To gain some context for how the basic movement patterns we're developing in class could be used in performance, view "A Few Videos of Contemporary Modern Dance" in the Resources section of the course page. The videos are all brief excerpts (1-5 minutes) that give you a taste of a particular choreographer's movement style.

Think about which of the movement selections are the most compelling to you. Watch these parts again and figure out why you are drawn to them.

What skills do the dancers in these selections appear to have?

Articulate your responses to the above questions in at least one page (typed, double spaced), due in class on Monday Sept. 19 or by email before class.
