DANC 140 - Dance Cultures and Subcultures

Unit(s): 4

This intergenerational course brings Fromm Institute students and USF students together in an introduction to dance’s culture-making functions. Taking an embodied approach to learning about popular dance in American society, with a focus on current and historical in the SF Bay Area, the course illuminates how dance practices inform and are informed by larger national and international values. The course includes historical/scholarly readings, guest lectures by dance professionals, videos, discussions, attendance at live events, and yes, dancing! Areas of study may include ballroom, tango, lindyhop, ballet, street dance, club/drag performance, dance film, Broadway musicals, and dance on social media. No prior dance experience required.
