DNCE 110 - (CP) Irish Dance Steps and Studies

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
This course offers an in-depth look at both the cultural history and contemporary practice of Irish dance.  We will divide our time between learning traditional Irish step dances and analyzing the effects of nationalism, religion, emigration, and globalization on the dance’s form and function. We will also survey the history of ballet in Ireland and examine the country’s burgeoning contemporary dance scene. Independent research projects on local Irish dance schools, sessions, or performances will enable students to take advantage of our proximity to New York’s thriving Irish music and dance community.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Same as IRE 110 . May be repeated for credit.
