This introductory course focuses on the art and craft of dance composition.

Basic elements of choreography—including form, design, motivation, phrasing, gesture, rhythm, dynamics, musical accompaniment, and production basics—are explored through improvisational exercises and experimentation. Additionally, students learn to analyze dance critically through Laban movement analysis (LMA). The class culminates in the presentation of student choreography.
