A class/workshop based on each participant’s investigation of dance as part of their cultural expression. Together, the aim is that all participants will contribute to a blend of cumulative cultural expressions, and how it could “speak” to our backgrounds, or one that we are all curious about. This class/workshop is designed to be an overview of culture through dance performance and dance history, and aims to introduce and uncover some of the chronology, the choreographic approaches, plus forms, styles and techniques, which have shaped the way we look at, talk and write about some cultural dances. Discussions will look at the contributions of leaders in these forms that connect to current-day translations of varied vernacular forms, practices and performance.
