Please summarize the intent of the proposed changes. 

New 2000 level courses and title changes in Ballet, Jazz and Modern dance implement a sequence allowing students to move through a progression of levels in a specific technique. In Dance in Society students will write and think critically about cross cultural dance forms in the modern world.  This course is essential for students wishing to pursue an Area of Emphasis or Area of Concentration in Dance.

What are the financial or staffing implications of this proposal for other Disciplines?

Additional technique classes will likely require use of HFA 125 and scheduling will be done in consultation with the Theatre Discipline.  The Dance program is currently researching other appropriate venues.
