DAN 103 - Modern Dance Techniques

Through the study of several modern dance techniques, this studio course fosters strong technique, expanded range of motion, and efficiency of movement. Warm-ups and center movement phrases include elements of Graham, Limon, O’Donnell and Horton techniques to develop coordination, strength and flexibility. Somatic practices, such as the Bartenieff Fundamentals, yoga, and developmental movement patterns, are studied to promote body awareness and alignment. Theoretical underpinnings of the techniques and the biographies of the choreographers are discussed. Satisfies the Aesthetic Awareness and Creative Expression General Education requirement.
