60x60 Dance choreographer: Dance society:

60x60 Dance choreographer: Dance society Thesis statement: These dance performances at first confused me , because the message seemed unclear to me .Then when I figured out it was a modern abstract pieces throughout the hour. The message seemed to be nature orientated, then everyday , and random futuristic. There was no clear cut answer to what was the main idea of the choreographer. Every piece was a little different on what they were conveying , but all the dances were a modern dance style.

Example one :

Example one The costumes are where you get the sense of the message of the different pieces. Like an example would be in the videos in between the performances . It had the nature aspect and you could tell the temperature by the clothing.

Evaluation I enjoyed the dance once I sorted out what I thought it was about . At first it was hard to enjoy, because I couldn’t understand what the choreographer was trying to convey. Strengths: Dance quality, Music Selection, and Movement Weakness: Lighting , Costumes, and Transitions Once I fully understood what the choreographer was trying to convey . I think the message was portrayed well with its dancing style and skill. In some dances the costuming could have been different . To help convey the message to match the music in the background. For example the trio their costumes were bright , but the music wasn’t bright it was a wind noise.
