They wore unitards so every inch of a dancer’s line is celebrated. Although some had random jewels on it that I thought did not fit the piece, the unitards definitely enhanced the ideas and themes of the dance. She also had dresses for girls and pants and shirts for guys in some pieces. In Nancy’s solo J, she was wearing a costume that had pants with very high slits, which showed off the lines of her legs. I find it interesting how O’Donnell used the unitards to detach a dancer of his or her gender to make all the dancers interchangeable.
I also hope to learn many different types of dance and understand where they developed. I like to hope that this class will help me learn to be more fluent with my motions and that I will be able to achieve the basic concept rhythm. I hope that through dance I will be able to use it as a stress reliever and that my body will take well to the new adventure it is about to endure. I’d like to take away new skills from the class and be able to use them to achieve fluent dance movements and become one with my body. I am excited to see the way in which my mind and body will connect together as one.
Page 1 Anna Halprin: Breath Made Visible The title of the film is Breath Made Visible and the main artists featured where Anna Halpin, Merce Cunningham, John Graham, and A.A. Leath. In the movie, all these artists where at some point team mates and danced together. Although the group ended up separating, their bond and love for each other still remains. I think it was awesome that after all those years they are still friends and keep in touch, that also shows they have a good relationship. The artists were very close and they all loved to dance together and learned from each other.
When thinking of comparing two things, I was having a hard time deciding on what I should discuss but it then dawned on me, I should write about something that was an enormous part of my life. Dance has played a huge role in my childhood as I participated in ballet for eleven years and tap for six. As a three year old all I did was beg to my parents to let me join a dance studio. I was the one and only three year old in the dance company. When my dance teacher informed me that she would soon be offering tap dance, I could not help but feel the need to participate.
“￼” was a really fun opening dance, it was full of inspiration and energy and got people interested and hooked to the show. “Time Out” was one of the most fun performances I thought, it was so silly and goofy. The dance had one female dancer on a chair playing around while she is supposed to be in time out, then there is a male dancer who is keeping an eye on her and keeping her in check. The
James addresses the emotional appeal, also known as Pathos, multiple times in this article. The first example is “dance is a form of celebration. It is artistic.” Dance is considered an art instead of a sport because of the ability the dancers have to turn their bodies into art pieces. It is considered a celebration because dance celebrates music and movement. Dancers tend to become emotionally attached to the piece of music they are dancing to and are able to create a story with their movement, they have to ability to bring a piece of music to life, which is why it is considered an art or celebration.
The year after that I added in a jazz class, and then a contemporary class. I was at the studio five days a week and I couldn’t have been any happier. When I was twelve I tried out for the Starbound dance company at my studio which is the competitive dance team. I was very nervous because it was my first solo I have performed, but I made the team my first year. I was ecstatic and remember shrieking and jumping up and down as I ran to my parents and they hugged me.
It seems like it was just yesterday when I decided on what I wanted to do or to be in my life.Time has gone by but I still have the same idea and that is being a music teacher. When I was younger everything around me, including the people, influenced me to want to teach music . As a teenager I started working every summer at a music camp in New Orleans.

My first year here was difficult but by my second year I became someone my peers and younger kids than me looked up to.
Multiculturalism: Who Says What is Important? As a junior in high school, a close friend and I sat in our history class wondering where all the diversity was throughout history. As the school year passed by, Black History Month came about, revealing where the rest of the history had gone. It was saved to seemingly be crammed into the shortest month, also the only month which is modifiable every four years.
