Intermediate Dance (VPA)

This course is designed for students with moderate dance experience. The curriculum focuses on expanding the students’ exposure to movement and broadening their understanding of the concepts taught in Fundamentals of Dance. Students will continue to further develop their skill in the genres of jazz, modern/contemporary, ballet and lyrical, with emphasis on transitional steps, as well as developing and refining stylized moves. Complex exercises, combining a variety of steps are the focus of this class. Intermediate turns, leaps, and extensions are taught, and improvisation is introduced. The final project requires a student-choreographed dance presentation. Emphasis is placed on public performance and participation in the Spring Dance Showcase is required. The first semester of this course may be taken for five credits If requesting to take this course as a semester offering, this should be clearly indicated on the “Course Request Form” by noting (SEM) next to course.
