PCA 221-DA - Latin Dances, African Roots


Min Units: 3
Max Units: 3
An introduction to and overview of the national dances of Cuba, Brazil, Argentina, and Peru. We will study the influence of indigenous cultures, colonization, and the Atlantic slave trade on the development of dances such as samba, rumba, tango, capoeira, and popular dance and culture, as well as examining current practice in light of the political and social changes that have occurred in these countries since 1900. We will approach the course subject using films, texts, and, of course, dancing. We will gain first-hand knowledge of, and appreciation for, dance in these cultures and how it relates to an appreciation of dance in our culture. All students are welcome. (U) Occasionally
