Dance as A Performing Art

During the Middle Ages those who were not well versed in dancing, regardless of whether a traditional or classical form, was said to have not been born under dancing stars. Just the fact that people associated the ability to dance with a star just shows how important dancing was as a part of society. Dancing was also important for the traditions, cultures, heritages and ethics of all civilizations.

 

There are so many ways of expressing yourself through dance from the simple romantic dancing through the night with someone, or perhaps the beat of the bongo drum accompanied by rhythmic jumping while shaking your spear in the same fashion. Perhaps there is simply the waving of hands in the air which is like saying “I’m so happy that I just want to dance”.

 

When you check history, you will find that certain forms of dance have withstood the test of time. This includes dances such as the classic forms of dance, like the waltz or ballet which have been around for centuries. Then there are the forms of dance that are classified as new, or fairly new, which you may have heard of. Such new dances are those like break dancing, jazz, hip-hop, tap dancing and cha-cha-cha, to name only a few of them. To do any of these the dancer needs to be creative and make it their own through using the body to emit the feeling of understanding the feel of the music and express it through the art of dance.

 

For those that love dancing, there are fortunately many career paths available. You can choose to train other dancers in styles such as Highland Dance, waltz or tango and get them ready for upcoming dance form specific competitions. These competitions focus on just one type of dance style and therefore you know what you’re getting into. If you feel capable of training a group of dancers to perform something like a Highland Fling, then go and do so.

 

Choreography is all. Imagine a musical like Cats not being choreographed perfectly, with all the cats supposedly doing their own thing, but in a manner which makes it seem natural. Imagine the Cats singing rhythmically, but not knowing what to do with their hands and their feet. That is where a choreographer comes in. He is so well-versed in the art of dance that he is going to tell the dancer/singer to lift up one arm high, when she is hitting high C. That is going to give her diaphragm, chest and lungs more space to expand. So if you think that you know about the coordination of dance, rhythm and song, choreography is the career for you.

 

Ballroom dancing is another career option open for a performing artist. You can go all around the world taking part in ballroom competitions, and winning prizes. Professional performers can also take part in Latin dance competitions and other traditional competitions. You might also want to go in for teaching dance, or become a dancing sport coach. You may teach Pilates and yoga or become a hobby class teacher.

 

Helene Goldnadel is a life coach and teaches the young actors how to simply empower each other and how to make a real difference as per the quality of the work on set. If your child is above 5 years of age and you are looking forward to making him join some activity, then dance lessons at Helene Goldnadel’s Institute is highly recommended. Along with dance classes there are also other creative activities available here like learning music and theatre, if your child is interested in the same.

What is Music and Movement For Children?

In recent years, Music & Movement classes for young children have been all the rage. Yet many parents do not understand what a music and movement class is all about, or what it can do for their children. Many parents confuse it with a traditional music class in which the child learns to play an instrument such as keyboard or violin. Some believe that Music and Movement classes are about ‘music appreciation’ – a misnomer because, unless one is addressing a specific genre of music to gain deeper insights, appreciating music as an act in itself does not require attending classes.

So what is music and movement and its benefits?

In a nutshell, a music and movement class uses music as a medium to inspire and encourage children to experience and participate in the making of music through use of the different senses in the body. Hence in a typical class, the child will use his sight, hearing, vocal chords, brain, and limbs, when he sings, reads, dances, listens to sounds, music and instructions and move to rhythms and beats. It is an experiential approach to developing musicality and musicianship.

As a child listens, moves, sings, plays and interacts with his peers through music, he gains insight into different musical elements, and foundational musical skills. These include a strong sense of beat and rhythm, correct pitch sense, musical expressiveness, understanding of musical styles and genres, acuity in differentiating musical nuances, and a passion for music that would see them through the discipline required of them when they learn to play an instruments.

The constant use and stimulation of the child’s five basic senses not only help the child’s physical development, it also facilitates the creative and lateral thinking capabilities. All domains of their development (physical, cognitive, social, emotional, as well as linguistic) will benefit from participation in such programs, as long as these are well conceived and taught by qualified and experienced teachers.

Helene Goldnadel and her staff have been the driving factor towards personal growth for children for years. Helene Goldnadel has dedicated her life to children and the education which they receive at Helene Goldnadel’s acting institution.

She personally coaches personal growth and of course, singing. She has successfully placed outstanding graduates of her school’s for years.
