Modern Dance I (Standard)

Credits: 1

The modern dance technique of Martha Graham is the basis of this class, which progresses carefully from a basic and thorough introduction to an energetic, challenging, and healthful movement experience. Classes are exciting, intense, rigorous, and challenging as they focus on correct technique as well as proper body conditioning and toning. The course is appropriate for novice dancers, as well as experienced dancers who are unfamiliar with Graham technique. Athletes in any sport can benefit dramatically from this course. Some evening and afternoon attendance at dance performances and rehearsals will be required. Completion of one credit of Modern Dance results in the waiver of one credit of physical education, but may not be substituted for Introduction to Physical Education.

 

Dance I may be taken multiple times for credit.
