Introduction to Choreography

This studio course will introduce students to choreographic processes and questions of movement vocabulary, structure, pacing, orchestration and meaning. Through completing a number of short dances and a substantial final project, the class will explore choreographic forms and innovations found in contemporary dance. Readings and viewings work in tandem with students’ dance-making to fuel debate and analysis of today’s choreographic work and the power of movement to engage in current artistic and political issues.



Past Student Work

Students in the spring 2018 class present their final choreographic projects for “Introduction to Choreography.”
