DNC 265, 266 - Screen Dance

Course unit(s): 1
Meets GAR: Meets general academic requirement IL when offered as 266.
Prerequisite(s): DNC 115 Dance Practices I .
Visual Images of the moving body have never been more prominent, and the ability to present one’s choreography globally has never been more accessible.  This course examines screen dance as a hybrid art form and a cultural phenomenon, combining a theoretical examination of screen dance with the practical experience of creating original dance videos.  An exploration of dance’s history on screen from Hollywood’s movie musicals, music videos, avant-garde explorations, and YouTube will be examined.  This course will introduce students to the tools for creating dance in today’s digital environment, as well as exploring topics of representation and kinesthetic possibilities for filmed bodies.
