I give the concert an A for diversity. The concert as a whole made me want to get up and dance with them especially Ain’t She Sweet? by Kellis McSparrin Oldenburg and Mystify by Dejonelle Gleeton. I think that both of those pieces captivated me the most is that I wanted to get up right then and join them on stage. The dancers executed each movement precisely and with precision.
In the dress rehearsal, I got to view others and see the big picture. I saw so many great things and some things to work on. This is my formal review. Things I noticed that could be improved include: being together, performing the same dance moves, and facial expressions. In the dance happiness, one dancer caught my eye every time.
Andreini created the role of “Isabella” the ingenue who was in love with the idea of being in love and her husband Fernando played Isabella’s love interest Fabio. She created this role during a time when women were not seen on stage and many did not feel it was appropriate for them to be on stage. “Isabella” was a remarkable character that feigned madness and dressed like a man. The first time she debuted the character was during the Medici wedding. Many who saw her act as Isabella were amazed at how well she played her.
My dance performances imbued me with confidence, which made me a confident debater and speak to my audiences powerfully. Finally, I would like to say that dancing gave me an identity in school. I feel happy when my cohorts recognize me and to younger girls join the dance group, as they want to dance like me. My teachers and those junior to me will remember me as a dancer and I will miss school mainly because I will miss my dance family. Indubitably, I will cherish the times I have spent – performing on stage, practicing and making many friends at
I had the pleasure of attending this years Spring Dance Concert. As a dancer I love being presented different types of dance, I feel as though it broadens your views as an artist. What I appreciated the most was the boundaries pushed by the dancers and choreographers at this years spring recital. The first piece “A taste of Majorette” was very upbeat piece that began with the dancers in the aisle alongside the audience. The piece was very upbeat and the dancers were wearing royal blue leotards, it was visually stimulating, the spins and kicks reminded me of the “New York City Rockettes”.
Her friends always brag about her to their families and other friends. Her family describes her as the most fashionable person in the family and hope she will become a fashion designer when she grows up. In her free time she dances. She loves dancing and people constatntly compliment her on how good she is. She is an amazing person.
A common feature in classical ballet is the floor patterns; the dancers use many circular shapes often around the main dancer that are repeated and developed throughout. Straight lines towards the audience are also commonly practiced; the movements are small, quick and delicate, but effective when danced in unison. These small gestures are beautifully enhanced by the composed music which follows the 'fairytale' feel of the piece as a whole. The music is used to exaggerate simple gestures, this is often to make it seem more amusing to the audience. In Copelia by Arthur Saint Leon, the female 'love interest' sneaks in to a workshop to find out who her beloved is spending all his time with.
Of course, there will always be people to attend a ballet performance; the seats will be filled with ballet lovers anticipating the spellbinding charm of the dancing. Ballet is always changing its costumes, portrayal, music, and dancing, but its purpose and goal still remain the same. Ballet’s rich history and background are always expanding and adding new dancers, choreographers, and composers to
Ballet is a beautiful artwork which expresses ones dance ability beyond core and strength, it is a very mental and physical sport. It has graced the stages of many and has made people smile and cry whether you are on the one on the stage or the audience cheering after every step. It’s a dream to watch. Ballet was originated in the 15th century italian renaissance courts. Ballet was performed at wedding celebration where music and dance would be watched and praised.
Regardless of one’s race, location, or gender, the value of dance can be mutually similar to everyone. The show will do well as long as people can relate and appreciate the dance crews that MTV select to compete. Once the audience sees the performance, they will want to share what they saw on America’s Best Dance Crew last night, which will extend the fan base of the inspiring dance crew. They will be able to design T-shirts like season one’s champions, Jabbawockeez did, and create business revenue with merchandise and future shows. Works Cited Bright, Paul.
