There are seats in this dynamic, varied course for you. Learn how performing arts and the arts more generally can engage people, from youngsters in school to the elderly. Cross-referenced with Education. This 1.00-credit seminar course will be taught by our new visiting assistant professor in dance and choreography Rebecca Pappas. 

TR 4:30-5:45 PM, Satisfies the Arts Distribution Requirement

In this course we will examine the way the arts in general and movement in particular both engage a   community and are engaged in the community. Using Hartford and the region as a field for our inquiry, we will look at the role the arts play in contributing to the overall health of a community with a particular focus on schools for at-risk youth, correctional institutions, homes for the elderly, specialized magnet schools, after-school programming and performance that utilizes the community as a generative resource. In addition to readings, films, guest speakers and discussions, there will be applied observation and study in the city of Hartford and beyond.
