33-2350 Music and Rhythm in Dance


Course develops dancers’ understanding of music and dance in relation to each other. Particular focus is given to developing practical rhythmic skills. Through regular written and movement exercises, students develop proficiency using verbal counting systems to analyze, perform and teach movement materials while also learning to read, write and perform standard rhythmic notation. Approximately one in three class meetings will use lecture, discussion, listening and viewing activities to introduce musical concepts and examine a variety of contemporary musical styles. Music will also be explored in relationship to dancemaking processes including consideration of historic music and dance collaborations.
