Course Description This course tells the history of race in 20th- and 21st-century America, indeed queries the very concept of race, by focusing on contributions by artists of color to a range of dance forms, including ballet, movie musicals, music videos, and experimental dance. How does dance express everything from “yellow peril,” to red power, to black joy? How do specific choreographies help produce racial and ethnic identities? In exploring these questions, the course treats “choreography” as a broad conceptual category illuminating the role of moving bodies in histories of immigration and segregation, empowerment and civil rights, and shows what new vantages the study of choreography can contribute to critical race theory.
