A lot of the dances were exciting or entertaining, but these two dances made me stop and think more about the deeper meaning. Since they were both so different, I found myself thinking about them separately. However, the more I compared them I realized how well both dances complimented each other in the end.

In America, Martha Graham (The Queen of Modern), Rudolph von Laban ( Time Energy and Space), and Alvin Ailey (Gospel or Lyrical Spiritual dance) developed and are developing for human movement and methods of instruction that led to the development of modern and expressionist dance.

According to Maratta “Female athletes are just as capable and accomplished as the men, yet fans do not give them the chance to prove that they deserve to be admired and followed” (Maratta 539). Maratta's point is that our society depreciates women in sports, because we have the misconception that men are suppose to be better than women in everything they do. Maratta also claims that female athletes must look feminine at all times to be acknowledged in the sports industry (Maratta 539). In other words,

Aleyn reduces her value, making her an undesirable woman for marriage since chastity is desired more than an experienced woman. Afterwards, Symkyn is punished by the wife and two scholars because he fails to control his women and is inevitably isolated with manhood. Unluckily, Symkyn cannot withhold social statuses or break down social barriers since he cannot maintain authority. John and Aleyn are worshipped in the tale, because they were able to hold their power, despite their lesser
The primary take away from the program as a whole was that interpretations of each dance was truly “in the eye of the beholder.” To some, the meaning might be one thing and to another something entirely different. In my opinion, that was the beauty of Dancescape. Each dance carried with it different interpretations depending on the audience’s individual perspective. Many elements went in to delivering a message that could inspire thought from the audience, some of which included time, space, group dancing, sound, and
With jazz dance starting in Africa and being influenced by many people, and modern dance starting mostly in Germany and having many different genres.

At the BYU Dance in Concert talk back, one of the important issues covered about this topic was that we, “recognize there are value in both [entertainment and art]”, and that “If you can combine both,” while maintaining the balance, “the result can be very
Falling into dance was a hypnotizing performance that enthralled its audience and stood to make a point. The point that this was not an average high school performance. Within the first act alone, it had sent me through a range of emotions and understandings. I understood love from Audrey and Prudencio and I understood death from Layla and Lindsey. The performance in its entirety left me in awe.
Although men do tend to be stronger, women could be just as powerful if they took a stand or a little change was made. This essay will explain how sexist dress codes, shaming young girls for our country’s high teen pregnancy rate, sexual harassment, domestic violence show the spiteful feelings towards females.
