Rationale for Knowledge of the Disciplines - Dance is the universal, unspoken language of the body that is common to all people in the global community, Jazz dance is a distinctly American form of dance that involves all the arts including music, theatre, and visual production values, Students in Jazz will actively participate by dancing in a variety of traditional, modern, and contemporary jazz styles. Through this participation and supplemental lectures, discussions, video viewings, students will learn how to critically view their own Jazz performances and those of others. Students will also learn codified Jazz vocabulary, learn how to embody that vocabulary kinesthetically, and learn how to creatively and critically problem-solve with Jazz movement, Students will also learn the history of the art form. Therefore, an inquiry into Jazz dance, through DANC 113L1 (Jazz I) is included in the General Education  curriculum in the Knowledge of the Disciplines - Arts  category.
