Vickie Sears’ did a great job on explaining the Native American Elements throughout the story while explaining how Clarissa overcame her label. Clarissa started off as an unstable child, but now through her Native American culture she made a huge turn around and became a great dancer just like Molly Graybull. Clarissa learned dancing through experience, listening, observing and doing. Oral traditions were very important to Clarissa so she attended the women’s traditional. Last but not least Clarissa maintained her traditions, native language and culture by practicing dance and expressing that she was
Dance Critique I had the pleasure of watching the greatly talented UCLA dance team in their 2009, 2010, and 2011 National Competition. The UCLA dance team consists of 11 girls. All of these girls went through a very difficult audition process in order to become a member of the team. Being a part of a Dance Team like UCLA requires dedication and commitment to dancing. UCLA dance team members work very hard to perfect dances for sports events and various competitions.
The female dancers are very slim and the male dancers appear to be very strong, this makes it easier for the contact work within the dance. For example, again in section two a male and female dancer are positioned centre stage. The male dancer is knelt on the floor and the female dancer sits on his knee. This shows passion as it could be seen as flirtatious/something that you would expect a couple to do. The male dancer then lifts the lady over his knee until she is standing up; this could show power as the male dancer is creating the movements for her and therefore has control.
There are many different meanings for the term team player one is “A person who plays or works well as a member of a team or group.” Although I knew the real definition of this word, I had to find out my own definition to have a better understanding of this meaning. When learning how to be a team player your mind, soul, and body have to be open to open to learning how to adjust and learn a different way of acting. My first personal experience learning how to be a team player happened in middle school, 7th grade to be exact. I joined a local dance performing company where I surpassed a lot of other students in jazz, hip hop, and ballet. In every dance performance are company had I excelled and was pushed to the front, in doing that, I became big-headed and thought I was the best and that no one could tell me anything.
Falling Angels is a dance choreographed by Jiri Kylian and is accompanied by the song Drumming from Steve Reiches. The relationship between the music and the dance is fully represented in sections throughout the piece. Kylian finished the dance in 1989 which is a period when there was a variety of music and freedom within the movement of dance. Falling Angels is performed by eight women dancing to rhythmic drumming. Women in that period of time had stepped forward in their position of power and were equal to men in the economy, this may have been a reason Kylian chose only female dancers.
Suggestions for Improvement – Variables that might have influenced the outcome of my experiment were how fast or vigorous a person was dancing compared to another, someone’s motivation to squeeze the clothes pin more than others, and the amount of time each person rested before squeezing clothes pins for the first time. Suggestions for Further Research – My suggestions for other investigations that could be done to further support my findings or to answer any new questions that came up during this experiment are to warily time the amount of time the tested students were resting before squeezing the clothes pins and to have all ten students dance in the same way and pace as everyone else to have more control in this
Pomline is mostly considered a dance team because all they do is dance, and perform at dance showcases. Pomline is a great activity to stay healthy and strong. Cheerleading on the other hand cheers. They say chants, and cheers, and they do little movements that aren’t really considered dances. Cheerleaders have to be very stiff in everything they do.
Target Market Selection Eliza Minden should target professional dancers. Professional dancers are aware of how ballet slippers should fit and function, including breaking in slippers. Because of this familiarity professional dancers will be able to truly evaluate the superior durability and comfort, and the benefits of a dance-ready slipper. Professionals are heavy individual consumers, but can also influence production companies to make even greater purchases. Professionals also have influence over students, either through their status and renown, or through the process of teaching.
and Maya Angelou. People like Bethany Hamilton and Jenifer Ringer who just epitomized strength and passion for what they love are motivating to read about. Getting to take a look inside of their lives and almost seep into their mindsets is an experience that a lot of people would appreciate. Jenifer Ringer was a dancer who struggled with ridicule that she was not skinny enough to be a dancer, and then she struggled with multiple eating disorders. Throughout all of this Jenifer kept dancing because it was how she conveyed her messages that she could not put into words, but her body could transmit.
