How does dance communicate? What does dance communicate? And how does it educate?? 1.5 pages
In this paper, explore how dance in popular culture educates even as it entertains on the screen: film, commercials, music videos, Youtube, or television. Center your thesis around a particular hegemonic concept such as those discussed in class (i.e., “high/low” binary of the academy, heteronormativity, masculinity, femininity, consumerism, racial and ethnic biases, etc.). Relate this particular concept to dance on screen by closely analyzing at least three specific scenes. In your thesis, argue whether and how the hegemonic idea is either contested or propagated through dance on the screen, and why this is important to analyze.
You must use a minimum of 2 literary sources from class and 3 outside sources, cited in the body of paper, in MLA format.
You may cite lectures from class to supplement your argument, but they will not “count” as selections of your 5 sources.
Provide an accompanying work cited page, following MLA guidelines.
