Saturday Dance Sampler
This course is for dancers who want to dance and improvise more musically. Through the anatomy of meters, and various dance rhythms (Western and non-Western), we learn about musical concepts through moving. Topics to explore include: (1) When we suspend a movement in the air, what actually happens musically? (2) Jose Limon talks about succession. How can we approach “succession” through our understanding of the musical concept of "sequence"? (3) In some cultures, dancers count 1-2-3-4. Musicians often find it confusing as they perceive music through macro beats, meter and phrasing. Can we establish a common vocabulary? (4) Laban talks about "space," how can we make better use of space through our understanding of melodic direction? (5) Is dance and music two separate fields after all? Can we find common ground? In this course, we will choreograph a piece together using the tools of non-chord tones, sequence, phrasing, and melodic direction.
