I definitely favored a lot of the more emotional pieces.
Having costumes and a theme of the show based around certain Disney movies made it unique.
The duets were mostly all good. Maria and Safi’s piece was really the only piece that branched out into different hip-hop and ballet moves.
A lot of the dancers really had their own unique facial expressions dancing.
Sunnymead’s first and third performances were great, especially the first. They actually incorporated all the elements of an entertaining routine—comedy, acting, and dancing.
However, there were a few things missing.
There was barely any hip-hop. Nothing really got me hyped up, but seeing as the choreographers were in a lyrical/jazz/ballet/contemporary background, it was understandable. I saw like one illusion formation with some tutting, and that was the highlight of the hip-hop.
The levels. They were pretty plain. Plus, using the stage and creatively switching positions on stage was limited. Made the performers a bit flat.
I noticed the choreography was mostly done to the lyrics, not the beat. I think choreographing to the beat gets the real essence of a song.
The choreography didn’t switch tempo. If it was a fast song, it was fast choreo. If it was a slow song, it was slow choreo. There was no fast-slow-fast-slow to change up the pace.
Overall, it was fun. I love watching any type of dancing, despite my bias towards hip-hop. Hopefully I’m going again tomorrow!
If you don’t know what it is, it’s supposed to be the “In-N-Out” of the East Coast. It was pretty good! I love the customizations on their burgers. I put lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, jalapenos, mayonnaise, BBQ sauce, and hot sauce on my cheeseburger, LOL. I also got some of their fries. Their fries were a’ight. I really want to try their Cajun fries though.
I highly recommend to try if you’ve never had it. I still think In-N-Out has a better burger though, haha.
