PACD 426 Partnering Lab

Course Description: This course further develops and increases the students' partnering skills. Students are exposed to a wide range of contemporary styles including jazz, contemporary, ballet, modern, and ballroom partnering. This lab is an open arena in which students can hone their partnering skills through practice and repetition of material. It is necessary for dancers to have intense studio time to build strength and muscle memory in their partnering skills. This course is also specifically designed for Commercial Dance BFA students to build their repertory of lifting techniques and allow practice time of this material. It is further suggested that partnering couples sign into this course together to ensure they are a suitable couple. Physical attributes such as this are key for safety, so finding a suitable partner in regards to height and strength is essential to success in the course.
