    My second performance in this class is to focus on how to strengthen a performance by focusing on the juxtapositions of an ethnographic object. For my object, I have chosen an award that I won for storytelling. In my performance, the audience will be able to see not only the long hours and hard work that one must put into craft a performance that is supposed to look effortless. I will be constructing this performance with the aid of lights, sound, audience set-up, props, and costume. I will be looking closely at the history awards, then I will be examining my performance under three different theories, and analyzing how it fulfills a learning objective for this class in this paper. Awards were created by man at a very early point in its history in order to reward people for showing his or her superior strengths to others. An early example of an award in society is in ancient Nasca society and their…

    of the Senior Dance Concert comprised of six dances. These performances were one of a kind in their own specific manner, however, they were all hard to understand. The piece comprised of different movements and themes. The first dance was called "Synastry." This piece begins exceptionally dim. The majority of the entertainers are wearing distinctive types of clothing. The music in this piece helps me to remember music you would hear in a thriller movie, for example, Halloween. The movement of…

    dance show, I did not know what to expect. I know it would be a whole lot better than the dance concerts I had to be a part of in high school. However not as magical as concerts seen in the Medical Center of Lewisville Dance Theatre, but the magic is all in our heads. We chose what speaks to us, we chose what can change our perspective. The audience must be actively participating during the show, in order to have an enriching experience. This show is not intended to be entertainment, but an…

    shown to influence performance on various cognitive and motor tasks. Depending on the task, music can help or hinder a persons performance. In addition to influencing task performance, it has been suggested that listening to music activates the motor regions of the brain (Chen, Penhune, & Zatorre, 2008; Zatorre, Chen, & Penhune, 2007). Simply having music training has lead to different effects on brain activity and task performance when compared to those without music training. Therefore, this…

    After remembering the elements of each performance, the three that were most memorable are: “Swan Lake,” Harlequin “Pax De Deux,” and “Opaque, Unfazed.” Each captivated me throughout the night and I am glad I had the opportunity to attend. “Swan Lake,” Act II, started strong by illuminating blue light and covering the stage with fog as Odette flutters her wings. While I did feel slightly disappointed at the coordination of movements and music between Odette and Prince Siegfried, in the end 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.

To see many talented students in our school was amazing. All the dances were extraordinary but two of them stood out to me Alors on Danse and What it is. The concert…

    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.

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. In introducing…
