THEA 141 Social Dances

We study and practice some of the most popular dance forms of the twentieth century. Through theater film and television many of these dances have expressed the spirit and the style and particularly the romantic temper of their times: from the quick steps of the Fred Astaire films to the swing dancing in Malcolm X and A League of Their Own and the tango of The Scent of a Woman. The dances taught include fox trot waltz swing and tango. We strongly recommend this class for our student actors. The course is offered only for grades of Credit/No Credit and may be repeated for credit.
