The concert all together brought the most and executed it perfectly for the audience to understand. When the dance department puts on another concert I will be attending because I absolutely loved watching the talented students of Southern Miss do what they are passionate
It can be really hard to learn how to point your feet and the dancers I watched during the dress rehearsal had perfectly pointed feet. I enjoyed each dance because they were all unique. I think the costuming is a very important part of dancing and each costume matched each dance perfectly. Hair and makeup also contributes to the overall look of the dance. Dances with lots of twirling and pirouettes allowed the dancers hair to flow and make each motion more dramatic.
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”.
Dance is an art. It is a way for people to express themselves. The dancers in the dance concert truly showed their passion for dance. They were happy to be there, happy to be dancing. The three pieces I chose to write about are Australis choreographed by Paul Maley, On this earth I will dance choreographed by Jose Silva, and Far Nearer choreographed by Jonathan Alsberry.
Dancers who enjoy music, have fun because they undergo the excitement and just dance freely. Dance overall can be good for mental and physical health. Dancing causes dancers to develop new skills such as timing, if they miss a step the whole dance can be thrown off. Dancing has plenty to do with performing. Dancers have an audience and they have to keep them entertained.
The improvised parts of Hopak involve solos, duets, trios dancers, performing visually and technically amazing acrobatic feats. These includes spins and jumps. The rest of Hopak includes many movements performed in unison. A successful Hopak requires speed and energy, the dancers, do not stop moving until the end of the dance. Diana should be very proud of her performances at One World, all three performances were outstanding.
The Shapes & Reflections 2016 dance concert consisted of well-put together dances from countless genres, most of which were Hip Hop, Modern, World, Tap, Ballet, and Contemporary. I was part of the show, so I received the chance of viewing the dances a multiple amount of times. After observing the show, the two dances I selected that stood out the most to me were “Danse De L’ Amour”, choreographed by Kim Gregg, and “Overload”, choreographed by Julio Velazquez. Danse De L’ Amour, translated as the “Dance of Love”. In Kim Gregg’s piece Danse De L’ Amour, I interpreted the piece in which the girls who danced didn’t need the men in the end, for they ended up dancing alone and amongst themselves.
They archived a perfect design and costumes aspects. The lightning of the stage was directed perfectly and the costumes for the dancers was chosen in a great taste to fit the story. The dancers did a great job in communicating the way they act with their body movements and face expression fit the subject they were trying to send for the audience. And finally, I think after Mr. Andary gave us the background about the modern dance; I was ready to attend the concert and gave my overall viewpoint of the dances. I think would not understand anything if I did not get the idea behind Modern Dance
When MacKenzie choreographs she focuses on delivering spectacularly rich performances. She has the ability to combine and create beautiful and engaging movement designs with an unusually effective understanding of concert dance architecture (Nevin, 2013). The audience is able to see the beauty each dance imposes. She is able to capture the audience with every dance and take them on a beautiful journey. She is also thoughtful in everything she does, but especially in anything that deals with any type of human connection, which is one of the many reasons why she is so successful as a teacher (Nevin, 2013).
Dancing on the stage, under the arc lights, in front of many spectators, also helped me get rid of stage fright. That in turn enabled me to enjoy my dance even more. Today, I long for the next time I get to dance on stage. Moreover, I feel so alive and in general I like people to notice me. My dance performances imbued me with confidence, which made me a confident debater and speak to my audiences powerfully.
