The College of New Jersey Offers its Very First Dance Class!

The College of New Jersey offers its very first dance class, Dance and Movement Fundamentals, starting in the Fall of 2012. Held on Mondays and Thursdays from 12:30 PM- 1:50 PM, the two-credit course will be taught by Risa Kaplowitz of DanceVision Inc.

The course explores dance as cultural, spiritual and aesthetic expression and develops a sense of body awareness and alignment. Several styles of dance will be studied including; Bollywood, flamenco, capoeira, tap, hip-hop, and classical and contemporary ballet.

Risa Kaplowitz co-founded DanceVision with former American Ballet Theater ballerina, Susan Jaffe and is the co-founder and Director of Princeton Dance and Theater Studio. She also founded D.A.N.C.E. (Dance As a Necessary Component of Education), an outreach program that brings dance to New Jersey schools. She was a member of Houston Ballet and Manhattan Ballet and performed with Pennsylvania Ballet and Metropolitan Opera Ballet.

As a two-credit, repeatable course with the VPA prefix, two semesters of the course will satisfy one course unit of the Literary, Visual and Performing Arts breadth requirement.
