About the Course:

Students will learn about and discuss a variety of topics related to dance as medium for social interaction between individuals and groups of people. The course will also include dance instruction intended to introduce beginners who have no previous dance experience to Salsa. At the end of the course, students should expect to be both competent at dancing Salsa and knowledgeable about its place in society.

Each week, students are expected to complete the assigned reading and submit a response. In addition to this, students are required to attend a social dance event twice during the semester (in order to foster first-hand experience with social dance) and submit a brief essay about their experiences.

There will be dance pop quizzes and a final group presentation to be performed/presented to the whole class. 

How to Enroll:

There will be a questionaire distributed on the first day of class. It will only be available to the students who attend the first day of class, which will be January 30th, 2012.
