Dance and Media Communications II

Course Description

Dance and Media Communications II builds on the foundational dance and technology skills taught in the Dance and Media Communications I survey course and provides opportunities for students to apply and synthesize knowledge and skills through relevant, real-world projects. Students will explore dance-related technical professions and components of media production. The course provides hands-on, experiential learning in dance, including movement, music, and choreography integrated with instruction focused on technology applications, media literacy, and 21st century skills. A key focus of the course is on ways to bridge traditional movement with current technology applications to create new media such as animations, digital images, multimedia presentation, digital video, websites, and interactive performances. Students will also develop a deeper understanding of self along with a broader worldview by creating, performing, analyzing, and critiquing dance performance. Students in this course will document their work during the course in a professional-level digital portfolio.
