Hello and welcome to Dance History Appreciation. My name is Ms. White and I will be your instructor for this course. Dance History Appreciation is an Elective Course, in which students will study the history of various types of dance. In addition, you will be introduced to the lives of famous dancers, such as Balanchine, Maria Tallchief, Martha Graham, Katherine Dunham, Josephine Baker, Alvin Ailey, and Gregory Hines.
During this course students will:
A-100%-90%, B-89%-80%, C-79%-70%, D-69%-60%, F-Below 60%
Students should maintain a 3-ring binder organized by unit to collect and arrange study materials provided in each unit.
All material for this class will come from sources available on the Internet. Because your success in this course relies on accessing and reading the material, please let your instructor know immediately if a link is faulty or inactive.
You will take an assessment or complete an activity after reading each chapter.
As a final project, students will need to view a dance performance of their choice. If you are not able to view a performance at a public theater, school, or college campus, view the performance on a DVD or on television. Lastly, write a two-three page paper of what you enjoyed about the performance. Make sure to give a description of the scenery, costumes, and your interpretation of the dance performance.
Please feel free to email me when you have a question.
