DRAMA 6113 — Ballroom Dancing

.5 Credits
Steven Dougherty

Ballroom dancing engages the actor to explore the ways in which people move through their lives physically and psychologically.  Each dance has a different point of view and tells a different story. This first semester class focuses on increasing muscle memory, as well as on physical and mental presence. The work practices ceremony, grace, body-mind connection, sportsmanship and the equal importance of leading and following. The work culminates in a formal ballroom competition including well-known and highly respected judges and master-of-ceremonies from the professional ballroom world.
