The Dance Department provides students with the opportunity to study both the theory and practice of dance, exploring dance as a source of personal expression and cultural knowledge.
Rationale for Course Numbering
DAN 101 and DAN 240 are introductory-level classes that are open to all students. DAN 101: Introduction to Dance provides a classroom-based intruduction to issues and theories in the practice and performance of dance. DAN 240: Modern Dance Technique I, a practice-based class, introduces the principles and techniques of Modern Dance.
Subsequent courses build on the work and ideas introduced in these classes.
