PROPOSED COURSE NUMBER and/or TITLE: No Change PROPOSED COURSE DESCRIPTION: TAD 212 MODERN DANCE/COMPOSITION II A continuation in the study and experience of modern dance as an art form through the development of dance technique and further exploration of movement, composition, and performance principles. Includes modern dance technique, partnering and contact improvisation, and development of the choreographic craft. May be repeated once for credit. Prerequisite: TAD 112 or IATAD 113, or permission of instructor. Fall, Spring. Updated 18 April 2008 LEARNING OUTCOMES: There are no changes from the last approval . Demonstrate healthy alignment, skeletal and breath support, body part initiation, dynamic use of space (general awareness of their bodies as instruments of dance). Consider and reconstruct diverse choreographic points of view imaginatively and accurately within group assignments. Apply and integrate basic movement vocabulary of modern dance technique. Apply basic understanding of thematic intention. Employ the rudiments of dance composition in reference to non-dance creative art forms such as poetry, painting, and sculpture. Display confidence with elementary partnering in contact improvisation. Integrate partnering, inversion, motif development in choreography and performance. Think and write critically in evaluating the audience experience. Correlate practical experience with contemporary professional dance performances. Critically discuss performance and choreography using objective, detailed descriptions, and discipline based analytic vocabulary. Articulate and defend a specific point of view in discussions. RATIONALE: IATAD 113 is a relatively new course in our program and was not available for pre-requisite permission when the 4-credit proposal for TAD 212 was accepted (the current catalog version). IATAD 113 is a different course from TAD 112, however it will provide the same necessary foundation for students to proceed to TAD 212. RESOURCES: No Change ADVISORY OPINIONS: N/A
