Dance can show us a variation of things whether it is a story plot or retelling history events. Dance becomes an art when done with passion and enthusiasm. The audience can connect and respond with the dancer if done properly. When we use dancing in a story line musical we are attempting to give the audience a deeper understanding. As every story every musical has a “moral to the story” or main idea.
The most successful aspect of the performance for me were the scene changes. I found that the rotation of the blackboard, center stage, where the actors were able to stoop beneath it in order to enter and exit the stage, was an effective touch to this
The play was very well done and was not dull even though it was catered to a large audience. The musical numbers are very entertaining, and the spectacle, both visual and emotional, is well accomplished. I would recommend this to most children and adults, due to the Christmas themes and general lightheartedness of the play.
This was particularly exciting because the music was written and sung by Beyonce, a majority favorite. However, the costumes lacked coordination and seemed put together very last minute. Although, the purple and red vests did match the lighting which added a unique touch. The dance moves were fun and upbeat which allowed for the audience to enjoy themselves and experience the joy the dancers expressed. The dance truly attempted and succeeded at displaying the true spirit of Beyonce. Also, the dance moves seemed to have been carefully planned out to their fullest potential. The originality of the dance was exceptional which was one of the many components that cultivated its excellent
Music makes a significant touch on dance and make either enthusiastic or boring. The chorographer of the first show, the process, did not use any music in the dance, and the only sound that we were hearing is his breath since the hall is quite. That actually makes the audience focus on the movement of the dancer only without listening to any music. The music of the second performance was soft and quiet and pauses when the dancers talk. It influenced my feelings and reaction where it clearly illustrated that it is a romantic dance. However, the music of the last dance, Breakfast Burrito, was creative and affective, and make the audience more interactive with the dance. Moreover, the
Our Town was done very differently than the other plays I have read and I thought it was interesting. I liked that the stage manager broke the fourth wall multiple times and spoke to the audience, creating more interaction with them and keeping people entertained and drawn in. They also placed actors in the audience for a scene. I think this is a
Overall it held my attention. The comedy injected into this play allowed for the more poignant messages to be driven home. I could relate to the respective arguments of the two men. It makes you
I also think the choreography with the singing was very well planed out because it made sense and helped tell the story very well it also helped keep the audience intrigued. I Think the environment of the theater was good because I didn't not notice any phones in use also everyone was quiet and respectful. The only issue was the play is was very long and they waited to long for a intermission and the room is full of very small children, so they started to get a little antsy and that was a little
The dance choreography in the musical was very good and flowed very freely with each song. For example, all the characters danced in the opening with smooth glides and transitions. When the circus came to town, the dance choreography worked the entire stage.
That was until the “strange” music started and the dancers came out moving the portable flats to create imageries. It was really distracting having some of the dancers, usually a male and a female, narrate the story while others danced on stage the same time. I was so captivated and drawn into the dialogue being shared that I forgot at the initial part of the performance that I came to watch a dance. I had to adjust my eyes to see the whole stage so I don’t miss a
The music for this production was very vague. The only music that accompanied this play was during the set changes. At first, I felt as if the music was appropriate because it
The element that stood out the most to me was how effectively the music and the footwork corresponded. The best examples of this are seen through the dancers solos. Especially Albrecht's solo, his feet glide on the stage at the same tempo as the music. Similarly, Giselle's graceful footwork is truly amazing. I really like the similarities between the choreographed footwork and the music, it makes Giselle seem much more elegant and
I have always been a fan of this play, it is not only easy to follow but keeps you guessing what is next to come throughout the entire show. I went to the play with my roommate who surprisingly did not like the play, she stated the plot was boring and felt like the humor was forced and hard to follow. The repeated theme of the play is tradition and how it
From these two dance performances I observed that the space and interactions they had with each other was an excellent one the dancers were secure, they knew what they were doing obviously, the counting’s were perfect, I can also tell the put a lot of effort to bringing this together in such a small time, and the energy and feeling they were putting was a big great one and that actually made me enjoy more the dances. Overall all the dance performances were amazing but what did dot worked for me were the slow ballet type dances because the music makes me bored but the dances were really good and they put a lot f effort and feelings to them that I actually felt them and it was weird but I liked it. There were a lot of dance moves that I was able
