Dance Composition I

This course provides students the opportunities to learn the fundamentals of choreography.  Students come to recognize that a dance has a beginning, a middle, and an end, and that the form of a dance must be related to its content if it is to be an aesthetic whole. Through experimentation and improvisation, compositional elements are gradually introduced (space, time energy, etc.) and students attempt to incorporate these elements into their compositional work.  After-school rehearsals, special engagements, and performances may be required.
