The Artist in the Community: Civic Engagement and Collaborative Dancemaking

ENVS 376
Spring 2025
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: DANC 376, THEA 376
Course Cluster and Certificates: Community-Engaged Learning, Service Learning

Through both theoretical analysis and practical application, students will grow their understanding of community-based performance and collaborative art-making. Grounded in readings and seminar discussions about the practice and process of community-based art, students will apply their learning through community-engaged research. Through direct practice, students in the course will explore how collaborative performance can address local issues, spark community dialogue, and encourage civic participation--whether on a college campus, in a neighborhood, or across a city.

Class meetings will take place virtually during the semester. Student research and project development will be conducted in person. Note: This course includes required Spring Break travel to work on a Forklift Danceworks project. Travel expenses for the trip are paid by the University.
