Building upon the choreographic ideas introduced of Dance Composition I, this course explores compositional practices and processes in more depth. Through the coursework, students will research performance making methods, engage various approaches to performance making, and develop methods for crafting their own performance work. In order to begin to define their own dancemaking aesthetics, each student will be asked to create their own set of research questions, which will drive their movement and compositional explorations throughout the semester.
