Dance and Ritual
Referencing the chapters on dance and ritual, write an 800-900 word essay on the relationships between dance and ritual. Be creative and make your voice heard. Your essay MUST have a title that reflects your thesis statement in an original way. Your thesis statement MUST be your very first sentence. Illustrate your ideas with information from those two chapters (genres, performers, songs, traditions, etc.). What are some concepts that relate to both ritual and dance? Think big – demonstrate your knowledge of the author’s points as they apply to this issue. How does music interface with both, and help create proper contexts? Again, use and synthesize ideas from the book. You may conclude your essay with a brief personal statement regarding your own experiences that relate to this topic.
