In drama class, we have been making different and creative dances.
I teamed up with Arunansu, Johan and Yudai. Three of my really good friends.
We were assigned to make a dance, and we were allowed to make any dance with any theme.
Our group decided to make one that is related to Medieval theme. We used ribbons as wands and we wanted to make a rhythmic dance.
Couple of weeks ago, we presented our Medieval dance. It was not our finished one, but all our ideas into a small one. We got lots of positive comments and very few negative ones. Our dance had rhythm, patterns and we were well organised. However, our dance was too short, and that was one of our negative comments.
We used the feedback given by our class and the teacher, and we changed and added parts we never thought of. For example, we added a more scary and “On-guard” introduction instead of starting the dance by a big “Woosh” created by the group. We used the idea given by the teacher to make a more Medieval feeling by adding more expressions at the beginning.
We also added a “Switching wand” scene. We did this by throwing our wands in the air and then catching your opponents wand. Then we would do it again to get our original wand back. Not only that, our original fighting scene was short and did not have a variety of moves. Instead, we added more moves and made it longer by fighting your opponent longer.
At the end, we agreed to do a final and big attack by spinning the ribbons then attacking each other. After we did that, we would throw our wands straight into the air, and then act dead.
I think we did a very good job, and I thought our dance was creative. However, I would of liked to make it longer.
