I am so sad to be missing a rehearsal with you! Please be on your best behavior for the substitute and take the initiative in running your own rehearsal. Concert is coming up faster than you think!
Below are the links to the music for Megan's Piece (closer button) and Opener (Spotify link), so you can practice. You can link up to sound system by Bluetoothing to Logitech BT Adapter.
TO DO LIST:
- Warm up. Be sure to warm up together really well!
- Clean & Run Megan's Piece (Closer): Make sure that you're on time with the music cues and that everyone is dancing their fullest. Review and clean any parts that seem messy.
- Run Opener: This is the piece is the Opening piece for the concert. It is inspired by the idea that art can bring Joy and "Life" into our lives.
Break into your groups and review and clean your movement. Especially my retrograde groups!
Please run through all of the movement that we strung together on Monday. Catch up anybody that was absent.
-Create more Movement: In this piece we begin with duets, then break into larger groups. I would like you to come up with unison movement that the whole group dance together.
Instructions for Creating Movement: Each individual needs to come up with one move. Each persons move must be inspired by one of the following words: Joyously, Swirling, Zealously, Stretch, Rapidly, Enlarge.
After each person has a move, beginning stringing them together. Begin by one person teaching their move to everyone. Then have the next dancer step forward and string their move onto the first persons move. Continue until everyone has stepped forward and taught their move. By the end, you should have a movement phrase made up of 23 moves.
I will see the phrase and put it into the dance when I come back on Friday!
