How Hula Dancers Connect Hawaii’s Past and Present | If Cities Could Dance
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

Honolulu is home to tourism hotspot Waikiki, and many of the city’s beachfront hotels host lavish luaus showcasing styles of hula influenced by Western music and instrumentation. But for Native Hawaiians, the origins of hula are deeply spiritual and rooted in Hawaii’s creation stories and the history and culture of their kūpuna or ancestors. Driven by the mele (poetry), hula marries movement with spoken word to express stories about specific deities, people, places and events.

ISKME GoPro Learning Challenge Submission Example
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about how I could incorporate video into my own learning processes, and wondered, if I were to participate in the ISKME GoPro Learning Challenge, what would I want to create? I looked back to the very first time I really started using video in my daily life, and, surprise surprise, it was to create a teaching tool for myself.

I’m a dancer, and for years I’d practiced dancing in my bedroom, sometimes in front of a mirror. But I’d never recorded myself dancing. Once I did, I realized it could have a tremendous impact on my skill level as a dancer. Especially when preparing for a performance, the videos enabled me to see my weaknesses and memorize choreography more readily.

My great idea is to use GoPro to record myself and my fellow students as we learn new choreography, and to share those videos with each other and with our teacher so we can track and measure our progress, and receive personalized feedback.

J-Setting: From Southern HBCUs to the Clubs of Atlanta | If Cities Could Dance
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND

0.0 stars

J-Sette dancers bring energy, precision and stunts to the floor, and the Dance Champz of Atlanta are trying to take this underground LGBTQ+ art form to the next level. The roots of J-Setting are in Mississippi, at Jackson State University, where the Prancing J-Settes adapted majorette dancing, losing the batons and bringing in African American and jazz dance influences. Leland Thorpe and his team are on a mission to get the underground version of the dance form taken more seriously in the wider dance world. Thorpe is passionate about bringing more formal technique to the dance, and with his experience in Detroit studying jazz and ballet, he brings a faster pace and more sophistication to the Atlanta style.

Looking at Light

Looking at Light is an introductory text for theatre lighting designers. It is an appropriate resource for students at the college or university level who are interested in learning about lighting design at a fundamental level.

While the resource is designed as an introductory lighting design program for University students, it may also be useful to high school students who are interested in technical theatre, adults who are involved in community theatres, high school teachers who find themselves being responsible for lighting (even though they have little training in the area), or professionals and amateur theatre and dance practitioners from non-lighting areas.

This is a design-based course, and while there is some effort to explain the technology involved with theatrical lighting, it is not meant to be a resource to learn how to be an electrician or programmer.

Music, Dance and the Archive reimagines records of performance cultures from the archive through collaborative and creative research. In this edited volume, Amanda Harris, Linda Barwick and Jakelin Troy bring together performing artists, cultural leaders and interdisciplinary scholars to highlight the limits of archival records of music and dance. Through artistic methods drawn from Indigenous methodologies, dance studies and song practices, the contributors explore modes of re-embodying archival records, renewing song practices, countering colonial narratives and re-presenting performance traditions. The book’s nine chapters are written by song and dance practitioners, curators, music and dance historians, anthropologists, linguists and musicologists, who explore music and dance by Indigenous people from the West, far north and southeast of the Australian continent, and from Aotearoa New Zealand, Taiwan and Turtle Island (North America).

Albuquerque’s thriving hip-hop and freestyle dance scene is influenced by Indigenous dancers from many tribes, Pueblos and other communities. A strong sense of solidarity holds it all together, say dancers Anne Pesata (Jicarilla Apache) and Raven Bright (Diné). The couple describes the scene as “Indigenous futurism.” Meet Randy L. Barton, or Randy Boogie, a dancer, DJ and artist (Navajo) who created The Sacred Cypher, an event that highlights how Indigenous art forms connect with hip-hop.
