If you show your feelings in a dance, people will actually see what kind of dance you're doing or what kind of story is behind the dance. In conclusion, I think that dance is considered a sport because you perform in a competition, you have dance practice, and dance is a stress reliever. I hope that by reading this paper it has persuaded you to think that dance is a
“I went from ‘I hate how I see myself in the mirror, I am constantly analyzing myself, talking down myself, like about negative thoughts,’ to… at the end of that time, I was like, ‘Okay, I just wanna dance to music and feel like I’m moving… you know?’ and by that time I also kinda sorted out my weight issues. Not on purpose. It just kinda happened with becoming happier.” (Larissa) I met with the wonderful ballet dancer, Larissa Marie Kogut, on a sun-drenched Tuesday afternoon, minutes after her rehearsal with Diablo Ballet had ended. She greeted me with an enthusiastic smile, much like the one I had seen at my ballet studio’s production of The Nutcracker, where she had been a guest performer, acting as the Sugarplum Fairy. Thrilled to be interviewing my idol, I could barely expel the words from my mouth, which got twisted up with each other as
A sport is any kind of activity in which an individual trains their body for either entertainment, or for competition. I definitely think that Ballet can be classified as a sport. Ballet involves viroguous training to create a dance routine that will eventually tell a story, or captivate audiences. The several hours that a ballerina dedicates to Ballet, is evident in the way a dancer walks, in addition to the lean muscles that occur due to these hours of training. This result is much like how a football or baseball player dedicates hours to the gym in order to gain both strength and speed.
Crunchy Granola Suite’s music is by G. Harrell ("Fosse - the Musical."). This specific piece of work is recognized by many dance critics to be one of the strongest pieces in the revue. The exciting piece, danced by twelve dancers is described as a showstopper. Two company members sing Crunchy Granola Suite: Brad Anderson and Eugene Fleming. These two members have been seen in previous numbers dancing, which is yet another example of the versatility Fosse expected from his dancers.
“Harrison Bergeron” Discussion Questions: Question Two: What is the significance of the dance that Harrison performs with the ballerina? How does the style in which the story is written change in this passage? The significance of the dance that Harrison performs with the ballerina is to represent the way the world would be like if they were allowed to express themselves and show the world their beauty, intelligence, and any other physical attributes. According to page 4, it says “Harrison and his Empress merely listened to the music for a while-listened gravely, as though synchronizing their heartbeats with it…And then, in an explosion of joy and grace, into the air they sprang! Not only were the laws of the land abandoned, but the law of gravity and the laws of motion as well.
“The Play That Goes Wrong” required a very detailed strategic plan of the arranged props and set design that actors need to follow in their performance. I believe the performers did a marvelous job in following the detailed choreography of the show. One of the most memorable cast members was Nancy Zamit. She played Annie the stage manager, who took the spotlight when she was forced into playing Charles’ fiancée named Sandra because the original female lead got "knocked unconscious” in the middle of the play. As terribly shy as she was, Zamit intensified the enjoyment of the audience as her character was reading off lines from pages of the script very awkwardly and awfully in an unfitted red dress and wig.
Maria Tallchief changed the world of arts, overcame fears of many, and stood up to those who disagreed with her. When she danced, she impacted everyone who watched her. Because of impacting many, is she wanted to dance professionally. Maria was born on January 24, 1925 and died on April 11, 2013. Growing up, Maria was always interested in the arts such as playing piano, singing, and dancing.
The male and female dancers, in Dark Matters choreographed by Crystal Pite, use movements throughout the dance that produce a visceral response from the audience. The performance begins with the two dancers partnering blissfully; they initiate their movements from the upper body and stay connected in some way. For these reasons one can conclude that the two dancers are comfortable, have a relationship with each other. The swaying section was brought to a complete stop when the woman collapses to the floor moving away from her partner. The man rushes over to her seeming to apologize to her, with a kiss.
After attending a children’s talent show, Sone became enthralled by dancing. So much so that she wanted to take lessons, her mother agreed with her that it was a good idea. Her father had a different opinion, he strongly disapproved as he associated dancing with immoral and scandalous behavior, telling her mother “ ‘I’d die of disgrace if my daughter were to appear that like in public’ (p. 45).” Her life was impacted by his preconceived ideas of what was appropriate for a young girl, and since he was the ‘man of the house’ his ruling was
It is interesting watching the reactions of the Moms to each other’s behaviours. Another section of Dance Moms found entertaining is finding out what happens behind the scenes of the fake smiles and dancing and to see how hectic and dramatic show business is. Dance Moms has an educational aspect as it discusses how people strive to get to the stage that they are and inspires other young and older girls to start dance. The seriousness of the competition makes Dance Moms more interesting to the audience, “That’s what I’m preparing you for, and that’s what this journey has been all along”. Another intriguing technique used to entertain the audience is when the producer included phone conversations so that the audience can hear first-hand that what is said on reality TV is actually true.
