Section 1

As our group began the hunt for the perfect musical theatre song we came across many different options. However throughout our search the one song that was always present was mama mia. We loved the song, the different elements within it as well as the comedic relief it supplies we found was the perfect fit for our group. We did at times think that it would be difficult to choreograph to the song but the song “spoke” to us.

Section 2

In all honesty our group had a slow start to choreographing our dance. We found that we as a group had difficulties in the creative process as to when we should dance or when parts of the song should be more on the dramatic side. All of us in the group have to communicate effectively with one another to create moves that we all felt were fitting to the theme or story line of our dance. During the beginning stages of our dance there were many things that we continued to change and we did so effectively with vocalizing our concerns or vocalizing any additions that were made to improve the dance.

Section 3

From the start even when we had no clear vision for where we wanted our dance to go, one thing we knew from the beginning was that we wanted to dress up as old ladies and me personally as an older man. This is an idea that we thought would play up on the story line and we thought it would also enhance the humour that hopefully is underlying throughout our routine.

Section 4

The message that we are attempting to convey in this routine is a love/lust situation between the male and the female dancers. I am playing the male character in this routine and I hope to convey to my fellow dancing partners and the audience that I feel trapped by these women and that it’s exhausting to me and then eventually at the end I give up and the women win. I hope that when the audience is watching our performance that they understand the story line and that they get the humour behind it.
