WRITING REQUIREMENT IN THE DANCE MAJOR:

In addition to their studio and performance studies, all dance majors must successfully complete courses that complement and enhance students' understanding of dance as a diverse and evolving art form.  In these courses, students have the opportunity to practice the three styles of writing in dance that have been identified by the dance faculty as required for the dance major:

           A. Description of observed dance

           B. Expression of the creative experience of dance itself

           C. Critical and analytical research

Students will satisfy the writing requirement in the dance major by successfully completing the following four courses:



Foundational Writing:



DA 227 - Improvisation I AND DA 228 - Choreography I 

 

Intermediate Writing:



DA 230 - Dance and Society: 1600-1920 OR DA 335 - Dance & Society II: 1920-Present 



Advanced Writing:



DA 375 - Senior Dance Capstone I OR DA 371 A-D - Independent Study
