Description: A dance technique and choreographic repertory class that will focus on contemporary traditions and the repertory of three choreographers, including Peter Chu and Sidra Bell, engaging in the current discourse of contemporary dance. In several four-week modules, students will learn, study, and practice the technique and choreographic language of these artists. Each choreographer's work will be examined based on specific technical approaches and compositional structure employed in the piece, including: historical context, the derivation of movement language, dramaturgy, and the choreographer’s research interests. Each class will begin with a 45-minute class designed to specifically frame the study of each choreographer.
