Writing About Dance
In Wendy Oliver’s chapter on Writing About Dance, she discusses the Feldman method for analyzing dance based on Edmund Feldman’s discussion of how to critique visual art. In this assignment, you will select one dance from the February Dance concert and use Feldman’s four-part method to write a two-paragraph critique of the dance. In the following weeks, you will be developing your skills in writing about and critiquing dance. This assignment is an opportunity for you to practice writing about dance, while also providing essential feedback on how to improve your ability to articulate your views on dance.
1. Read Wendy Oliver’s chapter on Writing About Dance, paying particular attention to the Feldman method for writing about dance.
