PETE 114 GE: Modern Dance Theory

This course is designed to introduce the student to the study of dance as the most fundamental of the arts, involving a direct expression of oneself through the body. The student will explore fundamental movement concepts including time, weight, space, and flow. Contextualization of historical, theoretical, and aesthetic principles will be emphasized. Through practical application and investigation into the relationship between movement elements and the motional principles of efforts, stress and release, and rest and relaxation, the student will learn to relate the inner self to the outer world.
