This is designed for those who have made dance work and are interested in further developing a sense of personal movement phrasing. Full attention is paid to detail, nuance, and finesse of any phrase material that is made. Students use phrasing as a way to explore compositional, technical and performance issues and consider how aspects of dance making, technique and performance directly affect and inform phrasing.
Students are expected to create and develop new phrase material of their own, teach this work to others, and rehearse outside of class. Phrases may be combined into larger dance scores that are performed in dance workshops or studio showings.
Corequisite: Dance Workshop (Thursday 7:00 – 8:30pm).
