Learning to create movement phrases, students develop a sense of artistry and dynamic phrasing necessary for performing. Furthering their understanding of and ability to identify the underlying movement principles of modern dance, students hone their technical skills in preparation for transfer or careers in dance. This course is a requirement for the Associate of Arts Degree in Dance and Certificate of Achievement in Dance. This course may be taken once and repeated three times for credit.
