Introduction to Dance


An introduction to the discipline of dance studies, this primarily lecture/discussion course investigates dance as a cultural form and as an artistic, meaning-making system.  Through lectures, discussions, readings, video screenings, attendance at performances, critical writing, and occasional movement sessions, students will build a well-rounded, foundational understanding of major concepts and issues engaged in the study of various dance forms.  No previous dance experience is necessary.
