    How to Register
  • Bryn Mawr and Haverford or Swarthmore students can register for courses for Academic credit during academic course registration periods on BIONIC.

Dance Courses with Auditions

•  Technique courses do not have auditions although they have required minimum experience for each level. During the first week of classes, instructors will advise students who are not in the appropriate level. The two exceptions are INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED levels of BALLET. All  incoming students interested in taking one of these courses must take a  placement class during orientation week.

  • DANCE ENSEMBLE courses have AUDITIONS that are generally run like a class; no special material needs to be prepared. Auditions are required regardless of whether a student enrolls in the course for academic or PE credit.

ARTD B140 Approaches to Dance: Themes and Perspectives Not offered 2017-18 This course introduces students to dance as a multi-layered, significant and enduring human behavior that ranges from art to play, from ritual to politics, and beyond. It engages students in the creative, critical, and conceptual processes that emerge in response to the study of dance. It also explores the research potential that arises when other areas of academic inquiry, including criticism, ethnology, history and philosophy, interact with dance and dance scholarship. Lectures, discussion, film, video, and guest speakers are included. In lieu of books, students must attend one dance performance (typical costs: $12-30) but may take advantage of free Tri-co performances. Writing Attentive Critical Interpretation (CI)

ARTD B142 Dance Composition: Process and Presence Fall 2017 This dance composition course is open to students with any background and is appropriate for dancers, movers of any kind, those seeking to work creatively in other arts or disciplines including the sciences, and those who are just willing to play and invent. It engages students in exploring and structuring human movement and gesture as a way not only to make art but also to develop creative problem solving skills; explore and enhance embodied approaches to observation, analysis and communication; and learn how to work collaboratively. Students are introduced to improvisation as a tool for researching and sketching choreographic ideas; they engage in movement exercises, viewing of live and filmed work, and discussions that help to sharpen visual analysis and kinesthetic responses; they explore models for open and productive reception and response to one's own work and the work of others. The course includes required readings and viewings but focuses primarily on weekly movement assignments, including solo and collaborative explorations. The processes explored in this course help students to cultivate the awareness and intention necessary to performances of self and encourage the invention of satisfying and effective ways for sharing embodied ideas powerfully with audiences of all sorts. Students may take ARTD B142 Dance Composition: Process and Presence or ARTD B144 Dance Composition: Elements and Craft in any order as a single course or to fulfill minor and major requirements. Concurrent participation in at least one class session per week in any level technique course, either for credit or as an auditor, is required. Additional costs: In lieu of books, readings will be posted on Moodle; students may incur $10-30 in performance ticket fees or transport but may take advantage of free Tri-Co performances. Critical Interpretation (CI)

ARTD B144 Dance Composition: Elements and Craft Spring 2018 This dance composition course develops knowledge and skill in the theory and craft of choreography. Basic elements of dancemaking such as space, timing, shaping, and relationship are explored and refined through structured and open movement experiences. Attention is given to developing movement invention skills and compositional strategies; considering form and structure; investigating music, language, images and objects as sources; experimenting with group design; and broadening critical understanding of their own work and the work of others.

ARTD B267 Diasporic Bodies, Grounding Freedom: The Black/African Dancing Body, Restoration, and Activism. Fall 2017 Diasporic Bodies, Grounding Freedom: The Black/African Dancing Body, Restoration, and Activism take Marronage--the act of escaping from slavery in the Americas to create communities of freedom and autonomy--as its model. This course views Black/African diasporic movement and artistic practices as a form of contemporary marronage, providing spaces of activism and embodied restoration. These thriving, fertilizing spaces, communities, and artists center and reboot, with integrity, the connections among black/African diasporic bodies, traditions, and cultures across oceans and lands. While focusing on the black experience, this course will examine these temporal, Imaginative spaces, claiming them as essential to all people in societies that do not acknowledge multiplicity or diversity as societal norms, and capable of conjuring semi·lost histories waiting to be revived. It will examine marronage in diasporic communities as an effort to ground, re-ground, and free bodies. Together, we will explore other diasporic-based research and approaches to understanding and experiencing embodied restoration and we will also learn a meditative embodiment process with 3 elements: mining, archiving, and witnessing. We will examine literature, animation, and film resources to broaden our dialogue on how interdisciplinary, artistic spaces make fertile foundations for embodied and restorative activism. This course will merge lecture, readings, viewings, and praxis as its main components. No dance experience is necessary but students should dress comfortably to move. In lieu of books, readings will be posted on Moodle and students will be assigned to see a performance (typical costs: $12-30) but may take advantage of free Tri-co performances. A previous dance lecture/seminar course or a course in a relevant discipline such as anthropology, sociology, or history is strongly recommended but not required.
