Critical analysis of “Badgerette Showcase”
I attended the dance concert called “Badgerette Showcase” on March 3, 2016 at 7:30 PM in Horne Activity Center. This concert consisted of 21 unique performances performed by a lot of Utah schools, dance groups and cheerleaders. I picked 4 performances that I liked the best and I am going to be writing about them. Before the show started, the coach introduced all Badgerettes that are in the team this year and that were performing that night.
First performance that I really liked is called “Get It” by Badgerettes. It is choreographed by Chalyn Dye. It started with about 15 girls in the middle of the podium. In the rhythm of the music they spread around using the space pretty well. Footwork and arm waving was used and went with the music. I don’t think the name of the dance “Get It” meant anything. It was just a name of the song, and also it

It was choreographed by Brooke Cherry. Dancers, ages around 9 ­ 10, were wearing blue dresses with white polkadots and as a prompt everyone had a broom. At the beginning one by one started popping out and standing up as they were all down on the floor before the music started. Movement was very synchronized which means that all girls were doing the same thing. The name of the dance “Dear Future Husband” was the name of the song used for this performance. Lighting didn’t have any effect to the performance, as said in the previous part. Choreographer made this dance look really fun, and appropriate for little girls that were dancing it. They were in no way shape or form professionals, but getting there. I liked the dance because the song they were dancing to has a strong message about what a girl deserves and how a man should be treating her. Even though it was a sloppy dance, those girls were

    Mainly because I never had the opportunity to watch a dance concert, it was a great experience. Before the concert begun, I was super thrilled and excited to watch it. As I’m watching each work, I think to myself and say “Wow these are amazing dancers, I wonder if they major in dancing too. They’re just so good!” Coming to conclusion, I found out I was completely wrong. At the end of the show I met one of the dancers, her name was Kate, she wasn’t a dance major but dancing was one of her passions.…

    I went to go see the University Dance Theater Spring Concert on April 13, 2016 at 8:00 pm. This concert had ten different dance performances, each representing a different style of dance.

The guest artist for this year’s spring concert Ann Sofie Clemmensen.

    We were proud to show the routine, and out partner move, to the full house, without fail. In dance, dreams can become a reality. I was fourteen when my ballet teacher allowed me to get my first pair of pointe shoes. I was ecstatic. My mom drove me to the dancewear store.…

    I dance because it brings back memories of when I was a child. Dancing with my aunt was a very fun family bonding activity that none of my other relatives can relate to me. With dancing I realize that I can express my emotions; when I am sad, angry, happy, frustrated, etc. Instead of taking my anger on people I can express it through dancing. Dancing is not only for fun, but a way to express yourself.…

    I have been on the team for two years dancing with the junior varsity, my freshman and sophomore year. I got chosen to choreograph and teach several dances throughout the two years. I was always put in the front for routines. So, I was for sure making it, I thought. Ever since the coaches started the dance team at Blue Valley North, it has always been a big team.…

    The performance “Vagabond” stood out to me because it was not just a typical dance performance. It was unique in the way that it translated music and dance into life stories. It was heart provoking and evoked emotion to the audience through unconventional movement. The dancers that performed were not afraid to get out of their comfort zone or surrender themselves to the ground. They developed a connection with the audience and pulled them in to see the real world around them.…

    I found this interesting because if I had not read the dancers bio, I am not positive that I would have even noticed. Both dancers performed the same movement with the same strength: disability or not. I especially enjoyed this duet and constantly found myself questioning, “How can my body movement inspire my partners?” This is a concept I saw frequently in this piece and I am interested in exploring it myself. The movement seemed extremely natural; the dancers were not trying to move each other. Instead…

    Even though, it could be done with either male or female, I believe that the dance was best with both genders because it gave the audience a way to contrast between the characters’ personalities. It reminded me a lot of how a married couple feels about each other or jealousy took a toll on a relationship by using music that was light-hearted, and upbeat. To compliment the music, many of the movements were angular, abrupt, and uplifting with various levels of high, medium, and low. The male had strong, dominant jumps, and movements toward the audience member and the female dance; yet, he was loving with his movements to show he was just someone who wanted to be loved. Whereas, the female dancer, she was sassy, jealous, and wanted to take away the happiness of the male.…
