THEA 252 - Dance for Musical Theatre

(3 credits)
This course is a practical survey of several of the major choreographic influences in the American Musical Theatre as a means towards studying the major approaches to dance within the genre. Students will study and practice choreography of key figures such as Helen Tamiris, Jack Cole, Jerome Robbins, Bob Fosse and Twyla Tharp. Combinations of original choreography will be taught, and students will present choreographic projects based on the work of these and other choreographers in the genre. Previous dance experience is strongly advised.
