Dance History

Component—Year

This course examines the historical roots of contemporary dance, with an emphasis on global forms that have had expression and become hybridized in the United States. Themes that run throughout the course include dance and spirituality, sexuality, gender, class, and activism. Working thematically rather than chronologically, we will look at what makes dance universal and imperative as a cultural force in general in the context of related sociopolitical and artistic movements. We will seek to understand how dance is both is expressed by and reflects the human condition, embedded in communities as both a social and an artistic form.​
