D-ST 74910 - Dance Composition for Musical Theater
This course will focus on conceiving and creating choreography for musical theatre productions. In theatre, members of the creative team are all storytellers: the writer, the director, the designers and, often most importantly, the choreographer. Students will learn the skills needed for creating staging and choreography for theatre that furthers the understanding of context, character, storytelling and the purpose of dance sequences. Knowing that the students taking this course enter with a dance vocabulary of ballet, jazz, modern, tap, acrobatics and/or street dances, this course will add to the student’s toolbox by providing a greater understanding of how to best use movement and dance in musical theatre.
