Modern Dance Theory & Composition – Online Course
February 27, 2023 - April 9, 2023
As a teacher, what long term dance learning or enduring understanding do you wish to pass on to your students regarding modern dance? As a choreographer, do you know the lineage, from where your personal expressive style is rooted and developed, of your modern dance style? As a performer, how can an understanding of modern dance styles aid in clarity of execution in repertory pieces? From where do we develop our personal movement preferences and expressive capabilities? What or who has influenced these preferences and capabilities? In this online course from NDEO, we will engage in research and reflection on these questions. Even if you are a “rebel”, as opposed to one devoted to passing on a legacy, you need to know from what or whom you are rebelling. By applying a known family genealogy, you deepen your sense of identity and connection, and so knowing the modern dance historical genealogy gives a deeper sense of your place in the modern dance world and can thereby improve your teaching. LIMITED SPACE AVAILABLE – Registration Deadline 2/23. NDEO Member Tuition is $295; Non-Member Tuition is $370. Visit ndeo.org/opdi-m13
