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 technical and artistic concerns of presenting dance for public performance. Introduce students to the mental and physical demands of rehearsal, technical preparation and stage presence.  Introduce elements of lighting design, costuming, publicity, videography, sound and management. Train for stamina, strength and control in performance. Introduce acting in dance and aesthetic considerations in performance. Explore options for performance venues.  Evaluate production aspects of pre-recorded and live dance performances.

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.  THE COURSE HAS BEEN INCREASED FROM 1 CREDIT TO 2 DUE TO ADDED CONTENT THAT ALLOWS FOR MORE IN DEPTH INVESTIGATION AND CRITIQUE OF DANCE CHOREOGRAPHY AND PERFORMANCE.
