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.
With beautiful dancing, costumes, and music by Tchaikovsky, America fell in love with Serenade and it is still admired today as classic American ballet. Balanchine turned his focus back to the European aesthetic classic values and really embodied these in his choreography. He believed that simplicity created beauty and thought that movement was the most important element in any ballet. You can see this simplicity in the staging, costume and scenery in Serenade. He created live geometry with his incredible use of space, and created long lines and beautiful movement that was very light, free and quick.
In the long run, it can help prevent Alzheimer’s as someone ages. In my opinion, this dance is very fun and easy to learn. It provides an outlet to meet new people and be active. It allows people to overcome challenges and make mistakes in a supportive environment. Although it is unlike an intense workout session, it still has its own health benefits that help people of any age remain healthy – whether physically, mentally, or
I love this piece because it ends the first act on such a high positive note and is a great precursor to the title song. Another song I enjoyed was “Hello Dolly”. “Hello Dolly” is the big show stopping number. It is Dolly’s triumphant return to where she belonged. I love Dolly’s soft vocal line in the beginning of the song but as soon as the waiters come in they make her feel at home, she becomes more at ease and joins the waiters in this big bold brassy sound.
The dancers stand at the ballroom rail where they are statured in abstract and carnal positions. The girls perform the piece commenting on their audience and one man in particular as ‘big spenders’. The choreography is sharp but includes an element of snake-like shadiness as the dancer’s motive becomes more defined. The piece is filmed from the audience’s perspective, creating a feeling as if the dance is directed at the viewer of the movie. The musicality of this dance and The Rich Man’s Frug is highly polished thereby bringing a greater intensity to the
This movie will be fun because Madea have always had a background for making funny movies. The movie will be fun because it shows in the commercial Madea is afraid, and that's a instinct she usually doesn't have in movies. Then it shows that Madea hitting a clown,
Every time a character would break out in song dance, it always correlated with the feelings they had. The famous scene of Lockwood singing in the rain portrayed the actual happiness that the character was feeling in that moment. As an audience member, the scene did not feel strange because the average individual knows what it’s like to be so happy, you feel like singing and dancing. The MGM musicals produced by Arthur Freed specifically combined surrealistically imaginative musical numbers, enjoyable scores, a pleasing use of color, and funny, spoofing plots that often still related to the
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.
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. Abby has a pyramid of the dancers that performed the best at the competition, this gives the impression that she favors certain dancers and as a result of this commotion breaks out and it entertains the audience as the moms
Swing music did just that. It helped people let loose of their emotions and forget about the war and their personal lives for a few minutes. One way that they did this was the development of the swing dance. This dance was very popular and fun. In this style of dancing, people do not stop moving.
I enjoyed all the pieces, but my favorite was “Twelve Days of Christmas” because it was catchy and really enjoyable. I really like how they kind of split the parts towards the end when the guys continued singing the chorus at a quicker speed and the girls sung the chorus at a higher tempo, but a slower speed. This had a good effect on the enjoyment of the song. It was something I was not expecting to hear, so when it happened it kind of caught my attention. This group had more confidence in their performance and honestly I think confidence has a big affect on stage appearance and performance.
