Final Showing
Wednesday, April 20, 2016 - 9:30am
Sherrill Center, Room 351

This course will address trends in early American modern dance or “moderain.” The emphasis will be on technical work that encompasses the entire body in a sense of wholeness, torque or specific set of energies. American modern techniques include those authored by Lester Horton, Katherine Dunham, Jose Limon, and Martha Graham, and Merce Cunningham. Classes will be structured around a singular or two techniques per semester and will emphasize a level-one movement vocabulary and will work up to basic phrase work.
