Dance 35 Wednesday February 7 th , 2008 Classical Ballet Ramp [inclined surface] Dance from a “La Bayadere” Bayadere-supernatural being in India. 1877. Peti Pa: Composer Most classical work in European culture. Movement phrases. Clarity of form. No percussion. Greeks/Romans started ballet-classical civilization. Enlightenment: rationality/reason are the main tools for understanding the world, not religion. Clarity of form is important in classicism. You can see their body shapes clearly in space. Repetition adds to clarity because you can see it over and over again. Simplicity of movements. 2 types: 1. Shapes in space: how clear are the movements in space? 2. Choreographic: How do the movements develop through time? Plato saw a lot of flaws in the world. Wrote The Republic . The world we see is a flawed reflection of a perfect world [realm of higher forms].

    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.
