Which was the first multi racial in the U.S. and it was during a time when the United States still had racism.

I think everyone as a children has the dream of one day to become someone famous in life.
In the video, the dance looked like it was very easy to execute but having already been in the technique class all year, it is amazing to know that doing the movements correctly is actually difficult. May O’Donnell constructs her pieces with the use of spacial structure. She organizes her dancers so that different groups are spread out differently throughout the stage and at times she uses all dancers in one singular spacial structure, like a diagonal.

She also uses many other choreographic tools to keep the attention of the audience and bring contrast to her piece.
