The marvellous Mia Michaels choreographed this Musical Theatre, jazz routine ‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot’ with the intent to entertain the audience with strong and upbeat movements. Whilst watching the video a man and women are shown having a love affair and an extremely angry group of women dancing in a church showing hatred towards a particular man, Stacee Jaxx. All up, this clip is entertaining to watch.
The non-movement elements come together and are effective. Various pastel dresses and pant suits are worn in this routine. The aggressive women are also wearing white or tan high heeled shoes and puffed up hair fringes. These non-movement costumes were worn to convince the audience that the Christians are innocent and powerful and are going to win the fight against the rock star Stacee Jaxx. This was done successfully.
The next non-movement elements of set is great! In the video the viewer can clearly see around the church that there is several candelabras placed evenly around the room. Rows of seats are in the middle of the room and a massive picture of Stacee Jaxx is hung up above the stage at the front of the church. Also, there is a grand looking organ instrument and different bouquets of flowers. The video very vividly shows that the group of women are dancing in a church because of the candles, rows of wooden seats and Jesus crosses around the room. It is a contradiction that all these ‘sex drugs and rock n roll’ topics are confronted in the ‘godly’ church.
The movement elements, steps and energy, were used excellently to portray the housewives hate towards the Stacee Jaxx. Michaels used a variety of motifs such as strong kicking and gun pointing to express that the housewives are not going to allow Jaxx to continue his horrific actions. The group of aggressive women started at the back of the church and eventually Patricia Whitemore led the group in a triangle position down the isle of the chairs. When the music began to pick up pace they moved into the chair rows and started dancing and kicking in towards the picture of Stacee Jaxx. Overall these moment elements were used outstandingly well and was very entertaining.
To conclude this analysis it is quite clear that this routine is entertaining to watch. The non-movement and movement elements help convey the purpose of the dance. The Musical Theatre routine was very amusing to watch and Mia Micheal does an outstanding job of conveying the main point of Hit Me With Your Best Shot which To conclude this analysis it is quite clear that this routine is entertaining to watch. The non-movement and movement elements help convey the purpose of the dance. The Musical Theatre was very amusing to watch and Mia Micheals does an outstanding job of conveying the main point of Hit Me With Your Best Shot was that the women wanted to get rid of Stacee Jaxx and his sex, rock 'n' roll and hateful music, although Whitmores husband is also having an affair and she was into rock 'n' roll when she was younger.
