This course will introduce students to the human body in motion in a broad range of contemporary, ethnographic, and historic dance forms. The viewing of dance on video, film, and in concert will be used to develop basic dance literacy. Special attention will be focused on the relationship of dance, gender, and the body and the ability of dance to convey ideas and images that confirm or challenge our attitudes and beliefs about being a man or a woman.
