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: Teach the basic Tap steps, terminology and movement vocabulary. Introduce rhythmic possibilities of working with tap shoes. Learn and practice drills to develop coordination and facility. Explore the roots of this unique dance style in African and European cultures.  Trace the history and function of the style. Explore musicality of dance through a variety of musical accompaniments. Experience kinesthetically the technical requirements of training for dance. Explore the principles of rhythm, improvisation and individual style in dance.    

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

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.  IT WAS OFFERED ON AN EXPERIMENTAL BASIS FOR .5 CREDIT BUT HAS BEEN EXPANDED TO GIVE STUDENTS A MORE THOROUGH BASE IN THE STYLE.
