DANC 120 Repertory Research Module: Balanchine And Ballet in America

College of Performing Arts

1 credit 22.5 hours
100 level undergraduate course

Students will experience legendary choreographer George Balanchine’s masterpiece Serenade,
considered by many to be the birth of American ballet and originally choreographed as a lesson
in stage technique. Students will learn and then recreate portions of the ballet, deeply
investigating movement phrases in a group setting. The course invites students to make
direct connections between their studio practice courses and the American style of this seminal
work. The course will culminate with an informal studio sharing. This course is open to all
students in the School of Dance.

This course may be completed 2 times for credit.
