Paul D. Matteson (Section 01)


This course will provide strategies and approaches for developing choreography. Solo, duet and small group exercises in and out of class will generate inventive movement that will be the source material for each student in the making of a new dance. These dances will be performed in various stages of development throughout the semester as works-in-progress. Emphasis will be placed on continuous revision and a willingness to throw the creative process into the public forum as a means of gaining information for further work. Two two-hour class meetings per week and weekly lab/rehearsals. 

Consent of the instructor is required for students without a previous dance composition course.  Limited to 12 students. Spring semester.  Professor Matteson.

If Overenrolled: students with previous dance composition courses will be given priority; permission of instructor required for students without previous dance composition course
