Great Britain’s popular dance group “Diversity” is based in London. Their highly energetic and perfectly synchronized moves awe and inspire. In this seminar students explore the world of dance. How does the style of dance convey meaning? What role does individual ability, teamwork, and common purpose play when performing in a troupe? This highly active seminar still allows for reflection as students consider personal expression, cultural context, and points of intersection.
