The Games Dancers Play

February 8, 2012

Arts, Breaking News, Dance

Dance majors at Langley Fine Arts School put on a show depicting the games we all used to play with our friends, and still do.  The pieces were choreographed by the dance teachers Mrs. Wolski, and Mrs. Ibbott.

The dancers interpreted the excitement of the competition and the thrill of the game through movement.

The first dance was the grade eleven and twelve’s who became chess pieces. This piece was filled with building tension, but also the calming silence that the game of chess incorporates.

Most of the pieces used an abundance of props to help the dancers fully embody the factors of each game. In Twister, colored circles lay in their traditional formation as the dancers twisted and fought to be the last one standing.

The dancers’ expression made the audience believe we were experiencing a playful game.

The show ended with a hilarious piece about the board game Clue. The grads dressed as the characters and became the eccentric personalities that we all know and love.

Each dance was cleanly choreographed and matched the theme well. Great job dance majors!
