It requires a lot of endurance. Dance requires a lot of practice and can sometimes take up 2 or 3 days a week. Dance is a sport because it requires strength, practice and flexibility. Dance is a sport because it requires a lot of strength. The word athlete is defined as “a person trained or gifted in exercises or contests involving physical agility, stamina, or strength.” Dancers need a lot of strength to jump high, turn without falling over and keep up with the dance overall.
It is an upbeat fun-loving piece that overall is meant to make people smile, which it does indeed accomplish. This piece is one of the only pieces from Dancin’ in which the entire cast of dancers is singing the entire time. Not only is there singing and dancing, but also there are numerous rhythmic sections, which involve a lot of brain muscles. Harry Warren wrote the music and the Lyrics are by Johnny Mercer ("Fosse - the Musical."). The piece begins with seemingly simple but extremely stylized movements with the cast in complete unison.
I have been on the team so I know, there are chants, stunts, and gymnastics. Cheerleading is hard work. One thing I have to work hard at is the form and yelling loud enough when I am doing chants. Chant are the words that the cheerleaders yell. The form has to be close to perfect because if you want to be on time you have to do the correct motions to the chant.
According to Little and Jenne, the sarabande is a dance “that seems calm, serious, and somewhat tender, but [also] ordered, balanced, and sustained.”(Little and Jenne, 92) It is also recognised that the sarabande has an underlying sense of wildness from its Spanish origins and sudden changes in the character which further justify the passionate Affekt of the dance. This powerful, passionate emotion hidden by a serious aura can be seen in many baroque works, especially those of Bach. Sarabandes often include mostly slow and fluent dance steps but some quicker and more lively moments are often included as this also suggests a passionate affekt. Little and Jenne state that Sarabandes often include the following musical features (Little and Jenne: 96) They have a metre of 3/4, make use of balanced phrases of 4 or 8 bars and have a harmonic rate of change of crotchets. Dissonance is often used to express the extreme passion
Dance is a sport because it requires work ethic, athletic ability, and builds confidence and emotion. One reason why dance is a sport is because it requires work ethic. There are so many things dancers do that are equivalent to any other sport: “We compete, It’s a workout, We stretch, We gain muscle, You need good stamina, We have uniforms, We could have equipment, We have to remember things, We get injured, Dance is difficult.” (10 Reasons Why Dance Is A Sport). The evidence states everything that dancers do. If a football or soccer
Line Dancing is a style originating from country and western dancing, in which participants line up in rows and follow a set of choreographed pattern of steps and turns to a song. Although this form of dance can be recreational, there are many fitness benefits – such as physical, mental, and emotional wellness – that can be gained through regularly practicing this style of dance. For example, taking part in line dancing helps improve balance and posture. There are many studies that have proven dancing improves balance, including in elderly people. Line dancing consists of many turns and steps that require balance.
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.
Elizabeth Cameron Dalman, is a renowned teacher, choreographer, director and performer who is known as the founder of modern dance in Australia; 1965 saw the Australian Dance Theatre open under Dalman, further cementing Australia’s respected position internationally on the dance stage (Australian Government, 2013). Modern or contemporary dance, is seen as similar to ballet with small elements from other styles of dance. The movements in contemporary dance are performed on the floor with less structure than the strict movements seen in ballet. In addition, dancers often perform in bare feet, further emphasizing the freedom this style of dance allows; performers emotions are expressed through movements (Bedinghaus, T. 2015). Versatility, unpredictable
In the individual freestyle, the dancer is free to use any move that her or she would desire, but in commercial dancing, dancers must follow the routine and dance in a certain fashion that fits the needs of the director. My observation of the film has allowed me to look at the basics of tap dancing, seeing that the shoe has two metal parts, with one on the ball of the foot and another on the heel for generating the “tapping” noise. Unlike some other footwork based dance styles, tap dancers appear to mostly use a heel-toe style footwork on both feet, depending on the tap noise that they desire. The movement appears to require great speed and agility in moving the feet to generate the smooth and rapid tapping
