Bharata Natyam III
DANC 382
Spring 2023 not offered
This course may be repeated for credit.

This is an advanced technique-based Bharatanatyam course. Students are required to have taken both Bharata Natyam I (DANC261) and Bharata Natyam II (DANC362). This is to ensure that students have a foundation in both the practical and theoretical study of Bharata Natyam prior to enrolling in this course. Evaluation for the course will be based on class participation, a full-length studio performance of Bharatanatyam compositions and a short journal due at the end of semester. We will focus mainly on advanced studio work. Students will also perform one repertory piece at the Worlds of Dance concert. This advanced course is designed to further students understanding of the technique, history and changing nature of Bharatanatyam dance. The primary aim of the course is to foster an understanding of the role, function, and imaging of Bharatanatyam dance vis--vis ideas about tradition and modernity. The course will be moving rapidly through the material.
