Perspectives in Dance as Culture: Black Praxis
DANC 374
Fall 2024
Section: 01  

In this project-based course we are shedding light on the magic of praxis. Our focus will be rooted in the work of Black artists and dance makers, tuning into the choreographic seeds of their processes. Most Black artists go unrecognized for their contributions and tools they have shared in the field of dance--how they do what they do. Together we will uplift the rigor, complex methodologies, embodied research practices, tools, devices, recipes, and alchemy that is present in crafting works. We will engage in the art of archive through research, witnessing, writing, interviews, multimedia, and embodied practice, disrupting a Eurocentric lens on documented compositional methods.
