DCE 100: Unit 4: Study Guide Lecture 13:  Dance can be a reflection of identity  Dance can be used by choreographers to reflect some aspects of culture and personal identity  One dancer will tend towards precise movements, another towards movements tossed out and not quite defined  we can't truly know a person through their movement, a person's movement choices, both conscious and unconscious, are tied to the body's construction, to personal affinities, to how that person relates to the world around them, and to that person's physical and psychological history  All human beings move with a set of movement preferences Bill T Jones  Bill T. Jones' attained success as a choreographer with his late partner and collaborator, Arnie Zane  In 1982, they established the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company  Arne Zane died of AIDS before the work was completed (premiered in 1990)  Jones, a big name in the modern dance world, his influences include Alvin Ailey, Martha Graham and Jose Limon, but his style is unique Bill T. Jones: Dancing to the Promised Land  About differences in race, gender, and sexual identity  Racial Disparity in Dance  People of color are underrepresented in major and mid-level modern and ballet companies in the United States  If you were to take a ballet or modern dance class in New York City, you would find colored people underrepresented  1950s saw a new advent of black concert dance companies  it reflected the persistent pattern of segregation in American society  People tried to rationalize it in how black bodies would not look the same in white tutus, and therefor would disrupt the uniformity of the all white ballet companies, while others said it was because of socioeconomic backgrounds, meaning that the black dancers weren’t trained as well because they were from lower socioeconomic backgrounds Lecture 14: “In the last three to four decades, social dance in popular culture has come to reflect the diversity of culture that has developed within the United States.” Lecture 15: Investments in dance pay off for communities because of the culture - the individuals, businesses and institutions - that surround it, i.e. going out to dinner at local venues before a show, renting out a theatre and paying a stage crew, booking agents, accountants, etc. Professions  Dance Therapist o "Dance/movement therapy can be a powerful tool for stress management and the prevention of physical and mental health problems. Dance/movement therapists integrate the dancer's special knowledge of the body, movement, and expression with the skills of psychotherapy, counseling, and rehabilitation to help individuals with a wide array of treatment needs. Social, emotional, cognitive, and/or physical problems can be addressed through DMT via group and individual sessions in many different types of settings from hospitals and clinics to schools. The fact that dance/movement therapists are immersed in the language of the body, rather than focusing solely on the verbal, lends characteristics to their work that set it apart from other types of therapy." o Requires and undergraduate degree in both psychology and dance, and a masters degree for the title of DTR  Dance Anthropologist o Social science to study human behavior, culture, and their development o They uses the scientific method on dance cultures o Requires a PHD o Also called ethnochoreology and dance ethnology  Dance and Technology o Pre recorded segments and backgrounds o ASU’s intelligent Stage: it has sensors on stage, so that different movements can trigger different lights or sounds o Engineers are required for the implementation of many of the technological aspects of dance  Medical Professions o Orthopedic physicians and physical therapists also do research specific to the rehabilitation and recovery of injured dancers o The International Association for Dance Medicine and Science (IADMS) does work to progress the ability of medical professionals to treat dances in the same manner they would professional athletes  Musicians o Needed in both the classroom (when they can afford it) and on stage o Choreographers either work wit a pre-recorded piece, or have a piece of music created for their work, when this occurs, it is a true collaboration between the musician and the choreographer Dancing in the Seats Article  Dancing and music have always been a communal activity; only in the 17 century did it begin to become something that you sat and watched  Music and movement have a connection that shows up on brain scans, releasing specific levels of dopamine
