Course Revision #1

Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

DNCE 2311 - CE: Dance Composition (ART/P)
(3.0 cr; 4.0 cr; fall)
Introduction to the basic elements of choreography, including the use of space, time, energy, abstraction, motif and development, and the selection of music. Using improvisation and assigned movement problems to learn the process of crafting solo and group choreography.

 

Rationale (see instructions):  The Dance Discipline is currently offering this course for the first time.  3.0 credits were proposed when the faculty thought students would use some of the class time (M/W/F 2:15-3:20) as a laboratory for creating movement.  That has not been possible given the amount of material to be covered.  Therefore, there is more work required out of class than was originally anticipated.

 

 

 

Course Revision #2

Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

 

DNCE 3031 - CE:  Advanced Ballet III (ART/P)
(1.0 cr [max 3.0 cr]; Prereq-2331 or #; spring, every year)
Advanced level study of ballet technique with focus on the fine tuning of physical and performing skills. Appropriate for upper level students. Ballet slippers required.

 

Rationale (see instructions): This change is meant to address the confusion often associated with the words ‘intermediate’ and ‘advanced.’  The course number change reflects the creation of Level I technique classes.
