How is it possible for humans to move in the multitude of ways that we do? This studio/seminar course asks the mover to consider and embody anatomical information as a springboard for dancing. Students explore how the body functions through actions and interactions of its structures, while utilizing a possibilities-in-the-field approach to study and embody some of the varied interpretations that can arise from the same set of anatomical facts. Class time will be divided between study of anatomy and kinesthetic information and concepts, and engaging with the material experientially through movement and touch. Required reading and additional research assignments will explore topics related to kinesthetic anatomy and somatic movement approaches. Space is limited and priority is given to dance majors and minors. Prerequisites: None.
