Javanese dance is one of the great classical dance forms in the world with a rich and exciting repertory of works. Even if you have never danced before, here is your chance to learn an accessible and fascinating dance form. Important choreographers from Ruth St. Denis and Mark Morris have been captivated and inspired by its beauty, grace and power. Javanese dance depicts ancient epic stories that have been told and re-told for centuries and still are vital tropes in the lives of Asians today. Students who take this course will have a unique and exciting opportunity to participate in a performance of a Javanese dance drama based on the Islamic story Amir Hamzah created by the distinguished Visiting Professor F. X. Widaryanto, who teaches dance at a preeminent conservatory of dance and gamelan music in Bandung, Indonesia. The performance will be accompanied by live music played on the Javanese gamelan ensemble. No prior dance experience necessary. Sign up for the advanced class if you have any experience at all doing Javanese dance. For information contact Susan Walton swalton@umich.edu.
