Catalog Description:
Untitled document
This course is for dancers of all levels who want to gain performance and basic dance teaching experience through informal performances and teaching demonstrations held at various events on and off campus. The intent of the performances and demonstrations is to share dance with audience members who may not otherwise experience dance as a performance art. In the demonstrations, students teach a basic dance combination (short dance sequence) to audience participants. Performance settings may include alternative schools, community centers, assisted living facilities, and campus events. Each performance is distinct and geared toward the event, audience, and/or venue. Repeating students have the opportunity to take leadership positions during the teaching demonstrations as well as choreograph for the events.
