Week of December 12-15, 2017 UPDATED SCHEDULE

Dancers – well, due to losing time from the half day on Friday as well as Monday 12/11/17, I have decided to push the Vaudeville Group Projects until January. I only have Silver group for one day this week and there will also be more conflicts with EOC testing due to them having to reschedule, and I want everyone to participate. So whatever work you have done, hang on to it until next semester! We will get in to these right at the top of the semester and also use them as a way to study different musical artists of the time period.

Weekly Schedule – Please bring dance clothes every day!

Silver Group – Exam Review, Units 1, 2 and 3/Jazz Technique

Wednesday – 12/13/17 –

We will still have the final review on Monday 12/18 where Ms. Denise and I split time with all classes for any last minute questions/concerns.

Vaudeville Group Projects – UPDATED

These projects have been moved to January 2018, so keep this assignment in mind over the Holiday break and continue to work on your “act”.

You will be assigned to groups and tasked with creating a mini Vaudeville show in which at least four of the styles of dance discussed in your Vaudeville packet are represented. In addition, there will be a time requirement based on the number of people in your group, more people equals a longer time requirement since there are more acts in the show.

Remember that Vaudeville was a VARIETY show, so these can be individual acts strung together, or you can work on some partnering group ideas as well. The main thing is that you come prepared with ideas/choreography the day your class is assigned to start working! Bring whatever shoes etc. you might need, I will supply some props from costume closet, but no costumes. You are welcome to do that on your own if you choose to.

You will have one full day to work in your groups and assemble your show, here are some things to consider – what are the order of the acts, are there any involving multiple people that you must rehearse together, what music are you using?( I will have selections for you to choose from, but if you want to bring some it must be from the time period, no later than 1920’s). Make sure you are efficient with your time together in class, everyone can practice their own individual acts outside of class.


Week of December 11-15, 2017

Well dancers, it’s our last full week of the semester! Last week ended crazy with the early dismissal and postponement of the Vocal Concert, so I know everyone is readjusting but we do need to remain focused for the last week and half before winter break so that everyone can finish the semester strong and do well on the final.

FINAL EXAM REVIEW – As I have mentioned all week, you need to be focusing on reviewing Units 1 and 2 on your own time outside of class, we will be focusing on Unit 3 in class with some warmup questions on Units 1 and 2 and review the last couple of days before finals. But if you haven’t reviewed on your own by then, this will not help you.
