Contemporary Dance Practices A

Spring 2021

Taught By: Lori Love

Section: A

CRN: 9054

Credits: 2

This course continues the study of practices and principles of contemporary dance, as informed by the particular experience and performance history of each teacher. This semester Nia (Lori) Love will teach contemporary dance practices within the context of the Africanist presence through African Diasporic Forms. A primary focus is to help students find a connection to the floor from which they can stretch and move out into space. Attention is given to educating the body to move with specificity; to sharpening each student's rhythmic, spatial and energetic acuities; and to augmenting each student's range of qualitative possibilities. The course, which utilizes movement practices that are being utilized by some of the field's most progressive choreographers, will give students experience learning choreographed sequences, while also fostering students' ability to self-direct as movers. Classes will meet synchronously via Zoom; asynchronous participation for a limited number of classes can be arranged, as needed. Prerequisite: a previous Contemporary Dance Practices course, or permission of instructor or dance program director is required. Space is limited and priority is given to dance majors and minors.
