Building on the knowledge gained in West African Dance I and II (DANC260 and DANC360), this course is intended for the very advanced student who has a lot of experience in West African dance. Students will learn rhythmically and physically complex traditional dances from selected ethnic groups in Ghana and will continue to hone in on the general movement vocabulary and discourse of West African dance in general. Students will also learn original contemporary West African dance phrases choreographed by the instructor and be guided through a creative process through improvisation to create their own phrases.

Students receiving full financial aid (with Expected Family Contribution [EFC] up to 25% of the cost of attendance) will have their program fee fully waived, students receiving no financial aid (EFC of 100%) will be charged $3,000, and charges for students whose EFC is between 25% and 100% will be based on a sliding scale from $1,000 to $2,000.
