She would sit with her head held high, great poster, and always had a smile. In all, the musical was done wonderfully. She reacted well with others characters throughout the play. As she sung, she used face expressions to depict her feelings. The way she changed clothes so fast was just truly unbelievable.
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.
If you slowed down Coles and Atkins clip, then Jackson 5 and Coles and Atkins performed similar dances minus the tapping. Cole and Atkins cross their feet multiple times, moving their arms in the same motion, and then they spin. The music gives off a free vibe, like Josephine Baker, for their dance looks choreographed and improvised. I think during this time music started to slow dance, and it was not as fast of a beat. Another difference, audiences became more integrate.

“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.

A response from one of the adults he questioned states: “We love the beautiful dresses and big hairstyles. We love the bling and makeup.

Ethel Merman Ethel Merman was an actress and singer known for her many theatrical performances, especially her role as Rose in Gypsy. I reviewed a performance in which she sang Some People from Gypsy and had several duets with Fred Astaire. This was a quick and comedic performance, that was quite enjoyable to review. I believe that Ethel Merman was a true star shown in her volume, use of air, unique tone quality, posture, diction, and range that all strive towards the typical broadway bold and strong performance. Ethel Merman’s voice could be described as big, broad, and bright.
The first of these two lines is a quatrain that highlights the bold eyes of a dancing girl. Additionally, the rhyme scheme is CCDD. A couplet comes after this quatrain and is followed by a quintet. The lines within the quintet include names like “Eve”, who serves as a biblical allusion, and Cleopatra, who serves as a historical allusion. Hughes purposely juxtaposes the “dancing girl” in the quatrain with two prominent women figures to illustrate the transformative effects of jazz.
Peyton Williamson Professor Tanya Boler English 223301 March 23, 2015 Analysis of the Modern Connections Present in “The Love Story of J. Alfred Prufrock” T.S. Elliot was one of the most well-read literary composers and seemed to be his own endless book of literary references. His mind could simply make literary connections in a work without his actual conscious consent. There were times when his own literary works were made up almost entirely of allusions to other works of literature. Elliot simply used these allusions to tell his own story, sometimes giving new meanings to quotes, or adding emphasis to new words or phrases.
The way Chopin uses dialogue, a secret language and the narrator’s descriptions relate to the theme of identity, and often places it subtly at the centre of the reader’s consciousness. It would be difficult to read ‘The Awakening’ without an awareness of Chopin’s clever use of certain phrases or words to present the concepts of different identities within the text. This essay will explore in depth the relationship between Chopin’s use of language and the concept of identity. The reader is introduced to the concept of identity in ‘The Awakening’ almost immediately. Within the first few pages of the novel, the use of the narrator creates a patriarchal sense of social identities (Ramos 147).
