Large Scale change to Numbering of DAN Modern courses
This proposal is part of course changes to align with revisions in the BFA in Dance and the BA in Dance Studies degrees.
We request to update the numerical levels of Modern classes to be consistent with numbering of other techniques; ie. Ballet and Jazz. We also propose removing "DANCE TECHNIQUE" from the titles to be more consistent with the other course revisions proposed in the Program revision. As all dance courses ( ballet, jazz, tap, hip-hip) apply technique, the current title is redundant.
This change provides consistency and avoids numerical duplication with newly created courses.
Updating the numbering of courses will align with other revisions and eliminates duplication. Another proposal has created (new) courses titled Modern 1A and Modern 2A.
This proposal requests to update the numbering of all three- credit Modern dance courses to align with changes and continue the numbering sequentially. The change also replaces all Roman numerals with Arabic numerals, to be consistent. Removing "DANCE TECHNIQUE" from the titles will be consistent with the other course revisions proposed in the Program revision.
Modification does not change course content, learning outcomes, nor credit hours.
Incoming Freshmen dancers would still be placed in the same course.
For example, incoming dancers placed into the current DAN 17051: Modern Dance Technique I-A would be placed into the renumbered DAN 17051: Modern 3A
For Fall 2021- The revised course titles would be:
DAN 17051 MODERN 3A
DAN 17151 MODERN 3B
DAN 27071 MODERN 4A
DAN 27171 MODERN 4B
DAN 37068 MODERN 5A
DAN 37168 MODERN 5B
DAN 17051 - MODERN 3A
DAN 17151 - MODERN 3B
DAN 27071 - MODERN 4A
DAN 27171 - MODERN 4B
DAN 37068 - MODERN 5A
DAN 37168 - MODERN 5B
