Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Street Dance Evaluation In this evaluation I am going to talk about the process to the performance and my strengths, weaknesses and targets that I have made through the process to the performance. I will talk about how I overcome minor and major problems throughout my process. I will talk about how I developed my performance skills for this Unit, and in doing this unit how it has helped me gain experience and confidence. Also in this evaluation I am going to be talking bout the different movements, techniques and the devices that have been used in the choreography of the street dance performance that took place on Friday 14th March 2008. I will talk about how this performance went and what skills I used in the performance and how they helped me to create a better overall performance. I will talk about the ups and the downs of the process of the performance the differences that there was between our team gathering. I will also talk about the targets that I accomplish, I will talk about the targets in team work and we overcome problems. From these targets I will improve on possible outcomes and different styles of using performance skills.

I will have to make this a target and accomplish this before my next dance performance for my improvement to work. Coordination From my performance I think my coordination was really good I think I was very consistent is this performance I believe this a strength, however in the last 24 counts I lost this because I came out of the rhythm to the music (loss of musicality) which was a downfall to the ending of the performance. I think my coordination was very good in fact possible that good I would say it was the second best thing in my performance. I think my coordination has a big strength in me performance for example the box section of the dance that I had to perform along side jade the timing and energy was there in order for my to be able to complete this section successfully my coordination was good at that point. However to be a strength there has to be a weakness my weakness for my coordination was when we were about to perform our solos my coordination with musicality we tended to all have a problem with this however in the performance I didn't perform to the best of my ability for this I was clapping our of timing but I personally felt within the beat rather I was not going with the beat or other dancers. ...read more.

Conclusion

I need to start taking types of gym classes where I can make sections of my body more flexible as this would help. With being also male I am unable to do a lot of movements which females are able to take on board and perform. I will make this a target for the future. Interpretative Skills Projection I think in my performance the projection of the performance from me was really good compared to what I thought I would be doing. I have noticed strength and projection also is a consistent skill which unfortunately in this performance I didn't have this throughout. I have also found that when doing this that if its not consistent its not really a strength however the reason I have put this as a strength is because I believe I projected my character to the audience and was able to choreograph my movements and my attitude to the audience in result projecting my character and not the movements. I have also found a weakness in my performance for projection is that I didn't project my movements I only projected my facial expressions and my attitude. This is going to be a target for the future I must be able to have attitude and to have projection of my performance. ?? ?? ?? ?? Daniel Smales Street Dance Logbook ...read more.
