Dance Choreography & Somatics
This course focuses on the exploration and application of dance choreography. Students enrolled in this course will participate in a variety of improvisational exercises independently, in duets or small groups. Students will participate, develop, and reflect on guided choreographic exercises that lead to independent dance studies.

Dancers will participate in an extensive choreographic project that will take place in a formal concert setting. Students will be exposed to the following: guest artists, master classes, workshops, performances, festivals, and more. Course is open to Junior and Senior (future Orchesis) students. Course is a full year involvement and requires extracurricular participation year round. Department chair approval maybe required.
