These two members have been seen in previous numbers dancing, which is yet another example of the versatility Fosse expected from his dancers. This specific piece is a part of part one, which ironically is the second section of Fosse. It begins with one single dancer on the stage. This dancer sets the entire mood simply by stylistically moving her arm, slowly. After she begins to move from her opening position, other dancers slowly come on either one by one, or in small groups.
Provoking the Moor to a battle, Petrushka is finally killed by the Moor’s sword. Petrushka’s spirit dies along with him. Fokine emphasizes the use of the body, space, music, and energy in his ballet to display his ideas on highly dramatic and innovative contemporary styles of dance. Petrushka is widely appreciated for its transition out of traditional ballet and into individuality amongst the characters in performances. Fokine introduced
The full ensemble enters again raising the dynamics to forte before decrescendoing and slowing down to end with a held note and final tone. The first movement of the Swan Lake Suite, Scene, which began with the violins playing with an oboe solo on top. The oboe was playing various crescendos and decrescendos at a mezzo piano dynamic and the tempo was moderate. This ends with the high woodwinds playing a string of the melody, passing it to the low brass with the strings very quietly in the background and then what seemed to be a diminuendo. The second movement of the Swan Lake
• Music: • Music was composed by Igor Stravinsky • The composer contributed to the libretto. • Violinist was Marcel Darrieux • The score of Apollon Musagète is written for strings only and is consistently classical in style: dry harmonies, an abundance of perfect chords, rare polytonal superimposition. Those are borrowed from the past (from Lully and Delibes), but divested of all historical reference to achieve an abstract purity. • Stravinsky began Apollo on 16 July 1927, and completed the score on 9 January 1928. He chose to make a ballet blanc, which he composed for a refined instrumental force, manifested as a string orchestra of 34 instrumentalists: 8 first violins, 8 second violins, 6 violas, 4 first cellos, 4 second cellos and 4 double basses • Stravinsky had centered Apollo music in Greek mythology.
The party wouldn't be a party without the entertainment. During the dinner, to a surprise, the young girl and her damas and chambalians presented a dance to the crowd.

It was partially mesmerised by the piece 'The Nutcracker' and wanted to find out more about why ‘The Nutcracker’s music is so interesting. This piece is like a massive dance of about 200 people. He was really ambitious about it. Also, he wanted to have the whole stage full of dancers. The interesting fact was that the under study can be either a guy or a girl.
It was made up of dancers from the French community who had been exiled from the Russian Revolution. Diaghilev and the composer Igor Stravinsky fused their talents to bring Russian folklore to "The Firebird" and "Petrushka" with choreography by Fokine. Another choreography by Diaghilev was given to Nijinsky. His first ballet piece was L'apres-midi d'un Faune with music by Debussy. The most controversial presentation of the Ballets Russes was "The Rite of Spri", choreographed by Nijinsky with music by Stravinsky.
The narrator’s use of imagery to describe young lust when he pounders at the female dancer is surreal and offers much needed detail to further understand his mindset. He first uses auditory imagery to set the scene by saying “A clarinet was vibrating sensuously…”(Ellison 15), the keyword here is “sensuously” which is knowingly a reference to the pleasure the clarinet gives to the narrator. Although “vibrating” is used to describe the sound of the clarinet, it can also be argued as a description for touch since vibrations are usually associated with pleasure as well. Another very notable use of imagery is when the narrator says “And then she began to dance, a slow sensuous movement…”(Ellison 16), again the word “sensuous” is used by the
