Repertory and Performance: Create, Collaborate, and Perform the Making of Multimedia Dance Work
DANC 378
Fall 2010 not offered
This course may be repeated for credit.

In this course, students will learn 18th-century French baroque dance--the aristocratic entertainment that evolved at the court of Louis XIV and became the predecessor of today's classical ballet. Once this foundation is laid, we will incorporate period dances, along with contemporary movement, into a neobaroque comedie-ballet called "Monsieur le Champagne." Often kidnapped by royalty, Monsieur le Champagne was a highly coveted and extravagant coiffeur in France; therefore, large wigs will be fashioned and worn by students in performance. Previous dance experience is required; actors with movement experience and dancers with acting experience are especially welcome. This course will culminate in a required performance (TBA) in the spring of 2011.
