Introduction to the practice of dance writing through an aesthetic-comparative, critical and analytic lens. By the completion of this course, successful students will be able to write coherently about dance as a form of art; understand cultural and ethical considerations in dance practice; reflect on their own dance practice through a critical lens. We will examine both creative and critical writing styles and attempt to write from both perspectives. Each workshop session will conclude with practical advice for teachers interested in presenting this material to their students.
This workshop can be done in-person or online. It lasts 2 hours but can be longer by request to get a more in-depth overview of the topic.
