  3.2: Exploring Music and Dance

Discussion Topic

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR DISCUSSIONS:   Your contributions should be thoughtful and developed.  Answer all parts of the question and use concepts from the course materials.  Use a professional style of communication, with attention to grammar, spelling, and typos; cite your sources.  

Unless your instructor specifies otherwise, choose ONE of the following questions, and give a substantive response to at least two other students.

1.  EXPLORE MUSIC AND DANCE

The readings and videos introduced themes and issues related to exploring music and dance as phenomena of culture.  There are a great many more to consider: children’s music and dance, music and dance for the elderly, music and dance among people with disabilities, or spirituals in African American history. Find a video related to one of these, embed it in your post, and examine one of these areas (or another related topic) in detail and make sure to use at least two concepts, terms etc. about music and dance you or your classmates posted in Discussion 3.1. Underline or bold the vocabulary, concept or technique you use as a interpretative tool in your post. 

2.  CREATE A RINGSHOUT

If you decide to create a Ringshout and can make a video, share a file containing the video and discuss the experience of learning about the Ringshout and the process of creating it.

3.  PARTICIPATE IN A DANCE

Participate in a style of dance that is new to you. Your local community may offer free or low cost opportunities such as contra dancing or line dancing.  If live musicians are present, what instruments are used? Do some research on this style of dance, discussing its cultural context, history and origins as well as your impressions based on your active participation as a dancer. Be sure to embed a video example of this kind of dance in your post. 

4.  EXPLORE SYMPHONY, CHORUS, OR OPERA

Using an Internet search engine, locate the nearest symphony orchestra, chorus (chorale) or opera company to your home or office, or one that you would like to visit in the future.

Share the URL (website location) and describe some of the works being performed this season. Are the works on the programs all by 18th and 19th century European male composers (Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, etc.) or did you find some diversity among the composers?

Check for special programs for families with children or special ticket prices for students. Does the organization have a public outreach program such as the award-winning “Voices Within,” an artist residency program designed by the Los Angeles Master Chorale that teaches fifth grade students how to tap their creative voices to compose and perform their own original songs? http://www.lamc.org/education/voices-within 

If you were to attend one of the performances you have discovered, what two tools from Discussion 3.1 that you or your classmates posted might you find useful to have in mind when viewing the performance and why? Underline or bold the vocabulary, concept or technique you use as a interpretative tool in your post.
