The Development of a Syllabus of Historical Materials for Teaching Dance History at the College Level. Final Report.
Wynne, Shirley S.
The dearth of scholarly works and appropriate materials for the teaching of subjects in dance history led to the request for support of this project. The aim of the project was to review the materials in dance history from 1660 to 1880 in France and England, to prepare a classification system within which the materials could be organized, and to collect selected primary references, both literary and visual, into a source book which could serve as a supplementary text for courses in dance history on the upper division undergraduate and graduate level. The source book is divided into 5 main sections: 1)The Baroque Ballet: French Academic Classicism, 1660 to 1715; 2)The Transitional English School: from Court to Middle Class Theater, 1660 to 1740; 3)Perfection Within Convention: The Soloists of the French Academy, 1715 to 1760; 4)Academicism versus Innovation, 1760 to 1800; and 5)Fin de Siecle. A collation of various editions of historical works, more visual references, and interpretations of historical notation systems need to be made available to further dance history education. (DS)
