How toPick Your Dance
Review the Watchlists for the dances in the style of Modern Dance, Contemporary Modern Dance, and Dance Theater, and chose a dance within one of those styles about which to write your paper.
Remember to choose ahistoricallyrelevant choreographerthat we have covered by this point in the class. This is because you will need to analyze the phrases of dance through the lenses of historical and cultural content.
NO PAPERS ON MICHEAL JACKSON.
NO PAPERS ON “Revelations,” (‘Wade in the Water,’ ‘Sinner Man,’ etc.) or “Cry” by Ailey. (Other works by Ailey are fine!)
NO PAPERS ON “Lamentations,” or “Heretic” or “Appalachian Spring” by Graham (other works by Graham are fine, or you can compare two).
I’m growing suspicious of papers on “The Infernal Galop” by Bourne; they’re still allowed, but my plagiarism hackles will be up – be original!
Dancesfrom SYTYCD are usually not 3 minutes long, and not historically relevant (yet). They are only permitted with pre-approval.
Your dance does not have to be from these lists, but you must choose a dance from one of these styles.Trust me – I’ve graded (literally)thousandsof these essays, and it does make it highly unlikely that you will earn a B or above if you start out with a dance that is created for entertainment value, without the multiple layers of high art.
Now — there are exceptions (maybe 3% of the papers each semester?)!
That’s part of what the next step is about; if you think you can cover all of the talking points in your paper while writing about a Jazz or , or even a SYTYCD dance, or anything else.
