Princeton Dance Festival — Choreography Workshop III *

This Dance course leads up to performances in the Princeton Dance Festival at the end of the fall semester.

Choreography Workshop III extends students’ approaches to choreographic research by asking them to create complete works on dancers other than themselves.  Students will consider how to transfer their vision to an ensemble and learn to give directives to groups that further their process.  By focusing on developing an initial idea into a complete work, students will question their understanding of development and challenge themselves in new directions. Readings and viewings inform studio practice and invite students to wrestle with issues debated by today’s dance artists.

* In these workshop courses with two components (Choreography/Repertory, A/B), students study technique and learn contemporary repertory or collaborate on the creation of new work with professional choreographers. Students also create their own dances and learn about choreographic practices and history
