They danced back and forth and then came together at the end to wrap it all up. I noticed that this was an aspect of good dance technique, partnering. They used each other as partners to create a story and build off of each other’s last movements. While it was apparent that one dancer clearly had better personal tap dance technique, what made it work as a whole was their joint ability to come together and trust each other to dance the same level as the other. This created a performance that was easy for the audience to watch, despite clearly having one dancer be better at tap dancing than the
From the beginning, I will express the first emotion, curiosity, through the ‘Minsok Chum’. Since the ‘Minsok Chum’ is an upbeat dance it will matches the emotion the most than any other dance forms. The middle part of the dance will focus on expressing the journey of picture bride utilizing Taiji and Zen dance movements that are slow. When I describe the journey, the Zen dance walk will be a useful base movement to express picture bride’s physical movement from Korea to Hawaii. I will utilize Taiji because it is slow form of dance which will be useful for the expression of picture bride experience of long distance journey and deep concern to uncertain future.
Furthermore, imagination also removes fear of the unknown, for when the ladies think that the sword is not real. Another instance is when Puck removes the fear of the audience by saying if they have been scared by the act, think of it “no more yielding but a dream”(5.1.419). Reality may be filled with anxiety and discomfort, but imagination and deception are what make the unknowns in life comfortable enough to
The simple storylines mixed with catchy music and detailed choreography result in an enjoyable and fun viewing experience. The worlds illustrated in musicals do not share the same social issues real society faces, and perhaps that is one reason why the genre remains popular even with the use of patriarchal gender roles. Grease is no exception from musicals that perpetuate sexism and use the male gaze to appease the audience while hindering strong female roles. Even with the one-dimensional characters and use of stereotypes, Grease and many other musicals remain well-liked by their female audiences because of the utopian worlds they portray and the pleasure found in the viewing
Is a powerful art that showcases their tremendous potentials, from creative dancing, to physical strength in performing on the spinning pole, to the innate level of being able to embrace and express yourself out there, there is a need to show them respect for the entertainment they present to us, just like how we respect doctors for doing their job to save lives. These women are strong and there is a story behind the way they dance and it is powerful and empowering. Although it is important too, to take into consideration the environment
Through this, Fugard draws attention away from the sad reality and makes the reader focus on the beauty and optimism of the “dream” because that is what Fugard “want[s] life to be like” (46). Thus, he ends the scene with romantic colors to give hope for a “love story” between races with a “happy ending”
Members of this movement focus on one thing: “the capacity of belly dance to help women cultivate a sense of inner freedom” (Jarmakani, AlSultany, & Shohat, p. 147). Belly dancing has also been a form of escape from the restrictive body images which are sought after in the West, in which this type of dance allows for a fuller, more curvaceous body type than ballet dancers for example. This alternative to the skinny bodies promoted in Western advertising and fashion, replaces both the fears and modernizing impulses rooted in Orientalism (Dox, p. 55). Thus allowing the women to feel that her body, regardless of size, is accepted and appreciated reclaiming their body as “powerful, creative, [and] sensual” (Maira, p.
There are studies which tell about the rewarding effects of social drinking. Almost all of them have momentary psychological benefits, such as reducing anxiety, narrowing attention focus, helping in social activeness, and my favorite, helping non-dancers to dance (not really sure how that is beneficial, but dancing’s good). Some also say that western cultures have social drinking imbibed in their culture to tackle the harsh weather
The choreography of the dance was good, but I felt as though it was anticlimactic. The only real climax was when Ms. Mamala entered. However, everyone had a wonderful stage face and gave the dance a happy energetic feeling. I thought of it as a piece that showcased fun. “Jungle”, choreographed by Paige Sudicky was sensational and allowed me to feel the
I would never denigrate their talent. I respect the difficulties of ballet and the profession too much for that; however, whether the NYCB dancers of today fit Balanchine 's vision is another question. I consider Pierre Lacotte one of the top choreographers today by far -- better than some who are getting all kinds of publicity today. If such a choreographer is not sufficiently experienced to comment on how well a dancer is dancing Balanchine, then the ballet world is in trouble.
entertainment” by explaining that most choreographers try to incorporate the two factors while creating their piece rather than emphasizing on just one. By solely focusing on entertaining an audience with their work it, “comes across as a series of tricks without substance,” and will seem to have a lack of meaningfulness. Whereas with taking a specific artistic approach, some people may not be able to appreciate the dance as an art if, “there is nothing within the dance that is familiar [or] relatable,” to the audience. 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
Many researchers have confirmed that dancing is a great benefit to the body as a whole. “The performance of aesthetic movements through dance is of benefit to health by developing the strength,speed and flexibility of the body.” (Bloomfield, pg 681) People may improve their physical bodies by just getting involved in dancing. Teachers in Britain have brought dancing to school curriculums to improve physical and mental abilities in kids.
Senior Care Services: Benefits of Group Exercise Exercise is important for people of all ages. It takes on even extra importance as we age. Not only do seniors tend to lose muscle mass, but they also suffer from a number of ailments that require the benefits of exercise such as osteoporosis, arthritis, and an increased risk of coronary heart disease, diabetes, and depression. Many times seniors start an exercise program with the best of intention, but they soon quit.
