The dancers executed each movement precisely and with precision. This added extra umph to both Ain’t She Sweet? by Kellis McSparrin Oldenburg and Mystify by Dejonelle Gleeton. The costumes also helped each piece elaborate the storyline the dancers were revealing to the audience. The concert all together brought the most and executed it perfectly for the audience to understand.

Another moment that stood out was when the strings of lights came out at the final of the piece. This added a touch of warmth and added to the swing, country feel of the dance. Because I am classically trained in ballet, I appreciate turn out and piles between steps; however, I thought that this piece successfully told a story. It seemed very well rehearsed and the effort put in showed. The dancers portrayed the emotions of the piece as well.
Also, balance was seen when one dancer would carry the other dancer when he has fallen without both falling. Moreover, the dancers used many gestures, such as hand movements like trying to lure in the audience in understanding and empathizing with their dance. These gestures were simple, but connected well with the audience. Rhythm in this dance was like a pattern, it would follow the mood of the dance to demonstrate motivation, optimism, distress and discouragement. Their rhythmic movements were so in sync that they were on beat with the low tempo music most of the time.

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.

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).
I have found a love in dancing because of this. I’m very passionate about it. Not only that, but it runs through my genes. Therefore, when I took dance class, it changed me in many ways. Dancing was always there for me since the beginning.
