Composition Across the Arts
DANC 212
Fall 2019
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: THEA 212

Grounded in embodied art-making practices, this survey course will introduce students to art-making processes in dance, performance, creative writing, and sound. Connections will be explored amongst the disciplines and students will be encouraged to discover their own unique and hybrid forms. The class will be facilitated by Nicole Stanton with modules taught by resident and visiting artists from across the arts. The first part of the semester will focus on hands-on experimentation, contextual readings, viewings, and discussion. In the second part of the semester, students will create their own creative projects, participate in in-depth critique sessions, and develop a digital portfolio to document their work. The course will culminate in public exhibitions and performances of the student's creative projects. This course can serve as the gateway to the Dance Major.
