Week 3 Sept 12- Sept 16 World Dance Examples Monday, Sept 12- World Dance Packet 1 Questions ★ Capoeira, Tinikling, Belly Dancing ★ All traditional styles of dance ○ On a stage they are trying to give you a sense of the cultural side of the dance even if it is staged as a performance ★ Dances of resistance ○ Belly Dancing ■ Started out only being danced by women for women ■ Seen as lude and inappropriate ■ Not considered politically correct to perform for money ● Can be considered a form of prostitution even if there is no exchange of sexual acts ■ Belly dancing outlawed because it was considered inappropriate and wrong ○ Capoeira ■ Outlawed because it was thought to be linked to gangs and illegal activity ■ Originally just danced by men ○ Tinikling ■ Originally danced in couples (male and female) ■ Name of the dance is named after a word ■ The dance itself is not a form of punishment ● There was a punishment where slaves would be forced to stand between uncut bamboo so if they were to move they would be cut. The fact that the dancers hop between the bamboo sticks show “you cannot hold me”. This is a “performance” by the culture for their community. ○ Beyonce’s formation performance at the superbowl ■ Her music video came out the night before, gave context to her statement, added to her point ■ Very politically charged World Dance Packet 2 ★ Polonaise ○ Poland 1600’s ○ Social Dance ○ Feet and arms moving ○ Float, glide ○ Light, quick AND sustained, direct AND a little indirect ○ Example of gender roles and status in the society ○ Prosessional- going somewhere Folk- sometimes this word is used to describe the lower class dances (misconceptions) ★ Salsa ○ Traditional cuban dances added to salsa ○ Salsa competition is a concert dance ○ Real salsa is getting to know your partner (you're not performing for them, you're having a conversation through movement) ○ Movement of hips, legs, knees, feet, lots of range of motion ○ The pase of the dance was matched to the music Wednesday, Sept 14- This Unit we will NOT be tested on the videos. World Dance Packet 2 Questions ★ Yangge is still practiced today as a community form ○ Originated in 10th century ○ People of all status dance this ○ Sometimes includes props ○ Not for an audience and you can do it at any skill level ○ Social dance so it evolves over time ○ Ex. Dancing grandmas of China. High value of being physically active. Older adults go out into public and practice dancing with loud music. They created an ordinance to shut it down because it was to loud and it wasn't traditional music (lady Gaga) ★ Salsa ○ Clave is the rhythm of the music. The correct translation is “the key” into the dance ○ Combination of european and african based aesthetics ■ Weight in african based aesthetics ■ Lightness and holding the waist steady and upright from european based aesthetics ○ Salsa is danced in partners ■ Men lead, ladies follow ■ Salsa usually is not choreographed ★ Polonaise ○ The wealthy took the dance and made it “better” World Dance Packet 3 ★ Miori ○ Miori rugby and soccer teams use this ○ Originally used to intimidate before a battle ○ Also used to send a message Friday, Sept 16- Group 2 has lab
