Contemporary Practice I for Dance and Theatre


Successful performances in dance and theatre rely on training that prepares performers—in mind, body, and spirit—to enter the realm of aesthetic exploration and expression. In this class, we will work toward acquiring skills that facilitate the investigation of how the body moves in familiar and previously unimagined ways. Through traditional and experimental practices, students will develop a sense of functional alignment, form, physical energy and dynamics, strength, and focus, as well as awareness of time and rhythm. Improvisation is an important aspect of this study. Placement class is required; please check with the dance program office for the exact date and time.
