This course will focus on 20th Century vernacular and concert performance. It will examine the influences of African-American vernacular dance on 20th Century social and concert dance by identifying specific movement motifs and concepts, such as rhythm, improvisation, syncopation, balanced asymmetry and body carriage. It will bring forward the clear retention of African Culture rooted deeply in the American aesthetic, as evidenced in the work of major choreographers George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins, Martha Graham and Jack Cole.
