    Martha Graham’s “Lamentation,” like many of her other works, is a direct expression of emotion; an expression of emotion through body movements.

This technique was in efforts to develop and maintain flexibility in the spine and hips, specifically in a seated position. “Lamentation” was created in response to the grief, sorrow and anger during the Great Depression. This piece was simplistic but spoke so much through the use of her body and facial expressions. The video features an interview Graham had in 1976, following the “Lamentation” performed by Peggy Lyman. From the beginning of this piece at 1:30 to 1:48, there’s a sense of confusion or the feeling of being lost. This piece was meant to share feelings and emotions and the dance start with the expression of denial or being unable to accept what’s happening in her surrounding. Although, the legs stayed still in its rectangular form as she was sitting on the bench, her upper body was the main focus. Her elbows were in a triangular form and resting on her knees. While her torso was still, the only part of her body moving was her head; shaking from left to right.

    Atwood Narrative As the leaves bristle and the thin sheets of wind intrude through the slender opening of the window of the bus, sat a grey backpack with a variety of stickers scattered onto the fabric in diverse figures and colors, each giving the dull backpack a sense of flare. Besides the backpack displayed a boy sitting on a cold, leather seat, crossing his arms, a picture of his grandfather-who served in Camp Grant, now called Atwood- clenched tightly against his chest. “Now reaching…

    They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.” (John 21:6) What I had envisioned was right there in front of me, I could see it with my own eyes. I could hear the screaming and just like taking a snapshot, I photographed in my soul all the people’s happy faces that were participating in that momentary joy. I was surprised and plunged into a profound sense of humility in receiving such a gift. I stood on the side and watched the people’s happiness that…

    She intuitively uses her inside edge to push off in a diagonal, outwards direction to increase her speed. Her stride lengths are decent but could be improved by simply keeping her skates parallel to the ice and gliding longer after each push.

Dixie took a step back, shrinking away from Shane as he approached. She shifted her weight to her left foot turned slightly so that her right side was out of everyone’s line of sight and snaked…

    best or right answer, and likes working with the tried and true, and getting the most out of what already exists.
