Dance Composition

This course provides students with tools for composing engaging, affective, and communicative dance artworks. Dancers will develop a deeper understanding of the choreographic process and the underlying principles involved in creating dance compositions. Throughout this exploration, students will gain an enhanced knowledge of their unique choreographic voice and the ability to share that voice through dance. Students will explore an array of choreographic tools, some of which will include: sources of creative inspiration, the utilization of structure, shape, space, and time as well as an introduction to Laban Effort shapes. This course will be divided equally between academic study and physical movement application. Therefore, this course is most recommended for students with an interest in the physical expression of dance.
