Designed for the dancer who has not been exposed to basic modern dance techniques. Class is open to anyone. Goal is to communicate through movement. Many different modern dance styles will be explored including Graham, Denis/Shawn and Cunningham. Video will be used as well as a text. Movement experiences will range from the classroom situation to large open space activities including out of doors. Students will learn to analyze others’ movement patterns and how people communicate through movement. This is an important aspect in dance therapy. Music, as well as music theory, will be explored.
