Dance 2 PERFORMANCE OBSERVATION GUIDELINES 2009 Take notes on what you’re watching and write very specifically to document the performance you’ve seen in a detailed, focused manner. Your goal: to describe the dance accurately, instead of merely giving your opinion of the dance; describe and defend. The idea is to watch dance with a sharp mind. Read reviews online or in the newspapers to see how they’re written. This should be done according to the following: 1. Please give your observation a creative title. In the “lede,” or opening paragraph, state the title, date and location of performance you attended, but weave it into a compelling thought. 3. Please give a detailed overview of the performance, and mention whether the dance was considered traditional, contemporary or described in another way (example, a combination of modern dance and hip-hop). Make the event come alive for someone who didn’t see it; avoid writing a detailed laundry list of every dance in the program.
