DANC 210
Spring 2025
Section: 01  

This level II course will bring deeper experience of embodied practices of the African diaspora as it relates to Brazilian life and culture. Level II will continue to explore various religious, social, and contemporary dance forms through a historical perspective of African identity in Brazil. Students will learn a greater perspective into the vibrant Afro-Brazilian culture and history through rigorous physical explorations, which will be complemented with lectures, readings, discussions, and video. Topics will include, yet are not limited to: the symbolic aspects of the body, historical context of movement behavior, the sociopolitical aspects of the dances, the derivation of the movement techniques, as well as connection of mind, body, and spirit in culture and dance.
