Bard to Ballet: Shakespeare & Dance

This course follows Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and looks at the involvement of dance within classical works. Each session would include discussion and review. In the final class, a dialogue will occur about what has been shown and its relationship to the play. Although the class has no homework, class enrollees are requested to read the play to familiarize themselves with plot and character before first class.
