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 comédie-ballet called THE NARCOLEPTIC COUNTESS. 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.
