In PE class, we had a unit about dance. At the beggining, we started learning how to dance gangnam style from just dance 4. After ward, we looked at an dancing scene in a movie called Beetle Juice. This influenced everyone to choose a song, then make a creative dancing with a group. Then, we chose to do second half of Gangnam style creativly with a partner. My dance group was with Anna, Mihaela, Arunansu, Kate, Maya, Spencer, and Jack. The partner for Gangnam style is Mihaela.
Dinner dance song has to be something classic so we chose to do the famous (drum)…. MACARENA! Then, Kate said that she has a song she love. It is Black eye pea I got a feeling. Then, we had an idea that we should jam them. After ward, we chose that our theme should be about muppet that is controlled by some one. We chose Spencer and Jack should be the one who control rest of us. In the dance, I created the part when you have to slide out and twirl around. I think I didn’t really contribute in the creativity moves. For me, I think my dance only contributed 5% out of whole dance. Next ime, I should really pay attention and be cooperative with my group. Also, if I had an idea, I shouldn’t have hide it. I actually regret that I kept it secret so if I get to do again, I will try not to be shy and tell some ideas. The team really worked creatively and had lots of fun. I think we really had organization but the problem is that me, Mihaela, and anna sometimes talk at the rest time and sometimes when Kate, Maya and Arunansu are talking about new step, we didn’t participate. I think we should had been much more better team mate. Also, when they asked for ideas we just stand there just listening and not giving ideas. Also, no offense but sometimes, maya and kate kind of went to other group and goofed around. Having fun is ok but I think we had too much goofing around. Next time, I think we should tell each other to pay attention. But overall, I think every one did really good job!! NICE JOB EVERY ONE WHOHOOO!!!
Gangnam style dance was really fun. Me and mihaela participated and practiced lot. The beginning of the dance is combination from just dance 4 and then I had an idea of using ball so we did it. Then mihaela thought of doing slide out and do macarena. Suddenly, we had an idea of using our game that we always do to a dancing movement. It is when we try to get a ball but there is only one ball so we fight. After ward, we did the same thing as the just dance 4. I think we really participated really because we even had sleep over just to work on it. We also practiced at pe time, and talked about it in Skype. But I think we have to concentrate because, during the weird movement, we felt uncomfortable and also, we giggled while we were dancing. If we have another chance to do it, I want to do kind of serious Not deadly serious but not like too giggly. But over all I think we did good job! NICE JOB! LET’S CELEBRATE!!
We have to answer an question said What makes a good performance?, What were your top 3 qualities if you had to rank them in order of value?, How did you address these in your dances?
There is an mind map that has all the idea for dances.
I think what make good performance is Flow, Energy, and it isn’t in the list but having fun. Even though you have energy and flow, if you are not having fun, the audience will not have fun because of your body action, face, and the mood. So if you are having fun, audience will have fun too. That’s why I think having fun is important than anything else. In the dance, we had lots of fun during performing and practising. And when we did horse back dance, we try to put lots of energy jumping. I think it wasn’t too flow but it was actually flow and I am proud of it. YAY! So this is my dances. Thank you for reading
