Advanced Projects in Dance (DAN4795.01)

Dana Reitz

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 of 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 observational skills and articulating their perceptions and thoughts. Taking into account specific circumstances related to the pandemic, we will consider an expanded notion of how work can be shared with the public.
