Through meetings weekly with various professors and professionals in the field, each student will be guided in drawing from their studies in various fields at the university. Emphasis is in integrating the student?s body of knowledge with their experience and community in the five college dance department. Workshops and presentations in lighting, staging, videotaping, creativity, collaboration, and production to help each student prepare the most exciting work possible for the concert stage. Each week students will have a seminar in a different area affecting choreography and choreographic choices, with reading, writing, and journaling assignments, that will help students reflect on their own artistic process, and discover the many resources on and off-campus. Students will use knowledge from previous courses taken across campus, from music and art classes, to writing, science, and analytical reasoning courses. Oral communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and interdisciplinary perspective-taking at a more advanced level will be part of the weekly workshops. Satisfies the Integrative Experience requirement for BA-Dance and BFA-Dance majors.
