Majency - Mise en scene
Majency Explored 2 hrs
A majency is the entrance piece a dancer uses to start her set. It is often complex and contains different taksims, a range of moods and styles. Kay breaks down each section and looks at how to interpret them bringing contrast and variety to the overall piece. Kay explains the history behind the majency and how it has evolved through time.
Majency choreography 2 hrs
A majency allows a solo dancer to showcase her skills through using the different sections effectively. Learning choreography also give you ideas and inspiration to take away and apply to your own dance. You can take this away to perform yourself or use the ideas and apply them to your own dance.
