DANCE 25: Studio to Stage: Student Choreography Projects

Make your own dance! In Studio-to-Stage, student choreographers propose, develop, rehearse, and perform their own dances under the close guidance of a faculty mentor. Together, mentor and dance maker discover rehearsal processes that will support and realize the proposed work, including movement investigation, music/sound choices, costuming, and lighting. The course culminates in a group concert showing. Dance is broadly defined as any intentional movement, including fusion forms and innovation. Dance makers of all levels, styles, and training backgrounds are strongly encouraged to enroll. Concert format, logistics, and level of theatrical production will be determined by the collective ambition and imagination of the participants. TAPS will provide some technical support towards the culminating showing of works.

DANCE 149: Advanced Ballet

Advanced Ballet at Stanford is offered for students who are interested in rigorous, complex, and artistically compelling ballet training. The class focuses on technique, but in the broad sense of how ballet as a movement system can be used for a wide range of dance disciplines. The class honors the historical training legacy that defines classical ballet, but is in no way shackled to that history in an antiquated fashion. The students are encouraged to explore the form as artists, to question its foundations, and find their own sense of agency within classical dance. Students with a strong background in ballet are encouraged to come, but also students with less ballet training are welcome as long as they have an email dialog with the lecturer beforehand. Any questions can be directed to Lecturer Alex Ketley at aketley@stanford.edu
