NEW: Analysis of Art

This course is designed as an anatomy class for dancers, prospective dance teachers, and anyone interested in the application of anatomy to dance technique. Scientific information is limited to a need to know basis, focusing on the musculoskeletal system, with immediate transfer of lecture material to dance-movement concepts. This course will present a scientific basis for the human body that will aid in the technical and aesthetic growth of dance performance. In addition to the weekly lecture, the class will make frequent visits to the dance studio, in which students will be guided in applying scientific concepts to movement.

OLD: A/C

NEW: Analysis of Arts

This course will explore some of the ways the human body has been "constructed" or idealized, in the course of certain periods in history when dance and choreography played key roles in defining the spirit of the time. Starting with French Romantic Ballet of the early l9th century, we will proceed through ballet and modern dance history in Europe, Russia and the U.S, examining along how the dancing body, both male and female, was configured and reconfigured by dance artists, both performers and choreographers.  The course has a three-fold aim:  1) to help students piece together a chronological "narration" of the development of dance as a modern theater art; 2) to help them learn to deconstruct choreographic "texts" (as encountered in video tapes and live performances) so as to uncover the various ideologies behind these texts; 3) to introduce students to the craft of writing about dance, through reading dance critics and historians, and through writing their own papers.  Materials for the course will be the books on the reading list, articles handed out by the teacher, dance videos and live dance performances at Bard and elsewhere if appropriate.

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.)
