This advanced studio course compares training, practice, and performance methods of diverse approaches to the body, community, and kinaesthetic values in contemporary dance. Students will study intensively in Umfundalai, developed by Dr. Kariamu Welsh, Flying Low, created David Zambrano, with Abby Zbikowski in her hyper afro-punk hip-hop technique, alongside classes that build analytic, reflexive, and creative processes. Selected readings and viewing assignments provide historical and theoretical support to examine how dance and movement training fuels individual development, choreographic process, and aesthetic research.
