TAPS 11: Introduction to Dance Studies (CSRE 11, DANCE 11, FEMGEN 11)

This class is an introduction to dance studies and the complex meanings bodily performances carry both onstage and off. Using critical frames drawn from dance criticism, history and ethnography and performance studies, and readings from cultural studies, dance, theater and critical theory, the class explores how performing bodies make meanings. We will read theoretical and historical texts and recorded dance as a means of developing tools for viewing and analyzing dance and understanding its place in larger social, cultural, and political structures. Special attention will be given to new turns in queer and feminist dance studies. TAPS 11 has been certified to fulfill the Writing in the Major (WIM) requirement.

TAPS 21S: StoryCraft: On Relationships (FEMGEN 21S)

Do we need love? And if so, what does it look like? In this class, students will learn about relationships from the inside out: through an examination and telling of their lived experiences. We will explore various perspectives on intimacy and relationships that illuminate different aspects of our lives, and then dive into our own stories to discover the many facets of intimacy. Due to the personal nature of the topic, we will emphasize safety, trust, and confidentiality throughout. The class offers the structure and guidance to 1) mine your life for stories, 2) craft the structure and shape of your stories, and 3) perform with presence, authenticity, and connection.

TAPS 26: Dancing Theories of Race (CSRE 26, DANCE 26)

What can choreography and movement practice lend a comparative understanding of race studies? Pairing critical theory in race studies with dance performance, this course moves through ten units to scaffold a nuanced orientation toward race and dance that moves beyond questions of representation toward agency, animation, and action. Each week centers one key dance performance alongside one formative text in comparative race studies to allow for close-analysis and critical interpretation, featuring choreographers such as Alvin Ailey, Trisha Brown, Lenora Lee, and Ralph Lemon alongside theorists like Frantz Fanon, Cedric Robinson, Edward Said, Patricia Collins, and Jose Muñoz. Through interdisciplinary modes of knowing, we will pair text and movement through the dancing body to (re)consider the social, historical, and political formations of race and its presentation on and off stage.
