DAN 351 - Dancing in the Past and Present: Romanticism and Beyond (4 Cr.)

This course traces the development of western theatrical dancing from the Romantic Era, through the Classical Era, to the present, through an examination of the major trends in dance performance, focusing primarily on the evolution of nineteenth century classical ballet, ballet’s movement toward modernism, and the rise of modern dance in the twentieth century.  The study of continuing and new developments in concert dance in Western cultures will be examined through the investigation of dance performance and choreography, leading movements in art, and the international influences on dance.  The introduction of notable figures and movement theories will be supported by discussion, lectures, live performance, visual, and print media. Prerequisite: Sophomore standing or permission of instructor. Spring 2020 and alternate Spring semesters. Program faculty.
