DANC 234 - Dance History


CR: 3
Dance has been a dynamic part of human culture for millennia; the first evidence of dance appeared in cave paintings made 20,000 years ago. Every recorded civilization has danced. From prehistory to present, this course addresses dance in selected world cultures. Through lecture, historic and contemporary texts, and film and video, it focuses broadly on dance in non-Western societies including Indonesia, India, Africa, aboriginal Australia, and native America. It includes dance in Greece, Rome, Renaissance, romantic ballet in Europe, and post-modern and contemporary dance worldwide. This class will take one field trip to see Native American dancers at a powwow. Offered alternate years. V.4, V.6a
