Approaches to Contemporary Dance and Movement Practices

DAN 408/AAS 408

Info tab content
This advanced studio course explores the technique, aesthetics, cultural contexts and histories of Hip-Hop dance forms. We'll not only study the physical movements associated with each form, but also the deeper Afro-Diasporic aesthetic principles that guide those movements as well as their connection to other art forms of Hip-Hop culture. We'll study the relationship between movement and embodied knowledge by encouraging students to critically engage with their own experience of these dance forms. Goals will be facilitated through regular interaction with course professors as well as classes with recognized expert practitioners of the dance.
