DNCE 85 MUSIC FOR DANCE

3 Units - 3 hours lecture
Transfers: CSU, UC
This course assists the dancer and/or choreographer by providing practical training in basic music theory and musicianship. It focuses on systematically breaking down and investigating the terminology of and concepts behind "dancer musicality," rhythm and meter, melodic design, basic musical form, notation, and historical style. The course is designed to present the development of music and dance in a historical perspective; to develop through listening an awareness of available musical literature; and to train the dancer/choreographer and musician to work together by developing a common vocabulary and working knowledge of each other's craft.
