Provides a rigorous opportunity to view, discuss, read, think, and write about contemporary dance and its history through the study and practice of criticism. We watch a variety of concert dance on film and popular dance in social media—from Swan Lake to Single Ladies—and witness local live dance performance. We even try out some movement ourselves, although dance experience is not required. Writing, reading, and re-writing are at the heart of this course.
