Fairy tales are very powerful stories that have been told to many generations. These are different forms of stories that hold messages for their audiences.

and was himself revising and re-choreographing masterworks by St. Leon etc. that he staged, as well as his own works when he revived them. Bournonville 's Sylphide is based on Taglioni 's and also quite different too etc. etc. So some revision was built into the DNA of ballet history especially in eras with limited means of recording or notation.
Van Damme thereby takes for granted that cultures are changing over time due to various factors. When analysing this intercultural artistic exchange, several preconditions have to be investigated (van Damme 377). These can be divided into the circumstances that allowed the outside features to be integrated and the factors that made the external features available; both to be regarded under an economical, religious, political and social aspect. Moreover, the agency of the individual and the general motivation for the incorporation or distribution of the art form have to be considered. The former is concerned with the individual’s manner of receiving or distributing an art form and whether this happened on purpose or not whereas the motivation reveals the religious, political economic or social driving forces behind this.
INTRODUCTION The human body is central to how we understand components of identity such as gender, sexuality, race, and ethnicity. People change or modify their bodies, hair, and clothing to; hold up with certain groups or cultures; rebel against social conventions and also; to express messages to others around them. As a result, many artists explore gender, race and ethnicity through representations of the body in their creative process. The purpose of this assignment is to identify and discuss an artist who deals with issues of body and identity in his or her artworks. The artworks will be analysed, to prove their affiliation to the concept of Body and Identity issues in art.
O’NEILL – “THE BURKE-WOLLSTONECRAFT DEBATE: SAVAGERY, CIVILIZATION, AND DEMOCRACY” (2012) O’Neill’s book ensures a very detailed discussion of the political theory and moral philosophy of Burke and Wollstonecraft and emphasizes the significance of the intellectual inheritance that framed their commitment to the Revolution Controversy. Many modern feminists and conservatives discover the roots of their ideologies, correspondingly, to Edmund Burke (1729–1797) and Mary Wollstonecraft (1759–1797), and a correct understanding of these two prominent thinkers is therefore essential as a framework for political debates at that time. Burke is misinterpreted, if viewed as mostly providing a notice about the dangers of attempting to turn utopian concept into political sphere, while Wollstonecraft is definitely a far more than just a supporter of extending the public sphere rights of man to include women. Contrarily, at the heart of their dissimilarities lies an argument over democracy as a force leaning toward savagery (Burke) or toward civilization (Wollstonecraft). These dissimilarities are clarified during their debate over the meaning of the French Revolution.
Textual composers use literary archetypes as a vehicle to represent society's attitudes and values, particularly those that have changed throughout the years and those that are still evident in society today. Through the comparison of the classic 'Snow White' Grimm's novel, director Tarsem Singh's 2012 Snow White adaptation 'Mirror Mirror' and Matt Phelan's 2016 Snow White graphic novel, we can analyse how character archetypes have changed throughout time, featuring similar characters in three vastly different adaptations of the fairy-tale, Snow White. Character archetypes represent society's ideals of different genders, roles and various individuals that each have personal attitudes and goals throughout the tale that carry the story. Different
Conclusion This study about Multiculturalism in Classical Ballet Companies Nowadays has revealed that multiculturalism is a complicated term. If multiculturalism can be denoted as the coexistence of diverse groups that share different cultural and ideological backgrounds, classical ballet companies can be defined as multicultural. Historically, already in the middle of the nineteenth century, when Marius Petipa emigrated to Saint-Petersburg and introduced in his masterpieces such as Swan Lake, the vocabulary and the grace of the French ballet together with the technical virtuosity of the Italians and the character of the Russians, the first coexistence of ballet cultures took place. Later on, although during the Cold War ballet was used as
Although some similarities exists between the two categories, it is important to understand the differences in both the advocacy and analysis each type has received and the particular challenges each presents prior to Thailand attempting to institute anti-trafficking policy. According to Lisa Rende Taylor, an anthropologist who has worked in the field of anti human trafficking in Asia for eighteen years, the Thai government must have a strong understanding of both the regional and global causes of both types of human trafficking. While there are some similarities between the large-scale causes, in general, each type of trafficking has distinctive and unique origins. A significant number of experts have attempted to determine the root causes of human trafficking within Thailand, which has led to great debate inside the community regarding the pervasiveness and relevance of many of the causes. However, the discussion over the years has not resulted in a clear consensus and many international organizations, such as the United Nations, do not incorporate an official cause of human trafficking in protocols or other
Potential nominee candidates must have recommendations, written statements of qualifications from interested members, and recommendations from members who have reviewed written officer application forms from each member interested in office. Then the nominations committee members must review duties and qualifications of each office, which include goals, strengths, challenges, in the organization self- assessment report. If there is more than one candidate for an officer position then candidates must be required to give speeches about why the candidate is uniquely qualified for that particular position. Then nominations are done by ballet, instead of taking nominations from the floor, this organizations takes nominations by ballet. Each member is given a nominating ballet and will write the names of one or more candidates on it, the nomination committee then counts the ballets and writes a list of the new officers who won the popular vote for the president to read to the organization.

The title of the class is Raid the Archives—Understanding Visual Literacy, so we focus on the idea of the archive and how it impacts us. The learning outcome for the project includes a newfound understanding of visual literacy and the connections between creativity and investigative research. My project proposal is to create an archive of movement. I am a ballet dancer and I wanted to be able to document my art form in a different medium. I hope to lay paper down and dip my feet in paint then dance to create a calligraphy-like piece of art.
People can be of different races but can have the same ethnicity. It is what binds a population together by their cultural personalities (Henslin, 2014). “Ethnicity is about tradition, learned behavior and customs” (DifferenceBetween, 2011). Some people feel more strongly about their ethnicity then others. They identify with their cultural identity by the way they dress, the music they listen to and the way that they dance.
