THDA 41 - Modern Dance I


This beginning level course is an exploration of the theory, technique, terminology and history of modern dance as a performing art. Participation in a modern dance technique class gives you a unique experience in learning. Through the process of attaining strength, flexibility and coordination, as well as an awareness of space, time and energy, you will be working within your whole self. The mind to body connection can send the spirit soaring while heightening our sensitivity to the senses. Full breathing will support the body systems, and total concentration will allow for a deep immersion into the process of learning to dance (1 Credits)
