Response Paper Dance

Response Paper: Dance
Question 1:
What do you think the choreographer/dancer relationship should be?
The relationship amid the dance and the choreographer should compare to that of a daughter and
a mother. That is, the latter ought to be motivating the dancer to come out as the best performer.
Strictly speaking, he or she should offer tips for improvement and discourage the dancer from
giving up by training the dancer always to see possibilities and not impossibilities. Besides, it is
the duty of a choreographer to trust and challenge the dancer. In this way, she/he will make sure
that the dancer puts sufficient effort given adequate resources.
Question 2:
Choose one choreographer from the first video folder. How do you notice they are using
space, time, and energy in their piece?
The chosen choreographers from the first folder have used energy, time, and space to their
benefit via extracting their own thoughts and ideas by employing different dance styles
(Abraham, 2012). The piece heavily depends on group movements. In turn, this creates isolation
among the dancers (Rhein, 2007). For instance, the other dancers are isolating the male dancer in
the center. Also, the piece, at its initial stages, is full of energy. Notably, the dancers swing their
arms with great enthusiasm.
Question 3:
Choose one or more performer from the second video folder. In what ways do you see the
performer(s) making the choreography "come alive"?
From the second video folder, the chosen performers do a great job at making the choreography
"come alive." They do this in many ways. For instance, the two young men (dancers) make
moves, which are more modern (Kelly & O'Connor, 2008). The movements are also aligned to
the tune. These combine to make the choreography come alive. Furthermore, the dancers seem to
move from one part of the stage to another, an aspect that makes the performance unique. As if
that is not sufficient, the dancers use their movement to bring liveliness to the performance,
thereby enhancing the choreography.
