 Two Dance class observation papers are required in this course. All students must copy/paste the assignment into the text window provided. This assignment should be 2-3 full pages in length. Please do not exceed 4 pages as I will not read them beyond 3 pages. The goal of the assignment is to write a concise analytical essay. Scroll down to see the specific Guidelines for this assignment below DANCE CLASS OBSERVATION PAPER GUIDELINES Please note: The 1st paper is only to be written on either Ballet or Modern Dance. Please do not email me asking to write about another dance genre. These are the requirements for this assignment. BEFORE EMAILING ME: Please do not email me asking where to go to observe a class. BE RESOURCEFUL! Check the LBCC schedule of Dance classes for class times and locations online at (Links to an external site.) or inquire about other dance classes in your community at local dance studios or colleges via Internet or by telephone. If you choose to go to a local dance studio or recreational center be sure that the students in the class are over the age of 15. Other options are community colleges in your local area and other university Dance departments. Be resourceful and don′t forget to get permission to observe the class BEFORE attending!! Do not arrive late or leave the class early, as it is disrespectful to the art form. You are required to watch the class in its entirety so clear your schedules!
