For Kailing, the presence and absence of physical contact with others while dancing signals the degree of intimacy she has with those around her, whereas, for Mr. Sugiyama,
(Many 20th-century masterworks tend to be much more tightly constructed.) Moreover, since ballet is a performing art, it lives in live performances, even more than classical music does. Other performing arts do the same. Broadway revivals as well as opera productions--change key aspects of staging all the time: the upcoming Carousel will have Peck 's choreography, not Macmillan 's not De Mille 's. But we still call it Carousel. Maybe that IS a bad thing--wouldn 't it be nice to see the others revived...

Nijinsky;Breaking the Barrier Vaslav Nijinsky, one of the most renowned and admired dancers of the 20th century, was known for his astounding leaps and interpretations and his ability to dance en pointe. Nijinsky forever changed the world of dance, serving as an inspiration for the pioneers of what we now know to be modern dance. He broke down the barrier between dance and emotion by dancing with an entirely new technique that he felt portrayed the essence of his creations, instead of confining himself to the familiarity of the somewhat clichéd ballet technique. He came to celebrity, almost god-like status, introduced audiences to his thoroughly alternative, and enraging new approach to dance, and overcame his challenges, both personal
There is a freedom of movement, powerful and big, as their dance explores the essential energy of conscious awakening. It is a reflection of the transition from inertia to motion, reinforced by both the music that seemed to mimic heartbeats and the lighting with the dark red stage; this reminder of both bodily and emotional existence. Coming together in a final tableau of energy and togetherness, a stark contrast to the slumber of the opening scene, the isolation of each performer before they begin to dance is dispelled and replaced by determined motion. Unconsciousness to consciousness, fearfulness to fearlessness and the decision, the importance of choice, is now free to explode into
Dance as an Art Alfonzo King’s choreography and the way he enables his dancers to move in a way that is both controlled and natural sets the precedent for both dancers and choreographers everywhere. King states that he begins his artistic process by thinking of dance as a “mental construction in a physical world.” He then tries to bring this construction to life with the aid of his dancers. According to King, dancers need to not only bring physical capability to the table, but also strong “body, spirit, and mind.”

The choreographies presented at the Cornish Dance Theater were very distinct from each other, though choreographers from both pieces put much effort on communicating devices to best deliver their intended-visions to the audiences. In MIXeD mEdia, the stage was decorated into a narrowed, light-colored setting in addition to the ballet performance, making the overall impression of the performance to be somewhat joyful and relaxing. Similarly, in Cannot Be Undone, the choreographer not only had music altering between strong-beats-fast-pace and sentimental-style-slower-pace, but also utilized varied lighting design in addition to props for creating sensational impacts. Although the two choreographers structured the performance with very different way, I believe that their intentions and motivations were alike after viewing and sharing
Bill T. Jones’s Still/ Here is about the human feelings and they are expressed through high formal structures. I think this choreography is abstract and it focuses on the gestures that Jones’s is dancing to. One of the examples is when one of the dancers strikes up and uses a “game-playing” technique in the workshops.
