[SOLVED] The Synthesis of Music and Dance

[SOLVED] The Synthesis of Music and Dance

The Synthesis of Music and Dance
Scenario: You will be teaching a series of dance classes at the local community center. In order to appeal to as many students as possible, you want to incorporate various types of dances and music in your classes. You also want to get a better understanding of how music and dance complement one another so that you can make appropriate music selections for the dances you will be teaching.
Use the following dance videos to start thinking about the types of music you want to use in your dance classes, as well as the movements associated with each type of dance. Consider how you will use music and movement to convey emotion as you synthesize music and dance.
You will first listen to the music in each of the following videos to get a sense of the mood the composer created. Think about how the composer used melody, rhythm, texture, timbre, and dynamics in the musical piece. You might be tempted to watch the videos at this point, but please wait until you have listened to the music and written your response before you watch each dance.
Then, you will watch each video to see how the music and dance are combined to evoke emotion. Pay attention to the movements made by the dancers and consider how these movements work with the music that was selected for each dance.
