DANC 101 SC - History of Dance in Western Culture: 1600-present


This class traces the evolution of dance in Europe, Russia and the USA from the late Renaissance through the Baroque, Romantic, and Classical, to the Modern, Post-Modern and contemporary eras. The course focuses on dance as both an art form and as cultural embodiment with particular attention to how norms of gender and sexuality arise, are reinforced, and challenged through dance. We will look principally at concert dance, but will also consider social, popular, cultural and ritual practices as they have influenced or been appropriated by the theatrical.
