Thank you Travis for sending me three videos to look at! I would love to know your responses to my ideas. The other two will be talked about soon.
I remember looking at this video the first time Travis sent it to me. Looking at videos multiple times in different frames of mind is a good idea, and for me this time it was good to see how unwavering my feelings were for this one. I like that the choreographer tackled such a fast song. And the tempo is kind of challenging. Also, this video is of a class, and that presents a challenge to the dancers learning it. It’s hard as a viewer to watch choreography that’s completely lighting speed from beginning to end. This is completely lighting speed, but I do think it’s fast to the point that it was hard for me to keep up. Which can be a good thing if all of the dancers can keep up. For this,people could keep up, but I don’t think there was enough time for everyone to completely OWN it.
That being said, I still love the choreo. I wish there were more transitions and slight pauses, to give the dancers a chance to add focus. Focus would enhance the look and feel (at least, from where I sit) of the piece immensely.
What do you think?
