DANCE 107: Disruptive Choreography: Student Choreographers Creating Innovative Work

Collaboratively taught by choreographers and Stanford dance faculty Alex Ketley and Diane Frank, this is a body-based investigation and studio class. As a class we will take a conspiratorial approach toward choreographic processes that insure breakthrough moments of innovation as students investigate, create, and eventually perform their own dance works. Both instructors have a wide range of choreographic experience which they will use to guide students through a myriad of approaches they can deploy when devising new dance and physical performance. Pre-requisite: A curiosity about making your own work and diversifying your understanding of movement generation and the infinite possible forms dances can take. Dancers of all genres, training backgrounds, and levels of experience are strongly encouraged to enroll. The quarter of studio exploration work will culminate in a public performance of the created works during the last week of class.

DANCE 148: Beginning/Intermediate Ballet

Intermediate Ballet at Stanford is designed for students who have done ballet in their past, but maybe have stepped away from the form for awhile. The class focuses on technique, musicality, vocabulary, coordination and artistic choice. The class looks at ballet as an enduring and vibrant movement system that can be used for classical purposes or as a way to strengthen and diversify the movement vocabulary inherent in other dance forms like modern, hip-hop, or social dancing. Any questions can be directed to Lecturer Alex Ketley at aketley@stanford.edu.

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

DANCE 152: Introduction to Improvisation in Dance: From Salsa to Vodun to Tap Dance (AFRICAAM 52, CSRE 152, TAPS 152)

This seminar introduces students to Dance Studies by exploring the topic of improvisation, a central concept in multiple genres of dance and music. We will survey a range of improvised dance forms¿from salsa to vodun to tap dance¿through readings, video viewings, discussion, and movement exercises (no previous dance experience required). When studying each genre, we will examine how race, gender, sexuality, citizenship, and other power structures affect the practices and theorizations of improvisation. Topics include community and identity formation; questions of technique versus ¿natural¿ ability; improvisation as a spiritual practice; and the role of history in improvisers¿ quest for spontaneity. Course material will focus on improvised dance, but we will also read pertinent literature in jazz music, theatre, and the law.
