Dances with lots of twirling and pirouettes allowed the dancers hair to flow and make each motion more dramatic. Music plays a big role in dance. all the dancers were choreographed to the music with each motion on a beat of the song. The rhythm of the music worked well with each piece. each class did an excellent job
The mood of this piece started out almost comical with the expressions of the faces and the use of frames to use three different frames and making one face from three persons smaller section of his or her face. The overall mood seemed energetic and One part that I enjoyed was when it was a frame of one person’s face and the other two people would be touching the face. This piece was unlike anything I had seen before at a dance concert. Eventually the audience is able to see bigger parts or even the full body of each dancer performing steps and the directed choreography. The technique from these the parts when dancing was more visible seemed very good.
choreographed by Kellis McSparrin Oldenburg and Mystify choreographed by Dejonelle Gleeton. Each of these pieces were completely different from each other yet charmed my dancer side. They both made me want to get up and dance with them. Both pieces were upbeat with sharp dramatic movements. I do believe that is why they fascinated me the most.
Dancing uplifts someone's mood causing them to sustain a better day. Dancers and participants frequently smile while participating in dance because they are having fun and it feels great. Some dancers like to dance because they can be creative when participating in dance. Dancing can be fun because you can experience numerous styles of dancing, including but not limited to waltz, tango, tap dance, ballet,break dance and street jazz. For some dancers, dancing can be a different experience for them because they feel as though they’ve found a new love and feel joy about dancing.
In the Nutcracker, snowflake dancers flit, float, and fly in the winter flurry. Cinderella and her prince waltz gracefully in the ballroom. These are just some illustrations of dancers using their bodies to elegantly communicate their imaginative expression of the story. In addition to being used as an artistic demonstration, ballet can also be used as a sport. There is a saying among ballerinas, “Ballet.
The many aspects that make the classic The Nutcracker ballet a delight to watch were demonstrated by the graceful and talented dancers at the Benedum Center’s evening performance on December 28. Beautiful dancing and the music of Tchaikovsky brought the stage to life as the story unfolded with Christmas Eve in the Stahlbaum home as the opening scene. The daughter of the Stahlbaum family, Marie (Hannah Carter), receives a nutcracker and pointe shoes. The nephew (Joseph Parr) tries his best to impress Marie, but he cannot, because of his hideous appearance that resulted from the evil rat king’s curse. As everyone falls asleep, the house becomes enchanted under a spell and Marie travels to the Land of Enchantment with her beloved nutcracker, (Joseph Parr), who has now come to life and revealed himself and the nephew.
The Nutcracker suite is a very jubilant piece of music. As you watch the scene you begin to realise that the animations the colors, etc. play a huge role in making that scene ‘pop.’ The way that the Fairies movements match up precisely to the music is very effective as it gives you a sense of calm. If Fantasia were to use all dark colors and no pops of vivid shades, then it would have given the song and setting a more darkened mood and atmosphere. Colors and the actions in the dance must be phenomenal in order to give the scene an energetic feel; Disney has done very well, giving this song a joyous, yet playful feel.
Similarly, Giselle's graceful footwork is truly amazing. I really like the similarities between the choreographed footwork and the music, it makes Giselle seem much more elegant and beautiful. This also seems to make the work look more put together and in sync because the dancers are dancing in harmony with the orchestra. The choreography by itself is amazing. The footwork is rapid and intricate, however, at the same time it is delicate and graceful.
However, in this ballet concert, the choreographer had designed the scenes to be more like a comedy. The movement of the sisters are more amusing than cruel. For example, when they pulled each other for being eager to dance with the prince, or when they tried to hurt and bully the Cinderella, these movements are not that cruel but amusing. Even the stepmother was drunk and danced comically in the prom scene. Moreover, the movements of all the girls who wanted their feet to fit in to the ballet shoe which Cinderella had dropped in the prom are also very funny.
The song, All Waters by Perfume Genius, is slow but intense, like the choreography. The elongated, stretching movements of the dancers reflected the melodies in the music. The music itself was sweeping and lengthy which gave the performers something to work off of. The piece would not have been the same without the accompanying music. The dance was also timed well with the music, none of the dancers’ actions seemed awkward or out of place; there was a harmony between the dance and the background music.
