GENERAL INFORMATION

For our Eisteddfod, the follow genres are defined as ( taken from Dance Adjudicators Genre List from AESA ):  Students are to ensure they enter the correct sections and adjudication will be based on the following definitions.

 

CONTEMPORARY 

The Contemporary genre has evolved over the last 100 years and there are certain styles of contemporary that teachers can research such as Cunningham, Graham, Limon and Rambert the Choreography will depend on the choreographer’s intent and purpose. 

It could include the use of motif and great use of the space. On the other hand the choreographers intent maybe to use only minimal space to explore the music via movement and this is also a valid work. The use of technique should/could include use of centre, off centre, falling, running, articulation of spine and limbs, release of the whole spine when hanging over, use of safety foot getting in and out of the floor, range of levels including floor work. The choreography should not include typical steps from other genre such as ballet, jazz or acro etc.

 

NEO-CLASSICAL / LYRICAL

Closely linked to classical ballet, this genre is a section where emotion and expression is closely linked to the performance and particularly to the music. Music may be instrumental or with lyrics. Good flow and continuity through the music too. Get her with great control of adagio type movements.
