DESCRIPTION:

Modern dance in America developed to make statements in movement that were relevant to modern times and had a unique American energy. Beginning in the early 20th century, modern dance is as varied as the dancers/ choreographers who have given form to their artistic vision. We will view tapes of dance performances and discuss what we observe–performers such as Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, Jose Limon, Alvin Ailey, Alwin Nikolais, Merce Cunningham and Paul Taylor. In our discussions we learn how a dance can relate to emotional expression, social commentary, and abstract form.
