Course Description

How to Make Dances
Fall

How to Make Dances is an entry-level class that introduces movers to the elements of time, space, rhythm, and dynamics. With these basic tools we can first begin to discover the many ways the body moves through time and space with rhythmic and affective variation. Next, we look at ways of connecting rudimentary movements into phrases that can evolve into complete solo works that communicate intent, tone, feeling, and thought. Through this process we develop a language about movement that lets the class talk about the elements of a dance and share constructive insight into each other's work.
Offered every other year beginning 2018-19.
