Spring 2025
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.

This elementary level ballet course is a mix of practice and theory. Ballet terminology and stylistic concepts will be introduced with emphasis on correct alignment, musicality, and movement flow. In addition to learning the basics of ballet technique, various ways that ballet choreographers have addressed issues of politics, race, and class are examined through films, readings, and discussions. Traditional ballets will be juxtaposed with iterations from contemporary choreographers who have created unique and powerful works addressing issues from the eighteenth century to today.
