This course is an introduction to dance as an art form and examines the different roles of primarily Western forms of dance from the end of the 19th century to present. Students will investigate how concert dance shapes and is shaped by Western culture. Through practical dance experiences students will deepen their understanding of the creative process and their appreciation of dance as a medium for social commentary and artistic expression.
