Dance coursework fosters an intensive creative process, offers extensive technical training and performing experience, and promotes rigorous intellectual practices.

This June, the Department of Theatre Arts & Dance presents the two-week Global Body Dance Intensive (DNCE 3701, 2 credits). The intensive is taught by lecturer and dancer Michel Kouakou, director of the contemporary dance company Daara Dance. The intensive offers contemporary technique mixed with Afro fusion and live drumming by Guei Caph, a master drummer from west Africa. The workshop will emphasize a unique way for dancers to embrace a singular language while anticipating the flow of their movement.
