The Fall Dance Concert presented by the dance department had many different styles of dancing. Through each dance I tried to become the dancer so I could understand the piece and what it was trying to give to the audience. All seven dances were interesting in their own way. The two that stood out to me the most were Ain’t She Sweet? choreographed by Kellis McSparrin Oldenburg and Mystify choreographed by Dejonelle Gleeton.
MY SPECIAL HOBBY Practically every person has his or her own hobby; whether it‘s a sport, collecting certain items, or something one takes their time practicing. Personally, I never thought I ever had a hobby. As a matter of fact I wasn’t even sure what a hobby actually was. Then I got to thinking and I finally realized that my hobby was dancing. Yes, I know that to some people dancing is not considered a true hobby; but the way I see it, if I enjoy dancing and spend my precious time doing it, then I have every right to consider it as my special hobby.
On top of that, they announced the dance team as the Twin Cedars dance team and even added a new spot in the Twin Cedars Yearbook to allow for pictures of the dance team. The school took all the privileges of having a school dance team, yet took none of the responsibilities a school has for an extracurricular activity.
The mother and celebrant’s brother and sister later joined them on the dance floor for the family dance and then, her court of honor danced with her. There was a salsa choreography, which was perfectly executed and then, it was everybody’s turn. I actively participated in this. There was salsa, waltz and so many other dances of various cultures. It was indeed a rich and diverse display of culture.
On Thursday April 18, we watched a film by , about traditional African dance. I was amazed by the different dances performed and how they all held a strong symbol for the tribe they represent. The film portrayed various different tribes performing different dances for different reasons. The narrator of the film was extremely helpful with his descriptions of the people and the dances they were performing. I really enjoyed the costumes of the different tribes, especially the Bobo tribe.
However, it is theorized that the waltz was a product of evolving from a dance called the “landler.” As like many other dances, the waltz has evolved with cultural advances. Before the waltz even existed, there was a couple’s dance called the “landler.” Styles of dancing were often influenced by the exchanges of dances between the royal court and the peasants. Often the people would mimic dances such as the Landler, and bring it to their class of people. As the Landler grew more and more popular, there was much controversy over whether or not to dance this in social settings. Because of the close body contract between the men and women, the Landler was seen as sinful and erotic.
Renaissance Dance Today we have many different types of Dance: hip-hop, jazz, Irish dance, Ballet, and many more. During the Renaissance time period witch is from the 1300s to the 1600s, they had different types of Dance too Most dances were very similar, and the music during this time had a lot to do with the Dance too. The two main types of dance during the Renaissance were Court dance, and Peasant dancing. Court dances were done for entertainment and more complex, the courtiers would hire dance masters to come up with some new dances. Peasant dancing was usually not for entertainment but just for the fun of dancing!
I enjoy the process in the start where we have to research and find or design the choreography for the performance. I thrive as we try new songs; make new mixes, for that unleashes my creative energies. Also, Being present at the venue and meeting other competitors from other schools from the UAE has other advantages; as life in the UAE tends to make each group, live in their own external tangent circle. Thanks to the competitions, I made some friends for life! Dancing on the stage, under the arc lights, in front of many spectators, also helped me get rid of stage fright.
