ARTS 530 - Sacred Dance and the Liturgical Arts

3 credits
This course explores the forms, content, and contexts of sacred dance, movement, and other liturgical arts. From Biblical circle dances, to European cathedrals, to hush arbors and concert stages, the arts express powerful connections to and inspiration from the Divine. How have religious worldviews been expressed through dance in sacred settings in the past and at present? How is the Body of Christ materialized through individual and corporate moving bodies?  What does it mean to embody worship? The course is for every body and operates on the assumption that dance and movement are essential human activity. It is not a ‘technique class,’ but an exploration of movement as creative process for ministers, liturgical artists, and lay people.
