Advanced/Senior Projects in Dance (DAN4712.01)

Elena Demyanenko

This is an essential course for students wishing to make new work for performance this term, whether one project or a series. It is designed specifically to support each person’s artistic voice and manner of working.

Attention will be given to all elements involved in composition and production, including collaborative aspects. Students are expected to show their work throughout stages of development, complete their projects, and perform them formally or informally by the end of the term. Everyone will be engaged in feedback sessions, giving full attention to the work at hand, honing critical/observational skills and articulating their perceptions and thoughts.

This term this class is offered for 4 credits, giving us more time to consider an expanded notion of how work can be shared with the public as well as thoroughly explore and workshop technical, mechanical, performative  and creative elements of making choreographic work.


Learning Outcomes:
-develop new work
