What is dance in sl madness, matter, and rambling thoughts gas 93 octane

##########

This workshop changes because interaction is highly encouraged, almost expected, and each time is different because of it. I think too, sometimes our minds are in tune with different ideas, open. One of the most amazing things I find about teaching is that I too am a student. I learn by the questions people ask, their unspoken communications. Comments, opinions. I am always in a state of self evaluation and growth.

What’s below are excerpts of the tutor notes for this workshop, which I provide to anyone attending. During the workshop, I realized that some of my beliefs are still limiting. I am extremely choreography focused. To me, choreography is the most important piece of the dance. gas prices going up to 5 dollars You can’t have a dance without choreography, right? To me, this is still true, that focusing on the “wow” of sets, costumes, effects, and not investing time into creating good choreography can really effect the impact of the dance. Make it less than it could have been. Have I done this? Lost focus on my choreography…definitely. Did people see that in my finished results? …most definitely.

In this workshop, I focused on the keys for building a strong foundation – and I stand by those. It is when you have the knowledge that YOU decide how to apply it. r gasquet This is YOUR dance. There are no rules. Don’t use particles to mask weak choreography. Focus on building your choreography skills, then use particles to make your dance whatever you want it to be. If you DECIDE you need many particles during your dance to express your message, do it. The same basic considerations will apply, your satisfaction with your dance, and also the audience experience. You are creating for yourself, but the audience has also taken their time to come and watch. Some will get it, some won’t, and that’s ok too.

Throwing a heap full of trees on your set – probably not a conscious decision. Building a forest on your set to highlight the dancers – that’s a conscious decision. gas after eating dairy Doing things just because you can, not so much of a conscious decision. Doing this because they enhance the performance, fit into your goal and your happiness in self expression, THAT is a conscious decision. Adding particles just because someone told you to, not a conscious decision. Adding particles because YOU see how they will enhance the dance? Conscious decision. There are no rules, no formulas.

The same with dance in SL. What is it? There’s no one authority that can truly describe what dance is and isn’t in SL, there are all these flavors in between and most likely a venue for that type of dance creation. There is art, imagination, creativity, practice, innovation – all brought together to create a dance in your own voice. Each venue has its own style, own niche, own expectations for dances performed there which there should be. This does not define or limit your dance, merely where you perform it.

Some venues prefer a more traditional/broadway/theatre style production. This is one style of so many. Find your own, what works for you. Never forget – this is your creative outlet. electricity drinking game Don’t let anyone dissuade you, discourage you. Create from that spark within you. To me, it is the act of bringing my vision to life that is the most amazing feeling of all. As Polonius says: “To thine own self be true…”

The creator may use many different tools to explore and to create in their own way. Some love building sets, or putting together choreography. Maybe they use audacity to create custom music files, or put together unique costumes. Others enjoy working with Photoshop to create textures and pictures for their sets. Others like the challenge of scripting and creating special effects. Opportunities for growth and vision are almost endless.

Small Performances – generally a solo, may be performed on a small stage, pit stage, or platform. In most “small performances”, the focus is you, your choreography, and the music. Generally few if any moves using a mover system. These can be a lot of fun, less overwhelming than a big full stage production, and can provide a very “intimate” and close experience for you and the audience. Think of this like a jazz singer performing in a jazz club compared to a full arena concert. Generally one song with a variety of performances by different choreographers. There is generally not a director overseeing and managing creative choices and development. Examples: TerpsiCorps Pit Shows, Inanna, potentially Club Image except for themed productions.

Full Stage Performance – for this I mean a full stage set, generally at a larger venue. May be a solo dance or have many dancers. electricity and magnetism study guide 5th grade A full stage performance is generally one song, on a large stage, with a variety of performances by different choreographers. There is generally not a director overseeing and managing creative choices and development. Examples: Phoenix, Moonshadow, Elysium Cabaret.

Full Show Productions – a full show production is generally a themed or cohesive show that is planned and structured to express a story and/or a full experience. There will generally be some type of continuity to tie everything together – the set design, the story, the style. There is generally a director involved who will oversee all aspects of the production and the creation of it. Examples: Monarchs, TerpsiCorps, Spirit Light Dance Company, and Club Image Productions such as Tarot.
