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 neo-baroque comedie-ballet based on the seven deadly sins. Previous dance experience is required; dancers with acting experience are especially welcome. This course will culminate in a required performance in the CFA.
