The appreciation of Danceplus Spring
As the student of Dance appreciation, I am so luck to take this wonderful class this semester because that gives me a lot of opportunities to watch many amazing dance shows. I attended Danceplus Spring, the show was on 23th April 2016 at Mason Gross. It 's a great show, and it impressed me most. So I’d like to talk about this show today. I 'm willing to talk about it in details; the show is so great because it gives me a new feeling about dance. That means a lot for me.
I arrived Mason Gross at 7:00pm, before the show, every audiences are very excited, and we talk about how good this show is, and we are also talk about who is the best dancer of this show. The same expectation for the show makes us the

At the beginning of the show, all dancers stand in a row and some of them lift their foots successively. I think the choreographer wants us feel like in the rain forest, because the lights are green and they add some animal’s yawp. They want to make some interaction with audiences because during the show, many dancers come to forepart of the stage and make some interaction with audiences. They want the audiences move like them. That is very interesting, and also breaks the rules of traditional dance show. Even though they are free style, all dancers are very professional. Every one of them has their own styles, they have very different styles but they have good teamwork, all of their styles can work together make the show great. The music is the other part that make the show great, just like the dance, the music is also the free style it is change with the dance. they also ass many nature elements into the music, such as the rain, sound of wind, the sound of rain forest and so on. The choreographer try make more sense of hierarchy for the show for example, different dancers have different actions on the stage, if the dancers on the left dance, other dancers will run or stand on the right stage any way, choreographer will never make the stage boring. These different kinds of actions make the stage very interesting, and the most important point is that these different actions will not break …show more content…
However, for this part, I do remember every details the music, the light, the way they dance and their emotions. I can remember everything about this show. At that moment, I know I love this show, something actually make me feel that this is the show I love. I feel the power of the lives because dancers movements are powerful just like the beginning of lives; this power is so strong and pure. It is first time I feel this power on one show. People will get lots of problems, and some of these problems are too strong to knocked us over, some people give up but in this show, we can see the power to overcome the hard problems. It 's why I remember this part so clearly, because it let me know how to deal with these hard things in future. This is not only a dance show, but also a title, which makes me re-think about the relationship with others. In that show, ever dancers play a very important role of the show, some big some not, but everyone is indispensable, that make me think a lot. In the school, we can do things better with our partners and classmates; in the nature world the animals are also understand that, for instance, the hippo will never bite the “hippo bird” even though these little birds stand in their mouth. These little birds can help hippos clean their

    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.…
