Designing, Creating and Realizing: This course requires students to actualize their understanding and investigation of biology through the completion and performance of a series of movement studies and dance compositions. Their work will culminate in a final choreographic project that demonstrates thorough comprehension and analysis of course material. Studies will learn various methods and paradigmatic approaches to movement invention, composition and performance as a medium for the investigation of biology.
