Vanessa Raqs - Oriental Entrance Piece w/ Veil

  • Green Belt - Holiday Inn (Midtown) 6000 Middle Fiskville Road Austin, TX, 78752 United States (map)

The entrances we make are the most important thing we can do when making a great first impression -- and keeping the audience with you every second of the journey! Students will be guided through recognizing musical cues as well as utilizing a variety of vocabulary to interpret the different segments of the song. We will listen to the music and learn how to identify phrases, repeats, accents, changes, and variations of phrases, as well as knowing when to move and when to stay in place. As the choreography is set, the dancers will understand WHY the elements are placed where they are. If there are places for improvisation, the class will be guided to choose the elements which are most appropriate for the musical representation. A veil will be used at the beginning of piece. Please bring a veil.

Skill level: Intermediate-Professional
