Differing from the tango, Milonga is danced more rhythmically than dramatically. The two styles of Milonga, Milonga Lisa and Milonga Traspie, determine weather the dance is stepped on each beat of the music(Milonga Lisa) or the weight of each foot is transferred to eachother in double time or three steps in two beats to reflect the music. A common movement used when dancing the Milonga is where the follower(the female) will slide her left foot back and the male will lead his right foot forward. Another movement is a sudden pause.

Furthermore, the action portion of the basic dance elements was seen through the dancer’s basic movements that turned into dancing.

Nijinsky parents were his first teachers and taught him the basics of ballet. Nijinsky got his first taste of the stage at the age of just seven, where he made his professional debut as a chimney sweep in a comedic circus dance performance. After moving to St Petersburg with his family at the age of nine, Nijinsky auditioned for and was one of the fifteen boys accepted into the prestigious Imperial Theatrical School, a school of classical ballet that has since been renamed, The Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet.

“Two sets of 3 plie`s and 4 tondus,” “Five six seven eight,” can be heard from my dance teacher on a typical Monday night in advanced ballet. I’m out of breath, nauseous and sweating up a storm, but continue to run for my water to pour the icy cold liquid down my scratchy throat after an intense ballet-conditioning class. The clock ticks and before I know it four hours of dance passes by. If I’m not at school, I can most likely be found at my dance studio, Spotlight Dance Academy. Some people assume that I have been dancing here my whole life because of my connection to the girls and my improvement over the years, but truthfully I started dancing at Spotlight when I was in fifth grade.

There was about 5 solos, 15 duets and 25 group dances. There was a couple repeat dances there was also a couple dances that were the same but had fruit rolled up some moves or switched the moves out with a different move. This affected the dance by making it a little boring in some parts because I have all ready saw the same dance earlier in the show. There was one motif there was different there was dancers in the first a half that did different moves and in the end there was a couple of dancers that had put those dance moves into one big dance. The “ arc” of the dance was the snow queen and king dance and the sugar plum fairy dance this is because it was the middle of the dance and it looked like it was the hardest and most time put into it.

Velasco explains that his focus was centered on the two young people in love, Romeo and Juliet. He wanted to give the audience a glimpse of the first sensation of one’s true love.

Explore PBS Programming This past weekend, I watched Dudamel Conducts a John Williams Celebration with the LA Philharmonic. The program was available on the PBS website, as a part of their Great Performances section. Gustavo Dudamel conducted the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Natalie Portman hosted the event, which premiered on July 24, 2016.
