First of all I would like to give a definition of what a dance and poetry is Dancing is the art of moving the body in time to the music Dancing is both an art and communication Poetry is the art theory or structure of poems Poem is a rhythmical composition expressing experiences ideas or emotions imaginative and powerful I think the dancers the choreographers and everybody that was involved with creating and directing the dance performance did an awesome job putting dance poetry and music together Eventhough it was only a rehearsal I had a very strong and overwhelming feeling when I was watching the dancers dance This event is a modern dance which includes the forms of dance created in reaction to classical ballet It was almost like they were dancing ballet without the ballet shoes and costumes that the ballerinas wore The dance was so natural and expressive it complemented the music and the poetry very well When I was watching the dancers I felt like I was watching the swaying of trees and the ocean The steps they used included hopping swaying skipping and running From what I saw most of the dancers dance barefoot and wear tunics almost similar to those of Greek style it showed the beauty of the dancers body The dances was mimetic which came from the Greek word imitation Mimetic dance imitates the gestures and actions of real life Bishop 23 The dance music and the poems brought the body mind and spirit together it explored the threads that land us as people to seek humanity and embrace common ground in which we live It looked like any part of the body can be used and the music costumes design lighting and the movements all have their own identity The music had perfect tone pitch color dynamics rhythm and melody that went well with the dance The music was brought to life by the dancers
