PROPOSED COURSE NUMBER and/or TITLE: No Change PROPOSED COURSE DESCRIPTION: TAD 311 MODERN DANCE/COMPOSITION III Intensive work in movement principles, improvisation, and progressively more advanced dance technique. Creativity in movement invention and composition are emphasized and historically linked to the post-modern dance era. Includes performance critiques and text readings. May be repeated once for credit. Prerequisite: TAD 112 or IATAD 113, TAD 212, or permission of instructor. Fall. Updated 18 April 2008 LEARNING OUTCOMES: There are no changes from the last approval Demonstrate healthy alignment, skeletal and breath support, release technique, 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. Express confidence when experimenting within the improvisational format. Demonstrate intermediate level competency in modern dance technique. Employ the composition elements found historically in non-literal post-modern choreography. Design and guide a theme based improvisation lesson plan. Integrate duet concepts such as shadowing, ghosting, and partnering within improvisation performance. Think and write critically in evaluating the audience experience. Correlate practical experience with contemporary professional dance performances. Apply critical analysis to peer and professional performance and choreography. 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 311 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 311. RESOURCES: No Change ADVISORY OPINIONS: N/A
