  4. 4. Historical Events<br />Lack of knowledge in dance required a lot of research<br />Discovered Max Walaman and Barbara Morgan<br />Admired Max Walaman for his form, use, and techniques with the camera<br />Modeled after Barbara Morgan for position and movement of dancers, along with costume and prop usage<br />Improvement of technology=improvement of Greenfield’s photography<br />When cameras were becoming more digital, didn’t requite film and had many more features-sped up photography process<br />Made more successful<br />

  9. 9. Stylistic Traits <br />#1-Beauty, effortlessness, elegance<br />#2-Strength and power<br />#3-Movement, time, motion<br />#4-Extension and grace<br />
  10. 10. Extension, beauty, effortlessness- the extension of her legs and arms, the angle of her body, and the beauty of the costume. Makes movements look effortless<br />Strength, power- power required to create big movements<br />Movement, time, motion- the motion of the costumes, hair, leg position and body position. Demonstrates element of time.<br />Elegance and grace- position of dancer, costume’s connection with dancer’s pose. <br />Lenore Pavlakos<br />
  11. 11. Extension, beauty, effortlessness- precision of each body part <br />Strength, power- power of turn and jump. Demonstrated through facial expressions and costumes or hair. <br />Movement, time,<br />Motion- demonstrated through position of hair, and where the dancer is in comparison to the ground. Suspended in the air <br />Grace, elegance-<br />elegant and graceful<br />movements, yet still<br />contain the strength<br />and power to maintain<br />jump. <br />OdaraJaeali-Nash<br />

Extension, beauty,<br />effortlessness- dancer’s graceful<br />and natural beauty that is often<br />found on ballerinas.<br />Strength, power-<br />Required to make jumps and<br />keep position looking good<br />Movement, time,<br />Motion- each dancer isn’t in a pose<br />that they could hold for a while, it<br />requires little time to stay in that<br />specific pose. <br />Grace, elegance- again, mainly<br />found naturally in ballerinas, the<br />elegance of their movements really<br />stand out compared to other<br />dancers. <br />New York City Ballet<br />
