DNCE 1343: Urban & Street Dance Forms 1: Introduction

1 Credit

We study the origins of Hip Hop dance and how it has evolved to the current incarnations of the form. There is also a focus on Hip Hop culture as a whole and we have many discussions about issues of identity, relation to power, appropriation, and youth culture. The specific forms of movement in this course are toprocking, rocking, breakdancing (breaking), New Jack Swing, and house dance. Some questions to focus on: What is Hip Hop dance? Where does it originate? Who created Hip Hop artistic expressions? What voices/bodies are heard/seen or not heard/not seen in the films assigned?
