This class was great! It is actually engaging, and the work isn't busywork. I actually learned a lot from this class, although some of the quizzes may be difficult. However, the professors and TA's do their best to ensure that you succeed in the class. Additionally, there wasn't a midterm and the final was just an essay on a topic we chose. I highly recommend taking this cluster.

O'Shea was a great and optimistic professor! She created a space where open dialogue was encouraged, and productive disagreement was embraced. Her system of explaining the situation one class, then allowing us to brainstorm solutions the next, allowed us to sink our teeth into these issues in an incredibly personal and insightful way.

I can't recommend this class enough! Coming from a non-dance background, I took this as a "fun" class (that didn't count for any credits), and I am glad I did. I came out feeling more confident in my ability to defend myself, set boundaries, and navigate unfamiliar situations. The professor is super engaging, funny, and makes Empowerment Self Defense digestible and accessible for everyone. There are also lots of cool guest lecturers, and for the "midterm" and "final" you're able to simulate a padded fight (both verbal and physical) with a trained instructor. It's graded on participation, so as long as you show up and stay engaged, this class shouldn't be stressful at all.

I always looked forward to attending this class each week, and would encourage anyone to take it even if you aren't a Dance major!
