Choreography Show II Summary


Choreography Show II Summary 120406

The DANCE QUEENS Choreography Show II featured couples dancing. As part of the show each audience member received details of the dances that were performed so that they could see how the choreographer did it. An overall video of excerpts of the show was provided by Darq Taurus. The show was also videoed by Riddlebox Ribble and below I have combined the videos that Riddle made with the information provided by each dance couple. The videos are best seen full screen.

ANIMATIONS:
Start animation:  the waiting animation that comes with the TIS

Waiting animation:  Loving Hands from Ministry of Motion
Song 2: Ragdoll from A&M Mocap Animations
Waiting animation:  Loving Hands from Ministry of Motion
Song 3: RocknRoll from A&M Mocap Animations
Ending animation:  Air Kiss from Bio VV


COMMENTS BY THE CHOREOGRAPHER:
The TIS Fusion Pro makes it possible to use your own couples dances at your favorite clubs.  An inconspicuous TIS pose ball server must be rezzed at clubs that do not have a TIS dancing system. 
A&M Mocap Animations recently introduced couples animations that are top notch and perfect for using in the TIS Fusion Pro.
Between dances, it is nice to have a couples waiting animation.  We searched high and low for one.  The best we found was at Ministry of Motion.
The ending animation is a fun couples animation from Bio VV.
Poofers add some pizzaz to couples dances.

COMMENTS BY THE CHOREOGRAPHER:
The song I have chosen for ray and myself to dance is Rythm of the dancer. It took me a while to find the right song I wanted I find thats the hardest part

I have used 2 huds to dance us, one for Ray and one for myself. The timing to each dance are exactly the same. I activated the f keys to start us both at the same time. This is a must to get us dancing the couple dances together.
I have used ZZ's move system to move us in the right positions

COMMENTS BY THE CHOREOGRAPHER:
Victor Heredia's beautiful but sad song about a man who has lost his love to death forms the basis of this dance. He dreams of their past life together as he deals with his present life alone.

The sequence has several pass-thoughs that I decided to leave in to show the ethereal nature of the feelings he has. I paid special attention to the hands and arms in this dance and tried to express how I felt at each point. In creating this dance I have now heard the song about 225 times ... and I still love it. It still makes me cry.

COMMENTS BY THE CHOREOGRAPHER:
The colors black and gold represent two characters, who both are alone, but still somehow together in their loneliness. Their sequences have same timing, but use different style. "Black" dances more into the beat, while "Gold" follows more the melody.

So even both will move different, together they create strange synergy with each other, showing one will never be really alone.
But what story they are telling? Thats up to you to decide... :)

COMMENTS BY THE CHOREOGRAPHER:
Thank you for your interest in our show!
Max and I have been dancing in SL almost since we first arrived.  We started in the usual way, dancing on balls or Intans at clubs and then with others on their dance huds.  But we quickly realized we wanted more from dance. We wanted to be able to control our own dancing in a way that reflected what WE felt when listening to the music.  We then invested in our own dance huds and began collecting dances.
With the help of our friends, and DQ, we soon learned about sequencing and started dancing professionally with a dance troupe.  We now dance for two troupes in SL and are challenged daily to push the envelope of expression and creativity.
We chose to show you our Smooth Criminal Act today because it is a good place to start if you are new to couple dancing.  􀀂
has the entire couple sequence neatly tucked into a pose ball set and is offering it for FREE! under the name "Liquid Felon"

You could simply rezz the set, jump on the pose balls and start dancing.  However,  that isn't very professional looking, nor is it 'smooth'.  Pose balls tend to get out of sync, and although many will resync themselves, its not something you want happening in the middle of your act.
The solution is relatively simple, you tear the pose balls down and put the animations in your own dance hud.  You may chose to put both male and female parts in one hud and have one of you dance you both, or each of you take your respective animations and dance yourself, coordinating with your partner (as we did).
Either way it can be tricky getting yourselves positioned just right and in sync.  Here is how we did it.
After we loaded the animations into our huds, we determined how long each piece of the sequence ran and made a sequenced notecard running each dance for the correct amount of time.
We then determined exactly where the first dance positioned us and placed a dance pad at that position.  One for each of us. The pads we use can have any pose dropped into them, and for this step it was just a generic stand.
Once we established that our pads were placed correctly (that we weren't passing through one another, or missing each other when we were supposed to be together), we created and added custom stands to the pads, and to the sequence notecards in our huds.
These custom animations must also be timed exactly so that both dancers start the actual dance at the same time.  You can see from the sequences below how we did that.
When using several different couple dances that you want to sequence, you basically follow the same steps as you would in sequencing single dance animations.  Determine the length of time you want each dance to run (coordinating with your partner of course) and then build your sequence so that you have a smooth flowing routine that has you dancing together.  The only difference is that you have to determine your starting position so that as each of you moves through the sequence you stay together.  With a little practice you will soon get the hang of it.
I hope this helps you expand your dance experience into the world of couple dancing.  Whether you do it for fun, or professionally, it is exciting to be in control of how YOU move on the dance floor.

COMMENTS BY THE CHOREOGRAPHER:
Hello, Dance Queens and everyone.

We are MaHal, from Japan.
I have choreographed almost 200 couple dances, but this is the first time I dance at Dance Queens.
It's a kind of showcase, so I chose two dances very different from each other.
One is Janet Kline's rock n roll, "Who's That Knocking at My Door?" and the other is "The Phantom of the Opera" by Sarah Brightman.

We usually dance to Latin and oriental music. I want to show some of them some time!
Our HUD is "MLDU 5+". It's a unique dance HUD and I want to show you what you can do with it.
We dance on balls, so please don't focus on dancers by "ALT+left-clicking". Otherwise your eyes will move and might feel dizzy.
Thanks Nottoo and everyone that have organized this show.
xxx,
Psyche Lunasea
