DANC 107 - Ballet Technique


CR: 1
Ballet originated in Italy during the Renaissance. Catherine de’ Medici brought ballet to France. There ballet developed further, and then spread throughout the royal courts of Europe. In this course, students will learn the highly specific steps and stylized gestures that make up this precise technical genre. The terminology of ballet is French, and the French Academies, at the direction of King Louis the 14th of France, definied the vocabulary, which is used in many other dance techniques as well. May be repeated for credit. IV.3, V.6b
