This course aims at expanding students' choices in relation to space, time, contact and communication. Students are encouraged to be open and available to their partners, approaching each situation without preconceived ideas of their relationship, thus allowing what emerges to evolve.

They will create their own choreographies based on what they have learned during the semester as well as incorporating elements that will result from interdisciplinary collaboration.

Course Content (Syllabus)
In Dance-Movement II students use techniques of physical theatre to expand upon and improve their relationship with space and time as well as with gravity, energy, tension, release and balance. Relationships based on trust and honest communication are achieved through acrobatic exercises, contact improvisation and actions based on rhythm and group communication. Students are encouraged to overcome any fear or hang-up that might impede the free flow of movement and to discover the possibilities of personal expression. Student work individually and in groups and pairs. Furthermore, students realize the importance of breath in communication as they cultivate the relationship of breath to movement and action. Students will have the opportunity to incorporate elements from other disciplines into their final choreographies – actions which are presented at the end of the semester.
