It also introduces a secondary feature of the film: the detachment from reality. In this scene the story The Red Shoes by Hans Christian Andersen, is roughly revisited as a ballet. A woman, played in the ballet by Victoria, buys a pair of beautiful red shoes from a mysterious shoemaker, and wears them to go to the ball. As the ball ends, she is fatigued, but the red shoes are not and force her to continue dancing till her death. The scene starts off as a normal ballet, on a stage with a painted backdrop.

Hurricanes and blizzards are two very potent forces of Mother Nature. Each of these punishing storms can cause excessive damage, but under different conditions. Blizzards engross an area with mass amounts of snow while hurricanes have trampling rain and tremendous winds. Although there are many differences between the two, they do have a few resemblances. They are both convection storms, which means rising air causes low pressure and, in turn, makes air rush in from surrounding areas to create very strong winds.

His warm-ups technical promotes body alignment, balance, core strength, and “feelings from inside.” This method became the first know technique in jazz and musical theatre.

The dancers in “Cool” move around but stay in the same area or room as they group dance in a setting similar to the one in “Bad.” The movement in Michael Jackson’s “Bad” is very quick as they move from move to move, swaying their hips and dancing to the beat. The dance is at a fast pace as they dancers are constantly moving form place to place as they execute their moves. West Side Story’s “Cool” has a slower movement as they dance to an orchestra and sing. They throw their hands in the air often and move at a slower pace while also staying in the same place for the most part.

Susan hill creates tension in many ways. Hill refers to the weather quite frequently in the novel, it is used to set the tone of the story and to provide teasing hints which build up the tension. This changes the mood of the novel at the time. At the beginning the weather is described with “We had had rain, thin, chilling rain and a mist that lay low above the house,” which implies that something should be happening soon but it doesn’t reveal the events. The weather at the start of the horror story is much worse, and it begins with an exaggerated description of the fog in London.
Everything makes the show fantastic, and brilliant. The first scene in second part was impressive as well. The first scene is “Masquerade/Why So Silent”, one of my favorite parts of the show.
