Dance Appreciation 1
The group meets on the second Thursday at 10am and 2pm every month.
In Dance Appreciation we look at a wide variety of styles and genres from Romantic ballet through to works from this century. Recently we looked at some folk/ Morris dance and had a fellow member give us information about its history. We have looked at dance in musical films as well as ballets and contemporary dances created especially for the film medium. Also featured have been dance from South-East Asia, documentaries about dancers, choreographers and dance companies and many, many styles of contemporary dance.
From time to time we engage in discussion about meaning, dance movement, choreography and choreographers, lighting set design, costume. We are all still learning.
