Goldstein Auditorium was jam-packed last weekend for the annual DanceWorks showcase at Syracuse University. The talented group of dancers worked their asses off – tapping, swaying, and leaping their way across the stage. Watching the dancers perform, it’s easy to notices differences in dance style. Taking this into consideration, The Student Voice wonders: What type of dancer are you?
The Experienced Dancer
This dancer sashayed before she walked. Her wardrobe consists of leotards and leg warmers. She can master any style and blow the audience away.
This is the girl at the party with a red solo cup in hand, and red-hot stilettos on her feet. Maybe intoxicated, maybe just awkward. Either way, we like her because she’s different and inevitably thinking to herself, “What am I doing?” If you haven’t witnessed this hysterical scene at one point in your college careers, you were probably the one dancing.
The Hand Gesture Dancer
This dancer prefers to use his hands rather than his feet to express himself. Examples include Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” Madonna’s “Vogue,” and N*SYNC’s “Bye,Bye,Bye” routine.
The Jumping Dancer
“Jump up, Jump up, and get down!” For this dancer, the stage is like a trampoline. Songs that work perfectly with this dance routine include Franz Ferdinand’s “Take Me Out,” Soulja Boy’s “Crank That Soulja Boy,” The B-52’s “Love Shack,” and The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.”
