Ruya Adly Professor Bailey DAN 105.35 March 13, 2018 Chapter 5: Modern Dance 1) What were the reasons for the emergence of a new form of dance very early in the 20th century? The early 20 th century saw a new movement in dance due to a desire to return to the expressive motivations for dance. Dancers wanted to express their own personal vision through dance, also causing a move away from ballet, which was formal and patterned. 2) What changes in subject matter and approach to dance technique were the second-generation choreographers exploring? Be specific in your answer for the following artists: Hawkins, Taylor, Cunningham and Horton. Erick Hawkins had an independent approach to movement based on natural kinesthetic response. He had a strong interest in historical and literary American themes and American composers. He believed dance accompaniment should always be performed live and frequently had his musicians situated on stage.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
