Group 2 Live Blog Post #2

When the first dance was complete we all went ere asked to help love the chairs and the stadium to create more space. After about a 5 minute intermission everyone had fun energy while we were patiently waiting for the next activity to start. When we all came together afterwards we began to do a full group dance with anyone and everyone. At first the performers were the only ones dancing but little by little more people began to get involved. It is an awesome experience and the rhythm we danced to was called ”Seega”. It is an important dance for their performers culture which is why they seem so excited about sharing some of their culture with the rest of us in attendance

The first dance they do consists of staring at each other from only a couple feet away. They both begin by stomping their feet in unison while one of the dancers speaks in a different language while both dancers continue their unified stomping. The stomping then increases in tempo and rigor while the speaking also intensifies. The dancer doing the speaking goes into what almost looks like a solo with the other dancer beingused as background. The dancer turns into the second background dancer stomping to create a beat or sound for the first dancer where she begins to do quick, sporadi dance movement that seem to go hang in hand with the beat being made by the other dancers stomping. They both are still continuing to look at each other throughout the whole dance creating a sense of connection between the two almost as if one dancer can’t complete their performance without the other there
