I will be teaching a New Class at Mills for the Fall Semester: Aztec Dance and Culture.
It will be DNC 180 C and will take place Tues/Thurs, 1-2:15pm.
In this course you will learn the fundamental techniques, styles, rhythms, and choreographies of Aztec Dance, along with its history, cultural symbols, and Pan-Indian/Intertribal relationship.
This will be a fun and energetic Dance Class, with history/lecture woven into the class setting to provide appropriate cultural understanding and background.
If you are curious about Native American Dance, Culture, History, Immigration, Relationships, and Moving Bodies, then this course would be a great addition to you eduction.
