This course will offer students an in-depth and unique history and dance experience.  The first portion of the course will entail cross-disciplinary study of French history on campus, alongside students studying Dance.  During Spring Break, students will travel to Paris, France.  Both groups of students will explore Parisian urban history and culture, from the Roman era to the twenty-first century.  Dance students will experience dance history through participation in a variety of dance classes.  History students will more closely study the meaning of place, power, and memory in Parisian history.  All students will study artistic forms, from ballet to contemporary dance, in their historical birthplace.  All students will also attend dance performances and visit significant historical sites and museums, which document the artistic evolution of Baroque through modernism in art, dance, and history.  Upon their return, students will be mentored through guided research and reflection projects that encapsulate and provide further meaning to their experiences.

Courses this could be equated to: Dance 427/499 and History 431/531; 499; 677.
