    • 5 Pages

    question was: What are the responsibilities required to be a dance captain, and how can choreography efficiently be taught? The first thing I did was collaborate with the director. This gave me an understanding of what her vision was for choreography and what my duties. She gave me the freedom to create the big Hand Jive dance number. She also gave me a schedule of what I had to work on for each day. While she was away working with certain cast members, I was in charge of rehearsing other…

    Rather than explaining the procedure, I exclaimed, “Do the dance!” Recalling the choreography I taught her to remember the steps for assembling our rocket, she swung a cupped hand over her head then made a fist and lowered it back in front of her, which signified the first step of removing the rocket nose and placing the payload inside. After some movements she said, “I remember! Pack the parachute in the…

    Sharira Dance Analysis

    • 756 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Sharira. What is particularly interesting in this performance is that it being not only about the body and it’s corporeal contours within a given choreography but also the sexed body and it’s tussles, intimacies, desires mapped out in a performance space. The performance, in my opinion hinges largely towards a kind of choreographic shift in dance that prioritises the bodily over tradition and the traditional; as also contemporary and contemporariness.

    The final exam for modern 1 this semester allowed me to look at myself in a different light. Throughout the semester I have been working on memorizing choreography for myself rather than relying my peers to memorize the choreography for me. This combination allowed for me to strengthen this specific semester goal, while also allowing me to perform this piece as a solo. This paper will focus on what I saw in myself during the video exam. It will also reflect on how I was feeling while performing…

    Swan Lake has been performed throughout the world for more than a hundred years by major ballet companies and famous ballet dancers. It is a satisfying saga of love, longing, betrayal, death, and transcendence, brought to the stage with beautiful choreography and wonderful music. According to Juhasz, although companies have usually made changes to Petipa and Ivanov’s nineteenth-century choreography to suit the aesthetic of the time or a particular choreographer’s vision, all in all most versions…

    Modern Dance Class I went to observe the modern dance class on a thursday morning. This class was split into six different groups of at least 5 people in each. They were all taught a choreography a couple of days before and everything had to be memorized by the time it was their turn to dance. The class as a whole is doing well in communicating and in waiting for each other as they dance. These groups were randomly chosen and they all had to work together to make the choreography look nice,…
