UWM in New Orleans: UWinteriM 2011
Course DescriptionThis course is designed to give students an opportunity to explore interdisciplinary and foundational learning experiences in the areas of dance through a site-specific trip to New Orleans. This includes all aspects of dance, including music, art, religion, historical and social context and production. Students will have the opportunity to examine how New Orleans, fragmented by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, is rediscovering the artistic roots that once bound their community together. It will be a reflection on centuries-old traditions and how the impact of these natural catastrophes changed local artistic communities.
