You must choose a choreographer that we have or will study within this class and make either a Power Point or a Prezi or Google Slides presentation highlighting the artist and their relevance to the world of dance. Please dive in and present a comprehensive and creative presentation of the choreographer you choose and their work!

The presentation must include:

Choreographer’s name with a brief explanation of their personal history, how they came to be an artist, their artistic career path and notable works. This must include photos and links.

Famous works and brief explanations of why those works are important with LINKS to the works for viewing, and photos of the works.

What style/genre the choreographer is working in (Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Musical Theatre. Tap, etc.)

Who were their teachers, mentors, etc.? Who are their own proteges (if applicable)?

Why you find this choreographer and their work to be interesting and relevant to the world of dance?

Links to their most important works (videos of their work), and any other choreography clips that you think are relevant to your project.

*This MUST be a choreographer and NOT a dancer/performer only.

There is no page maximum limit here to the presentation, but it must be thorough and include links to dance pieces, references, footnotes, etc. Page Minimum: It must be at least 4 pages (slides) in length. If your presentation is only 4 slides in length, please be sure that it is thorough and packed with pertinent and interesting information and links to the artist’s work.

You can get as creative as you would like with how you would like to display the information, but all the pertinent information must be there. I want to really get a sense of why this artist is important to the world of dance and the art form, what impact have they have on dance and the world at large, etc.
