Fall… Down, Please?

Published by Rhianna Mohamed under Uncategorized

Cheap tickets and ballet shoes: two things I was never a fan of (that’s a joke, guys). Ballet is pretty intimidating though, probably because I can’t walk in ballet shoes, nevermind dance in them. The Fall for Dance began with a ballet number and was soon followed by some African-jazz dancing. The animals, as I correctly perceived them to be, danced so “animal-like” that it was easily noticeable that they were in the jungle. The costumes didn’t help one bit, it was the way the dancers interacted with one another, the way they interacted on one another. Too bad I couldn’t get up and jump and down like them; instead, I had to sit down and watch the rest of the performances. The rest of the performance was a fail for me. It really needed a translator on stage telling the audience what they wanted us to believe, was going on. fall

    Ballet is crazy when you think about just how much they’re doing on their toes. I appreciated their talent, just not the longevity or my having to stay and watch :D.

    When you say you cant dance in ballet shoes, I think you should have said “I can’t dance, period”.
    Anyway, I thought that those that just went to see a performance for fun where even more confused because at least we tried to make some sense of everything during class discussions.

    Your joke was a little too offensive, my friend.
    I don’t know how I should react since I am one of the biggest fans of cheap tickets AND ballet shoes!

    I agree. I was lost for most of the show.

    I liked the second one the most, probably because I could understand that one.

    So true…….I was so confused during the entire performance. I kept on asking my classmates around me if they understood the meaning behind the performances, and got a negative answer each time.
