DANC 311 Contemporary Technique III

This course is a continuation of DANC 211-Contemporary II that explores the technique and the theories of Contemporary Dance at the 300 level. Emphasis is placed on advanced modern, postmodern, and contemporary dance techniques and the application of movement principles essential to the training to make a professional dancer. In this course, different styles of contemporary dance will be presented with an emphasis on improving anatomical awareness and alignment, developing integrated movement patterns and internal connections, rhythmic awareness and using dance as a form of expression. In this class students will observe dance on video and performance, read and write, from a scholarly perspective, about Contemporary Dance as well as discuss the genres and styles of individual ideals relating to the overall form.
