DANC 378
Spring 2018
Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.
Course Cluster: Queer Studies

This interdisciplinary course draws on multiple approaches to understanding contemporary dance and the moving body from global perspectives. It examines an eclectic array of movement and choreographic styles with influences ranging from Asia to Africa to Europe. Much of the course focuses on the creation and performance of original choreographic material generated in class. This material will be performed both as in-class studio showings and at the Worlds of Dance concert. Students will spend the majority of class time collaborating and learning various movement possibilities. In addition, they will also learn by viewing, discussing, and writing. There will be several guest classes with instructors representing the world of global contemporary dance today, who will bring their diverse experience and unique styles to bear on our discussions.
