Dance Concert Essay: The Boxer Dance Review

Improved Essays
This past weekend, at the Stevie Eller Dance Theatre at the University of Arizona, I went to see the dance performance Here & Now. As I was buying my ticket, I did not really know what to expect from this concert. To be honest, I did not know really anything about this show that I had just paid to see. Originally, I thought that this show would just be a requirement for me to pass this class. However, after seeing this show, it became much more to me than just a grade. The dancers were astounding and the songs were so catchy that I never wanted the show to end. This show was definitely worth my time and money, and I will tell you why.
The show started off amazing with the dance The Boxer, and after that it just kept getting better. One of the performances that I really enjoyed was the performance called Bell & String. This dance took place in the first half of the show and was executed by two performers, Micah Chermak and Jadyn Reddy. Jadyn Reddy was an amazing performer. She was so flawless with the way she moved her body and really stood out in every performance that she partook in. The dance composed of the two dancers being dressed with only half of their clothes. From the beginning of the performance, one could see the two dancers shared such a passion from the beginning to the end. Throughout the song, Tissue

Watching performers in videos or on television is completely different than actually experiencing it. When I am watching a dance routine on the Internet, I still enjoy the dance, but I do not feel as if I am apart of the dance or feeling the same emotions that I did during the live performance. While I was watching the performance, I felt as if I was on stage with them, or at least I wanted to be on stage with the dancers because they were having such an amazing time. When the music is playing so loud and all around one, they cannot help but sing along with the

    On Tuesday, November 17, 2015, I had the pleasure of viewing AXIS Dance Company. The show was help at the NJPAC in Newark New Jersey, at 7:30 pm. Prior to viewing the show; I possessed little to know information on the company. This was a new concept for me: I usually like to do a lot of research before I go to see a dance company. I wanted this time to be different.…

    A dancer’s final moments in the wing never change, yet somehow they are never the same. The adrenaline rush pushes her to dance differently than she has in any rehearsal. She can feel the friendly admiration each pair of eyes generates, creating an echoing eerie yet energetic silence. The stares permeate the skin and flow into the bloodstream, heart and body. The Grande jetés are more extended, the développés higher, every pirouette quicker, and each port de bras more…

    All the dancers that participated in it all had their own personal stories that they could relate to which made the dance so special. Everyone was truly happy to be performing and telling the story. Another thing that really worked well with the dance was all the different parts throughout the dance along with the formations. Never did I once get bored and drift off into space while that dance was on stage. The choreography was so dynamic and unique that you never knew what to watch because everything that was going on was so beautiful.…

    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.…

    On Saturday November 22, 2014 I attended the university dance theatre. I have to say if it weren’t mandatory for dance class I would have probably not gone. Personally I have never been interested in dance performances. I love dancing at parties but never thought of dance as a concert I would go too. I am glad I went because it was an experience and as a college student I want to experience new things.…

    The lighting above the car was flickering and then randomly stop and proceed with the steps all over again. The professionalism of the lights was not there like it should’ve been. I believe more time and practice could be solved this problem in no time. Self- Actualization a Concert of Dance was my favorite production throughout the entire semester. Each piece gave off their own energy and meaning, this kept the audience’s attention.…

    So a good tap dance should make us feel happy. First of all, the music they chose are all very joyful. Especially the musical “Celebrate”. All performers dressed like a real circus troupe like red or green court dress with really dramatic decorative pattern. The scene looked like there is something really great happen in a castle, so the king asked some people play a show for that.…

    The name of the performance should be called “The Art of Adventure” and it should be divided into subgenres which focuses on the main theme adventure. Adventure can be dim or bright but they always seem to have a long lasting well produced ending. The performance attempted to give a dark but loving story which will keep you amused throughout the whole concert. I learned a lot about the choreographers in the performance by the way they presented themselves. Presentation means a lot and the way they proceeded was professional.…

    Reflection Paper On Zumba

    The class definitely had an energetic and party-like feel. It was really fun, we stayed active for the whole hour and a half with some water breaks in between. We danced to mostly Latin music but also danced to Caribbean, African, Hip-hop, and some Korean pop music. I learned that Zumba is not just for Latin music, but any style of music can be used as long as it keeps the class active and is easy to dance to. One of the things that I was wrong about was that the people who were in the class came from all sorts of cultural backgrounds.…
