went through wild changes born on the tides of musical revolution. Rigorous physical practices created super human bodies and dance became an extreme sport. This unit provides theoretical and embodied knowledge of some of the major dance forms of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Teaching is in both lecture and workshop format. Assessment protocols are flexible offering students a choice of performance or essay for their final assessment. This unit is suitable for students from diverse backgrounds interested in dance.
