Although she wasn’t allowed to go with her sisters, she accepted help from her Fairy Godmother to prepare to make her way there. With her beautiful dress, she received “a pair of glass slippers, the prettiest in the whole world.” At the ball, no one is aware of Cinderella’s true identity. Despite that, the King’s son falls in love with her and she gets a happily-ever-after.
Yet, his acting career was cut short due to his premature balding, causing him to turn to choreography. Fosse’s choreographic style was known to be sexually suggestive, considering he grew up in Cabaret nightclubs. Bob Fosse’s signature style became popular and he began choreographing musicals such as, Pajama Games, Damn Yankees, Sweet Charity, Pippin, Chicago and the film All That Jazz. Bob Fosse has completely changed how audiences around the world view dance on Broadway
At some point in their early lives, girls – and even some boys – dream of being performing ballet on stage. Animated movies depict ballet-dancing princesses, which is arguably one of the reasons why kids are so engrossed with this elegant form of dance. As a parent, your days are probably highlighted by mad dashes to get to the classes on time, seeing a sea of pink tutus and black leotards, as well as your daughter’s smile. Undeniably, they love it, and you should too. No, I’m not saying you should take classes, but you would want to learn and appreciate what this graceful art form does to your child’s overall development in the long run.
If you heard about the Cinderella story and read George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion”, you would know that both stories are similar in numerous ways but also different too. In Shaw’s Pygmalion which was taken place in London , the main character “Eliza” portrays Cinderella. Cinderella who lived in France, was a girl who was underappreciated and treated horribly by her stepmother and siblings. Both girls was poor in the beginning but the outcome made them rich Some ways that we can compare Eliza’s life to Cinderella’s are, not knowing anything about their real mother and the lack of morals the parental figure has, that both girls were poor and from the underclass who blossomed, they both had a fairy god-person as their mentor, they got out of the social nuisance they lived in, the social criticism and lastly both Eliza and Cinderella was dependent. Eliza’s and Cinderella’s mother had died when they both was really young, but in Cinderella’s case her father remarried and eventually died and was left with her step mother and step sisters and Eliza’s father abandoned her and only checks on her when he needs money.
The globe theater attracted huge crowds - up to 3000 people (“Globe Theatre and the Puritans”) . Respectable citizens were concerned about the rise in crime and the bawdy nature of some of the plays ,fighting ,drinking , not to mention the risk of so many people and the spread Bubonic Plague”( “Globe Theatre and the Puritans”). The reason that the Puritans did not like the Globe Theater was because they thought that it was morally wrong . The Purtians did not like what it stood for . The Puritans were a Protestant religious faction and the term came into general usage at the reign of Bloody Mary and the start of the Elizabethan Era” .
In this essay I will be discussing how Lurhmann has evolved these cinematic techniques beginning in Strictly Ballroom, continuing in Romeo and Juliet and finally in The Great Gatsby. Strictly Ballroom was made on a very limited budget but this did not stop Lurhmann using very audacious costumes. His use of specific costumes always has a meaning behind it such as in Strictly ballroom: Fran’s dull and boring dresses that she wears at the beginning of the film, that creates a big contrast to all the ‘over the top’ costumes all the other people wear. Lurhmann does this in order to get people to over look her as a character because she doesn’t stand out. However by the end of the film she is shown in a very bright red dress which catches the audience’s attention and shows that she is a vital part in the film.
Ballet became foundation of many other dance genres. Ballet dancer requires years and years of training to be professional. It's choreographed and performed by trained dancers, and dancers are wearing splendid costumes and dancing on a adorned stage with lighting, banner, and scenery. The word "ballet'' entered English usage from French around 1630 which means "to dance". There are couple of styles in ballet, and today, I like to introduce classical, Romantic, and contemporary.
The effortless and delicate appearance of a ballerina and the usage of pointe shoes, although they were technologically still in their primitive forms, brought a weightlessness and sense of flight to a ballerina’s dancing. Long romantic tutus which hid the knees stressed the sharp and articulated usage of the foot. These long skirts also led to more petite allegro dancing, lower extensions, and reduced jumps. A burst of new technology which arose from the Industrial Revolution vastly impacted the technological advancements from the Romantic period. Through the technical improvements, archaic candlelit theaters transitioned to a new era of gaslighting.
The education of a males and females were alternate spheres. Women were deemed unworthy to contribute to the income of a household. Consequently, Jane and her sister’s education was diluted with foreign language, music, and dancing (JaneAusten). The teachings seem to be a form of entertainment or pleasure for the man. This idea is displayed through the Musgrove’s gatherings, in which the females would prepare by providing food, music, and dancing for the superior husband.
It cannot be omitted that Mr. Darcy is from better social conditions, and he showed that the local young women were not good enough for him as he is from very wealthy family with good connections. He only danced with Mr. Bingley´s sister, as she belonged to the same class as
