How does the social production of dance reflect its historical context?  What is the meaning of the "beautiful" in dance?  Beginning with 16th century court dances, we will explore how aesthetics have been aligned both with and against politics in various periods and genres of the performing body, looking at dance as insiders diplomacy and outsiders rebellion.  Is postmodern dance a discouse of traditions?  This course is designed to promote a critical appreciation of dance, its values and its ambitions, by developing a historical and cultural understanding.
