Contemporary I for Dance and Theatre

This is a course from a previous year. View the current courses

Successful performances in dance and theatre rely on training that prepares performers in mind, body, and spirit to enter the realm of aesthetic exploration and expression. In this class, we will work toward acquiring skills that facilitate the investigation of previously unimagined ways of moving. Through traditional and experimental practices, students will develop a sense of form, energy use, strength and control, and awareness of time and rhythm. Improvisation is an important aspect of this study. Placement class required.
