DANCE 23: Movement and Meaning: Dance Studies in Global Comparative Context (CSRE 159M, TAPS 159M, TAPS 259M)

This course introduces students to various approaches to studying dance in a humanities context. We will explore how people create meaning through dance and how dance, in turn, shapes social norms, political institutions, and cultural practices across time and space. The course's structure challenges the Western/non-Western binary that still pervades many academic disciplines by comparing dance forms across the globe on the basis of functional similarities. At the same time, we will keep in mind the unequal power hierarchies shaping our modern world, and therefore we will examine how and why certain forms have become delineated as 'Western' and others as 'world' or 'ethnic,' despite similarities in movement, meaning, or purpose.

DANCE 24: Introduction to Dance in the African Diaspora (AFRICAAM 24, CSRE 24D, TAPS 152D)

This course introduces students to dance as an important cultural force in the African Diaspora. From capoeira in Brazil to dance hall in Jamaica to hip hop in the United States and Ghana, we will analyze dance as a form of resistance to slavery, colonialism, and oppression; as an integral component of community formation; and as a practice that shapes racial, gendered, and national identity. We will explore these topics through readings, film viewings, and movement workshops (no previous dance experience required). Students will have the option to do a creative performance as part of their final project.

DANCE 27: Choreographic Film

Stanford Lecturer and Choreographer Alex Ketley will work with the students on the creation of a new dance for film. The class will consist of a number of rehearsals in the studio where the students will explore Ketley's movement vocabulary. When this movement material is built, the dancers will then take the material throughout the Stanford campus to be filmed with a curiosity about how different contexts and environments effect the quality and presentation of the movement. After the film is shot, Ketley will create the film, but also give all the participating students access to the raw footage in the event that they are interested in making personal edits of the material. Students with a background in ballet, modern, or hip-hop are encouraged to participate. Students with limited dance training are welcome and are encouraged to email the choreographer so that they can have a dialog about what the class will entail. Any questions can be directed to Lecturer Alex Ketley at aketley@stanford.edu.
