FA/DANC 1500 3.00   Big Dance Small Space: The Virtual Dance Experience

Course Description:

Big Dance Small Space is designed to provide students with an approach to the appreciation of dance from a global perspective. Creates a fully online, immersive and accessible environment for any space, introducing non-dance majors to a selection of dance forms actively practiced in Canada. In modular form, each module features a practitioner who maintains a strong connection to their cultural heritage through dance. Guided instruction in each dance form is complemented by opportunities to improvise and engage in creative explorations and choreography. Resources for each module may include podcasts, interviews, readings, video recordings and other tools to provide socio-historical context for each form. This course addresses issues such as cultural policies, hybridized and/or hyphenated identity and processes of adaptation and acculturation. Together each dance form is a basis for understanding how dance functions as a bridge to diasporic identity. In addition to learning the movements and culture of multiple dances, students will also have the opportunity to research the dances of their own cultural heritage. No previous dance experience required.
