DANC 376
Fall 2019 not offered
Certificates: Civic Engagement, Civic Engagement Minor
Course Cluster: Service Learning

Through both theoretical analysis and practical application, students will explore how, in a collaborative community setting, performance and art-making come into relationship with the local environment, history, and communities. This hybrid course includes readings, seminar discussion, project-based learning, and community engaged research and practice. We will gain an overview of artists who engage directly with communities, places and environments, and explore new means of civic participation. The class will work on a collaborative project based in Middletown area and history. For final projects, students will develop short, creative projects in collaboration with a site of their choosing.
