An introduction to Street Dance History and Hip-hop Culture and taught by a renowned choreographer, dancer and street dance historian Rennie Harris. A pioneer in Hip-hop and street dance, Rennie is noted for bringing these dance styles to the concert stage. The course covers the geographic history of prominent East and West Coast street dance styles otherwise known as Hip-hop. Students will also discuss Street and Hip-hop paradigm shifts and will leave with a fundamental knowledge rooted in a theoretical structure that springs from the African Diaspora. With an emphasis placed on the social, political and economic environment in which it was fashioned, we will identify Hip-Hop’s pioneers and innovators and define the terminology and codification of West and East Street dance styles. Dr. Harris will teach the class using a traditional African pedagogical method-story telling to contextualize particular movement vocabulary and aesthetics of Street dance and its history. Questions?
