Evaluating a Demonstration Speech After several viewings of the video titled “How To Charleston – Demonstration Speech” by Neal Werle, I noticed he used lots of verbal and nonverbal methods to deliver his presentation. As this video begins, I immediately saw his appearance because he was dressed nicely with a tie. Some other nonverbal means of communication he used were his posture and body movements that conveyed energy and spark interest.

His use of verbal communication conveyed that dancing was fun, exercise and can be useful at parties which engaged his audience.

Further, Roethke uses word diction to set the overall tone for this poem. The word “waltz” which is used frequently throughout the text means “to dance in triple time performed by a couple who as a pair turn rhythmically around and around as they progress around the dance floor.” If Roethke was undergoing abuse, the author would choose unfavorable words to describe encounters with his father. Instead, Roethke uses heartening words to get his message across; which is that he will cherish the memorable times he shared with his father. Another word easily misinterpreted is “romped” used in line five, which gives readers a negative connotation; but in truth means “ to play roughly and energetically”
When dance is mentioned, most people think of expressing themselves and desiring to do what you love. In the film Strictly Ballroom by Baz Luhrmann, the characters experience many challenges, such as being expected to fit in. Scott Hastings is an admirable character who changes the history of dance, and goes through an impenetrable time trying to fit in. As we move along, Scott shows us the struggles of being a “strictly ballroom” dancer, how he changes throughout the film and how it’s helped us to understand the change. While everyone else follows the dance Federation steps, Scott is unique from everyone around him, and likes to express himself through non-Federation steps.

In the second half, there were many traditional pieces that just showcased the same movements over and over. The performance was overall very long and drawn out.
