Modern Dance II|
|This course may be repeated for credit.|
This intermediate modern dance class will focus on moving with technical precision, projection of energy, dynamic variation, and proper alignment. Emphasis will be placed on learning movement quickly and developing awareness of space, time, and energy. Friday's class will be taught by different visiting artists.
Interpretation: This course is based on the practice of interpreting and performing movement. Moreover, this course emphasizes that interpretation requires practice. Through repeated practice the students' ability to understand, evaluate, contextualize and perform material deepens as they become more perceptive and attuned to subtleties in time, space, force, sources and contexts of the movement.
Designing, creating, realizing: Performance in the arts is neither treated as rote repetition, nor as the objective accomplishment of task. Performance combines the variable art of interpretation with the creative ability to actualize that interpretation in movement. Through its emphasis on the practice of performance, Modern Dance Technique combines the categories of "interpretation" with "designing, creating, realizing."
