Unit 2 focused on the packet and worksheet from Doris Humphrey’s “The Art of Making Dances”. Your packet and worksheet are your study guide for this test!
Chapter 1 – focused on historical context in its relationship to the development of choreography theory. This chapter also focused on the importance of the first half of the twentieth century and how the incredible developments of that time period affected dance, as well as all other art forms.
Chapter 2 – focused on the ideal traits and characteristics of choreographers. We discussed several of these in our EQs over the past couple of weeks and why they matter.
Review packet, worksheet, notes from review session and EQs in your journal to study for the Jazz portion of the Unit 2 test.
Also review Dance Composition terms from Unit 1 – specifically the different levels for dance and what determines each level, and the different pathways in space for movement.
