I need help with this assignment. There are four links for different dances down below to be used for the following questions. Each question needs a total of 250 words with an introduction paragraph, body paragraph, and conclusion for each. I have attached to instructions below.
Select ONE dance and thoroughly DESCRIBE the dance in terms of the Elements of Dance. Make sure to include information on the choreographer’s use of body, action, space, time and energy. How do the dancers use space? Shape? What is the rhythm, use of time, dynamics of the movement? What were the groupings of dancers? Was there any partnering? Did you notice an interrelationship among the movements such as repetition and variation of the movement theme and the relationship between the dance and the dancers. Also, describe the costumes, lighting, and music, and stage atmosphere of this dance. Lastly, why is it important to know how to describe a dance? Make sure to include the title of the dance and the name of the choreographer when describing the work.
Select ONE dance (different from the first one) and INTERPRET the dance. What is the main idea or theme of this dance? How do you know? Interpretation means forming a plausible hypothesis about the meaning of a dance and then backing it up with evidence (movement description). You can examine the meaning of a dance in various ways. For example, if a dance is abstract, you can base your interpretation on the various elements found within the dance (how is the movement used to convey the subject matter, or what about the geometric design, partnering, contrasts, etc.). Next you can interpret the relationship between metaphor and movement. Or, perhaps the dance has a clear narrative, and if it does, describe it. You may feel that the choreographer is trying to convey something that you just don’t get. That is okay. What is it in the dance that makes you feel this way? How does the dance relate to the audience? Is the energy projected out, or does it draw the spectator in? Make sure to include the title of the dance and the name of the choreographer when describing the work.
Select ONE dance (different from the first one) and ANALYZE the dance. What is the genre or style of the dance? Ballet, modern, jazz, tap, musical theatre, world dance, social dance, dance for the camera? How does the genre contribute to your overall understanding of the dance? How do you contextualize the dance based on style? What historical, cultural, and/or social elements contribute to your analysis? Make sure to include the title of the dance and the name of the choreographer when describing the work.
Select ONE dance (different from the first one) and EVALUATE the dance. What do you think the choreographer’s intent was in creating the piece, and how well did the choreographer fulfill the intent? What was your overall reaction to the dance? Why do you think you had this reaction? Was this dance successful? What aspects of the dance made it successful (or unsuccessful)? Use your Elements of Dance vocabulary, understanding of style, and understanding of production elements in this evaluation. Also, be aware of your own personal biases and assumptions. Be specific (and use movement description as evidence) when you articulate your likes and dislikes. How can you evaluate the dance within its own context? Make sure to include the title of the dance and the name of the choreographer when describing the work

I was assigned to attend a dance event, the event had multiple dances, I chose 4 dances, I recorded and uploaded them on YouTube so you can watch them and answer the questions. Each question has to have one different dance.

Paper is on this video

Write a 650-800 word paper on the UNLV Dance Concert #1. Write a paragraph on each piece presented by name and choreographer. Reflect on the strength of the theme, lighting, costumes, and movement. What insights did you gain from this dance concert? What particular observations about the elements of dance helped you to enjoy this concert? Be specific. Review the dynamics and subtleties of the piece. Identify what was intriguing about the piece. What did I learn today that helped me grow or appreciate how others think? Give insight into your opinion by using comparison or personal experience as you relate to the content of the dance. You may also analyze the dance as pure dance and motion reflecting on the emotional or kinesthetic sensations produced. What was the name of the concert that you attended? Name one dance selection you enjoyed the most. Who choreographed the dance selection you enjoyed most? What changes would you have made to one of the dances to make it more effective? You can include music, costumes, lighting, etc. If you enjoyed the entire concert equally, explain why. If you didn’t like the concert explain why, and how you think it could be improved.

Kyle Abraham and A.I.M (Abraham in Motion)

Kyle Abraham and A.I.M (Abraham in Motion)
A. Learn about Kyle:
https://www.britannica.com/biography/Kyle-Abraham (Links to an external site.).
B. Watch videos 1-3 and read the article about “Untitled Love” and answer the questions at the bottom of the assignment. 15pts
1. The Radio Show
https://vimeo.com/10347636 (Links to an external site.)
The Radio Show creates an abstract narrative around the loss of communication, investigating the effects of the abrupt discontinuation of a radio station on a community and the lingering effects of Alzheimer’s and aphasia on a family.
Broken up into various shorter works that blend my fondest memories of driving with my family and listening to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s radio station Hot 106.7FM WAMO and its sister station AM 860. On September 8, 2009, WAMO, the only urban radio station in Pittsburgh sadly, went off-air.
With the recent turmoil surrounding the death of 16 year old Derrion Albert in Chicago discussed over the airwaves of radio stations around the world, I wondered how aware listeners were to the goings on in other urban communities around the country now that its voice had been taken away.
Without Black Radio, where is the audible voice of the black community? Radio was so prevalent during times of strife in the past. Where is its place today? Is radio fading away? Are we still listening?
Reinterpreting those questions into the context of my father’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s ten years ago and his more recent aphasia-afflicted conditions where these losses of voice find a common thread.
2. “Absent Matter”
https://vimeo.com/199036133 (Links to an external site.)
“ABSENT MATTER (2015), explores the perceived posthumous grandeur of death and violence in urban communities throughout the US through sound and movement, tracing the racial epithets in songs of Grief, Love, and Death by artists ranging from Notorious B.I.G and Tupac to contemporary rap artists like Kendrick Lamar and Drake. The work explores hip-hop’s lineage to create an abstracted dialogue about race in America through the lens of those who feel unacknowledged or without value.”
3. A.I.M/Kyle Abraham “Meditation: A Silent Prayer”
https://vimeo.com/421092897 (Links to an external site.)
4. Read this article about Kyle’s most recent piece, “An Untitled Love”
https://www.nytimes.com/2022/02/24/arts/dance/review-kyle-abraham-an-untitled-love.html (Links to an external site.)
PDF of article: Download KyleAbraham_untitledlove.pdf Questions To answer AFTER you watch and read): What are your emotional responses to the videos, either by themselves or as a collection? Which stood out to you the most? Why?
After reading about Kyle, and the blurbs about the work, how do his personal experiences show up in his dances? How does the work Kyle make with his company A.I.M reflect current issues in America?
How is his choreography (not just style- but ALSO subject matter) different and/or similar to other choreographers we have learned about?
Make sure you read the article and mention “Untitled Love”, Kyle’s most recent work with A.I.M. This piece was just performed through UCSD’s ArtPower in February.

You could mention others but those 4 must be discussed To give a hint on what the lecturer wants; she said she needs to see the historical context behind the rise or these dancing styles. For example the racial context behind Jazz

Learning Goal: I’m working on a dance writing question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.Performance Analysis GuidelinesFormat and Deadline 10 points
2 pages, double-spaced, Times New Roman
Link video: https://mediasite.sdsu.edu/mediasite/Play/f34339be…Structure
The paper should have 4 structures. (1) Introduction (2) Description (3) Analysis (4) Conclusion1. Introduction: Give us a background of the performance, the artist, and the context. Any social or historical context your reader needs to know. Establish how that particular aspect of your research and analysis link to the given research questions.1) Artist/Performer(s): Who is performing?2) Context: What is the dance company and who is the choreographer? Do some research on it.3) The Audience: Who is watching? Describe your own positionality, experience, and perspective informed by the class topics. How is your experience, background, or social and cultural position impact and influence your understanding of the performance? You can extend this to the analysis. 2. Description: What do you see or hear or feel? Describe performers’ bodies, movements, costumes, their use of space, time, sound, and relationship to the audience, as well as the narrative and/or lyrics of the show. Physical, verbal, visual, and sonic signs are your evidence.You can consider those elements:
Narrative, character, role play
Spoken or written texts
The body and movement
Gender, race, age, sexuality, the body type of performers
Speed, level, and space of moves
Relations with other performers and the audience
General feelings, e.g. facial expressions
Sonic and other visual elements
Music, sound, prop, lighting, costume, etc.
NOTE: If you perform in it as a dance major (good for you!), please focus on in the description what you felt and experienced, instead of what you observed. Additional insight is welcome. 3. Analysis: Choose at least one particular film/scene. What are some of the main themes the artist tries to say? How do they relate to current cultural issues in society? Cite at least one idea or key term covered in class from readings, lectures, and viewings.Tips:1. Postmodern dance and contemporary dance topics would be relevant to the show.2. If available, post-performance discussion and Q&A is the best place to ask questions to the choreographer and dancers for your paper. When you ask a question, start with a brief expression of gratitude. It is considered an étiquette in theatre. Here is a template that helps you start a conversation with artists. “I am XYZ from Dr. Oh’s DANCE 281. Thank you for sharing your wonderful work. I am very impresssed by XYZ… Can you elaborate more about XYZ? (such as personal or artistic meanings of the show, making process, challenges as an artist, usage of props, costumes, music, etc., or any questions you might have watching the show).4. Conclusion: What do we learn from your analysis? Why do you think the piece is important? What does the piece mean in a larger context of gender, race, and sexuality, and performance of identity? Bring your position and experience as an audience and weave them into the analysis. Conclude with a broader implication vis-a-vis functions, values, and beauty of dance performance.Check List Does the paper provide a clear, well-developed (1) Introduction (2) Description (3) Analysis and (4) Conclusion? Does each section meet the criteria and requirements?
Does it fully analyze the performance in-depth and support the arguments with at least one source (key term) from the lectures or the readings? Does it include a list of references at the end?
Does the format match: 2 pages, double-spaced, Times New Romans? Have you done proofreading so that it meets the expectation for a 300 level class?
