This year marks the fifth annual Spring into Dance show. The show was full of energetic dance numbers along with some very moving and emotional ones. One energetic piece that stands out to me was the piece choreographed by Alex Johnson to the music of “24K Magic.” The audience could tell how much fun the dancers had while putting together this upbeat piece of dancing. One of the slower, more emotional pieces that stood out to me was “My Beth.” It used the story from “Little Women” to create a piece that showed the feelings of losing a loved one.
Dancing is one of many ways to express the way a person is feeling. One of the choreographers mentioned that there were feelings he could not express with words, but through dance he could. This is a great example of how people use the fine arts to interpret the world around them and to communicate what they feel to the world.
I thoroughly enjoyed Spring into Dance. It was great to see all of the hard-work that my friends have put in during this second semester pay off. I cannot wait to see how Spring into Dance advances in the upcoming years and what the dancers will accomplish.
