Assessment
and Goals
:

Assessment: Students will participate in dance lessons and discussion, learn and create movement sequences to perform for one another in small groups and write several 1-2 page papers responding to their experiences, assigned readings and videos. Goals: Explore the expressive movement potential of the human body using the broad fundamentals of modern dance. Introduce dance as a performance art. Teach the basic elements, terminology of ballet and modern dance, and compare their differences. Experience kinesthetically the technical requirements for dance. Give students an understanding of basic principles of skeletal alignment for dance. Teach the codified techniques of ballet and how they apply to modern dance. Sketch historical and cultural context for these two styles of concert dance.

THIS COURSE WAS PREVIOUSLY OFFERED BY WELLNESS AND SPORTS SCIENCE IN THE EDUCATION DIVISION AND EMPHASIZED THE ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATED WITH DANCE AS PHYSICAL EXERCISE AND TRAINING.  IT IS NOW OFFERED IN THE HUMANITIES DIVISION WITH GREATER CONTENT IN THE ANALYTICAL ASPECTS OF DANCE AS AN ART FORM.
