      Course Description
    Appreciating Dance is a course designed for non-majors and meets the general education arts requirement for students majoring in other areas. The central purpose of the course is the development of the students responsiveness to dance. DAC 104 is an introduction to the social, historical, and expressive aspects of dance and explores the evolving roles of dancer, choreographer, and spectator through the study of masterworks in different genres and eras of dance. In this course, students are required to see three live performances outside of class and attend all classes which include discussions on historical and critical readings, video-illustrated lectures led by the instructor, guest-lectures, and interactive exercises. This course engages students in evolving discussions of concert and social dance, as we discover the ways in which performances have changed for both creators and audiences. Students will develop a responsiveness to dance as a form of communication and personal expression and understand how dance reflects and comments on society.
