Our class watched this video called Singing in the rain by Gene Kelly, In this blog post we need to give our opinion about rhythm,prop,expression and moving through spaces.
The main thing he used as a prop is a umbrella, He uses it as a guitar and a balancing stick. He used the umbrella as a umbrella too. The umbrella was used for his dancing and he used to walk while it was raining. At the end a cop comes out and stares at him so he left and gave the umbrella to another person.
In this video the Rhythm he used was too important because it makes the viewer more interested. He had allot of good Rhythm like when he was jumping on the water, just like tap dancing. The Rhythm was also Important because It was Jazz and Jazz always needs Rhythm especially on the old days.
The whole video the man had a smile until he bumped to a cop and he lost his big smile and it started to fade away. But he made more expressions then just smile, he made a oops face when the police bumped to him.
Moving and space:
The whole video he was moving, He moved around dancing while it was raining. He even tap danced so he used allot of space which means he made it look like he’s really out side dancing and singing on the rain.
I thought that Gene Kelly is a great dancer and singer because he did well on movement and he also did well on Expression, He made allot of Rhythm which is good so I give Gene Kelly a 8/10.
