Dance rehearsal and choreography

Watching choreography today reminded me of the design term CRAP. Now you think I'm full of it don't you? Graphic designers sometimes use the term to evaluate their designs and it seems like it could be applied to dance as well, since every dance sequence has some amount of Contrast, Repetition, Alignment and Proximity or CRAP. I think Ammon had a good balance of each. A bit aggressive for everyone to learn perhaps, but entertaining nonetheless.

It was fun to see him work with the cast, but it seemed like maybe I should have joined in since I'm the one that probably needs to shed some extra pounds!

Instead, I bellied up to the piano and ate the blueberry pound cake I picked up from King Soopers early in the morning. Afterwards, everyone unwound and talked about the dance numbers.
