This course teaches students how to understand and appreciate the performing arts, including music and theater. Students learn to approach performance art from the perspective of the world in which it was created, and the role performing arts continue to play in our world. Students learn to identify the formal elements of performing arts, to articulate their art experiences, examining both in a social and historical context and drawing connections with other arts. Students study important elements, forms and styles, including some examples from non- Western cultures.
