Course Description

DNC 157
Music and Dance
Spring

This course is a study of music and its relation to dance. After an in-depth study of rhythm, we focus on musical/choreographic forms and procedures, the elements of music in relation to movement, and the exploration of different kinds of relationships between music and choreography. A broad sampling of music literature will permeate the course and provide the basis for choreographic exploration. We will also develop skills for creating soundscores using a variety of free software packages.
