Modern Dance Is A Great Way To Express Your Emotions

Modern Dance Is A Great Way To Express Your Emotions

Article by Mike Selvon

Modern dance is a style of dance that is more emotionally expressive than classical ballet. It is actually one of the more recent inventions in the world of dance. When modern dancing first got started, the public society did not like it at all, but it eventually grew on them. Now, it is an integral part of the dance world.

Its style originated in the U.S. and Germany, probably because the US had no ancient, traditional dancing styles to follow, such as classical ballet. Now, many ballet school classes offer modern dancing lessons. The idea behind it was that people should be allowed to express themselves and other things through their movements.

The Ballet Bible

The Ballet Bible

When I first purchased this book I thought that it would be something fun to share with my students. I collect all things related to dance, knicknacks, posters, DVDs…hence books. When I stumbled upon the eBook online I thought at the very most that it would be a nice addition to my collection of souvenirs. I am a dance teacher and volunteer with work at a dance competition and I am always looking for things about the ‘world of dance’, I just love anything to do with dancing. I am a very big fan of So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing With The Stars. I can’t wait for them to start again.

So when I actually had the opportunity to read the Ballet Bible I was presently surprised! It surpassed my expectations (which hadn’t been very high considering the sales pitch). I had actually found a true gem, an eBook about ballet with solid, valid teaching techniques. The book has over 200 pages of VALID information – SURPRISE! SURPRISE!

The History of Ballet

The History of Ballet

There is one big clue to the history of ballet – its language! All ballet terms are French – with good reason, because ballet really started at the courts of Louis XIV.

There had been ballets in Europe since the 1400’s. But if a modern ballet fan could see one of these shows, they’d scarcely call it ballet – the dancers didn’t do much more than march and bow. However, our 21st-century audience would recognize some of the steps.

Typical Nfl Season

Typical Nfl Season
It was another typical NFL season. The teams that always win won and the teams that always lose lost.

Seven of the twelve teams in the playoffs this year were in the playoffs last year. After missing the playoffs in 2009, the Pittsburgh Steelers returned to their normal place in the post season. Peyton Manning and Tom Brady led their teams to division titles. The schizophrenic Cincinnati Bengals went from first to worst in their division. Tampa Bay won 7 more games in 2010 than they won in 2009 but still failed to make the playoffs. The Miami Dolphins went 7 and 9 as they did in 2009 and kept their coach. The Cleveland Browns were 5 and 11 as they were in 2009 and fired their coach. Despite improving from 5 and 11 to 8 and 8, Oakland fired their head coach.

The annual merry-go-round of coaches continued in 2010 as it does every year. Some coaches are fired for good reason and some for bad. Media pressure and not getting along with the owner always causes some good coaches to lose their jobs. This year, as every year, some coaches who were very good at their previous positions,proved to be inept as head coaches.
