Title

Anatomy for the Performer

Professor

Kriota Willberg

Schedule

Wed 1:00 pm - 3:20 pm AVA


The course focuses on primary bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles relevant to dancing, the physiology of breathing, and the body as a complex physical system to understand better how to prevent injuries and how to develop a full range of expression with safety and pleasure. The course also includes kinetic awareness techniques that bridge the gap between intellectual understanding of anatomical information and actual experience of the body in movement and so help relieve chronic tension, gain flexibility, and deepen the body-mind connection. Students have the opportunity to work in depth on chronic body problems. Weekly assignments are given. The course is open to students in Dance, Theater or Performance. Enrollment is limited to sixteen students.

PERFORMANCE CLASSES

Intensive technique studies are essential to a serious dance student's training. Intending and current dance majors must register for four credits of dance technique each semester of their four years at Bard. Students are welcome to watch classes currently being offered to learn about the different modern dance styles/methods of teaching and the ballet for modern dancers.

DAN 103- Introduction to Dance

In the fall, two classes may be taken for 2 credits which are indivisible: both sections must be passed in order to receive credit.

American Folk Music & Dance

Professor

Bill Vanaver

Schedule

Th 10:00 am - 12:30 pm AVA

2 credits An experiential survey course, offering an examination of the great American music and dance traditions. Students explore, for example, how mountain ballads joined with gospel music and blues to become Bluegrass, and how English miners' wooden soled shoe dances joined with Native American and African styles to become "Appalachian clogging." We will examine how Irish reels become hoedowns, how tap dancing was born, and learn to recognize the basic difference between the song and dance styles of the Eastern Woodlands and Plains Native Americans. Protest songs from revolutionary times will be followed through the great labor, civil rights, women's movements and beyond. Students will join their own singing, dancing and playing music to these traditional songs and dances, studying the unifying forces of music and dance in different American communities throughout history. Open to students with some experience in dancing, singing, or playing an instrument. (Enrollment limited to 20.)
