Answer the following questions in a separate document. Be thoughtful but succinct in your responses. Focus
on specifically and vividly describing the performance, accessing and building upon the movement vocabulary
you already possess. Spelling and grammar will count in the determination of your grade. You must cite any
outside sources including program notes, class readings, or outside research.
If this were an essay assignment:
Keep in mind that everything single thing cited here doesn’t necessarily have to be included in your piece. Be
mindful of the information’s relevancy in relation to what you’re describing. If it’s important to mention a

1. What was the name of the dance company performing? Who was the choreographer?
The choreographer was Laura Katz Rizzo. The name of the dance company performing was The Boyer
School of Music and Dance.
2. When and where did the show take place?
The show took place on February 1, 2019, in 1776 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA.
3. What was the title of the show? If the show included more than one piece, what was the title of the
piece about which you will be writing?
The title of the show was the Faculty dance concert. The title of the piece about which I will be writing
is Takalo Vs. 9 Lives.
4. What was the style or genre of the choreography? (ballet, modern, hip hop, jazz, etc.?) Support your
claim with evidence from the work and your existing knowledge of any dance forms.
The genre of the choreography was ballet. Ballet dance is usually performed with particular body
movements and positions, (Herweck, 2011). For one thing, the whole performance adhered to the three golden
rules of ballet. Dancers turned everything out; their feet were always pointed if they were not on the floor, and
their legs were stretched entirely out when they were not bent. I can confidently say that the whole performance
was a combination of graceful movements, costume, lighting, costume design, solemn music, choreography and
art which all make up a ballet dance. The ballet dancers also had strength, flexibility, and balance.
5. Situate the choreographer’s work in terms of historical and cultural influences. You may refer to the
program notes and use outside sources to research the dance company or choreographer.
The choreographer’s work is of Russian ballet style. His work is characterized by classical ballet
techniques and vocabularies. The three essential characteristics of Russian culture: realism, theatrics, and
echelons. These elements distinguish this ballet’s art form from its counterparts in other lands. With a quality
larger than life, this Russian ballet represented the complexities of the Russian culture – the gentle beauty of the
countryside and the grand expression of the aristocracy.
6. Describe: You may choose to focus on one or two sections of the dance work in responding to each of
the following questions.

How many dancers were on stage-was it a solo, duet, trio, or ensemble?
There were two dancers on stage. It was, therefore, a duet.

Describe the movement using evocative and vivid language. How did the dancers use their bodies? What
did the movement look like and how was it performed? Address elements covered in class including
body, shape, and effort qualities.
The ballerinas moved gracefully and flexible with their feet in several positions. In some
scene, they had their feet part, front and behind. The feet were either open-no overlap or closedfully overlapping for the most part of the performance. The ballerinas also tuned their heads
towards the left when dancing to the classical tune at some point. They also had their feet
together, front and behind in some scene, fully overlapping. The most beautiful and striking part
of their dance is when they also had their feet en pointe. For the most part of the performance,
their arms were held to the side, while curving slightly forward. Their body shape was angular
especially with their arms held to the side or with each ballerina holding the other ballerina.
Their effort qualities were mostly smooth. They performed the ballet dance movements with an
ease that it was evident that they were quite flexible.

Describe the use of space in a particular section or throughout the performance.
The dancers moved their space in a specific time by changing levels slowly then kicked
their legs out quickly. They have kept a linear form of space. In most parts of the dance, the
dancers used their space by quickly changing levels thus springing into the air. In other scenes,
the dancers kicked out their legs up with high energy.

Describe the music or sound. How did it relate to the movement or overall them?
The classical music used for the ballet supported the wrestling theme of the dance. Well,
ballet is typically choreographed in phrases of 8 beats. The piano played light and happy
classical music. The ballerinas move to the sound of the music such that their movements are
based on the tone or the pitch of the classical music. For instance, we can see the ballerinas
edging their heads to their left using the music.

Describe the lighting, costumes, set and props. How did these design elements relate to the movement or
overall theme?
The costume and set design were tailored to the ballet’s atmosphere and theme instead of
swamping the choreography with their elegant opulence. The development of pointe work,
(where the dancers danced on their toes) meant that the dancers would appear ethereal and
pointless without any artificial aids. In place of profoundly beautiful classical or mythological
scenes, there were poetic evocations of the landscape, and the ballerinas were dressed in simple
white dresses.

How was the piece structured? How did it progress from beginning to end?
The piece did not follow strict chronology like some of the 20th-century works. It has
instead used cinematic devices, for instance, the flashback as the opening of the ballet dance. To
open their work, the ballerinas began onstage and entered from the back of the stage. The
choreographer then developed her material, thus bridging the closing and the opening sections.
The wrestling movement themes, mood, plot, and characters were embellished and explored. In
the end, the plot built to a climax or a high point and culminated into a satisfying conclusion
where dramatic tensions were resolved. To the end, the ballerinas remained onstage.
7. Interpret: What was the chorographer’s intention? What meaning did you see in the movement?
What was the overall theme of the work? Provide specific examples to support your interpretation of the
work.
Dance is, of course, meant to show joy. The overall theme of the work was that of
wrestling. The choreographer intended to show the relationship between dancing an athletic
disciplined such as wrestling in this case. She wants us to feel the beauty of life by integrating
the so-called “rough” wrestling to dancing movements. From the movement, I see the
interconnectedness between vulnerability, strength, monstrosity, beauty, violence, and love.
8. Make Connections: Relate your understanding of the performance to at least one of our class
readings. You may also reference class discussions or include additional outside research.
As per our class readings, movements, sounds or music determine ballet movements.
Indeed, ballet is always choreographed in phrases of 8 beats, with the 1-2-3 count of a waltz.
This was precisely what was happening in the ballet dance. The ballerinas danced to the rhythms
of classical music while integrating a fighting style to their movements.
