This course introduces students to 20th century American choreographic methods. Drawing from key texts, improvisational games and dance scores, “Choreography ONE” examines influential choreographic pedagogues alongside major figures of Western dance history and key critical methods. Students will practice systems to make, discuss and critique dances while situating those modes in historical, cultural and performance context. All class members will receive optional lab time in the studio to respond to assignments and have the opportunity to partner with student lighting designers. This course will culminate in the performance of student work in the TAPS Fall Dance Concert.
