Dance History

Professor

Elizabeth Kendall

Schedule

Tu                 10:00 am - 12:50 pm     HEG 300

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 the way 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.

 

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 Ballet for modern dancers.

DAN 104- Introduction to Dance

One credit each. Classes in modern dance and ballet intended for the beginner;  no previous dance experience necessary. Open to all students. Each section earns the student one credit; students must be registered for two, or three, or four sections.  New students with previous dance experience should speak with the dance professors before registration. Unless otherwise stated, these are modern dance classes, and are held in room 184 of the Fisher Center for the Performing Arts (FCPA).

Body Balancing Technique

Professor

Leah Feldman

Schedule

Th    1:00 pm – 3:00 pm  Studio South FCPA

This course will introduce students to a method that will restore muscular balance and efficiency in movement. Body Balancing Technique is taught on mats and also on specialized equipment created to give variable resistance and support for muscular action. The technique emphasizing body alignment and breath work enables the dancer to direct the movement out from the physical center. During the course of studies, the student will work towards precisely executed, smooth, rhythmic movements. The technique improves alignment, balance, and control,  and opens the body to its full range of motion and ease. Practiced regularly the technique aids in preventing muscle and soft tissue injury. Limited to eight students. Dance majors and students who have taken Anatomy for the Performer are given priority.
