DHIR 210 Passion, Power, & Creative Process: Unmasking Dance in the Italian Renaissance

From May 26 to June 30, 2018, take part in a course that introduces you to the innovative concepts of principal Italian Renaissance dance masters, artists, and philosophers whose ideas and creations shaped the contemporary forms of ballet and modern dance.

Students also enjoy a field trip to Florence, participate in Perugia’s 1416 Renaissance Festival, and enjoy dance workshops with an Italian teacher who specializes in Renaissance dance. These activities are designed to encourage students to find a fresh approach to movement studies, in order to refine their own expressive potential.

This course requires some movement participation but does not require prior training.
