Javanese Dance I (DANC251) is designed to introduce students to the rich traditions of Central Javanese dance practice as well as cultural practices, aesthetics, philosophies, and history that surround the tradition. The course will begin with the basic movement vocabulary of Central Javanese dance styles, and proceed to the study of dance repertoire. The course largely focuses on techniques and practice of Javanese court dance repertoires, supplemented with short lectures that will provide the sociocultural, historical, and contemporary contexts. This course is designed to include occasions where students will engage with renowned Javanese dance practitioners through their guest lecture sessions. Students in the course will perform with live music provided by Wesleyan's Javanese Ensemble at the end of the semester concert, as well as at the Worlds of Dance concert.
