    Composition // Certificate Program Faculty

    Biography:

    This course is an introduction to the elements of the art and craft of making dances, namely, movement invention and development, use of space, use of time, cohesive distinctive structure, expression, context, intent, use of music, and individual vision. Students will create short studies in response to class assignments and learn to look at their own and others’ work critically and to articulate verbally their responses. The pursuit of individual creativity and skill development will be equally emphasized, and the interplay between them encouraged.
