What Exactly Does a Choreographer Do?

Date Mon, January 23 2017

Dancers thrill many people all over the world every year in movies and in live stage shows. However, all of this great dancing does not happen by accident. A great deal of time and practice is required to make every dance performance perfect. Needless to say, every dancer needs to rehearse a lot in order to memorize every step. The art of getting people to dance perfectly to a routine is called choreography. The man or woman responsible for putting the entire dance routine together from start to finish is known as the choreographer. This is a person who has devoted his or her entire life to the dancing profession. You have probably heard of choreographers before. However, you might not be totally sure what their job consists of. Here is some additional info that will help make the job of a choreographer more clear to you.

1. The choreographer creates all of the dance moves that will be used in a performance.

The first step in the creation of a dance routine if the creation of the dance steps. This often involves creating dance steps that will be performed by sometimes dozens of dancers who are all on the stage at the same time. As you might imagine, this can often take a long time. In many cases, there will be many different sections of choreography. In other words, dancers will be constantly coming and going from the stage. This makes it even more difficult to invent new dance routines that look fresh and do not repeat anything done before. You can follow choreographer Craig Revel Horwood on Twitter to learn about how he creates his dance routines.

2. Choosing the right music for each element of the choreography is also important.

The dancers will obviously need something to dance to. This means that music will need to be selected for each specific section of the dance routine. The choreographer will choose songs that create the appropriate emotional response from the crowd. The music selection is very important for the overall success of a dance routine. Choreographers will often go through dozens of songs until they find the right one.

3. The choreographer will then need to instruct the dancers.

The long rehearsal process will begin. This can be grueling because every part of the routine will need to be practiced until it is perfect.

WordPress User In Need of Hosting? Try WP Engine

Date Tue, January 17 2017

This post contains affiliate links. If you decide to subscribe to WP Engine, I will make a small commission.

WordPress has dominated the blogging/CMS market for a few years now.. to no one’s surprise. I’ve used WordPress or its predecessor to power my blogs for over a decade, can you believe it?

I’m pretty proficient at using WordPress and can install it manually with ease on any host, but if you’re not familiar with WordPress, it’s a different story altogether. You might find a host that specifically focuses on WordPress sites fits your needs better, and WP Engine is one such site.

Not only does WP Engine make it easy to transfer from other hosts (and between WP Engine accounts!), but you can monitor your installs and all the resources they’re using.

It’s good for bloggers as well as anyone who manages blogs for others, especially thanks to the development staging feature. With WP Engine, you can set up a blog without making it live. This enables you to install and modify themes, add plugins and otherwise customize your blog to a T before it goes live. I can’t tell you how often I wish I had such an option available to me as a blogger, and it would be more that convenient — necessary — if setting up WordPress blogs is how you making a living.

If that’s not enticing enough, WP Engine has one more great feature: Page Performance. With Page Performance, you can analyze your site and individual pages to see how quickly (or slowly) they load. Page Performance will then suggest actions you can take to increase page-loading speed. This isn’t just useful. If your site takes too long to load, you might lose readers or customers.

You might think that your site loads fast as it, but you might be surprised at how much faster it can be. Click the banner below to test your site and see if WP Engine is a better option for you.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: The Primary Phase

Date Thu, January 12 2017

I’m a pretty big fan of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Like, I’ve got a tattoo of a fictitious whale falling to its death on the back of my shoulder big.

I own the movie, the TV series and two copies of all Ithe books. And now, thanks to an awesome friend, I own the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy radio play. Yes, the same radio play from 1978 that started it all.

To be fair, I only own the first phase, which just means the first season. It’s split up into fits or episodes that equate to the first two books, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Restaurant at the End of the Universe.

Now, if you’re less familiar with the stories than I am, you might wonder “Why do you need the Guide in another medium, Cole?” Well, the answer is this. Not only is the radio play the very.first.thing that started it all, but the author, Douglas Adams, changed something with every version. So I can see not only how the story changed throughout the years but also through different media.

So I love The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy as a book. It works very well, and I prefer reading to watching either the TV series or movie. That makes for some pretty high expectations. And The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy radio play surpassed them all with flying colors!

The story works so well as a radio play, and I really like some of the voice actors, which include

  • Peter Jones as The Book
  • Simon Jones as Arthur Dent
  • Geoffrey McGivern as Ford Prefect

In fact, I prefer Trillian and Marvin in this version; although, I will never not love Martin Freeman (who played Arthur in the movie) and Stephen Fry’s voice was perfect for narrating the movie and audiobook.

Fitting two whole books into just a few hours is no easy task. However, you could argue that it’s technically the other way around. The first phase of the radio play and the first two books in the series share all the same major plot points. But the books enabled Adams to go into deeper detail, especially concerning Arthur. The radio play doesn’t feel lacking in any way because of this, though.

In fact, listening rather than reading The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy has led me to laugh out loud quite heartily more than once, even at jokes that I’ve read more than half a dozen times.

I’ve enjoyed The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy so much that I’m looking into more radio plays to enjoy once I finished it; although, that’ll be a few weeks because I’m less than halway through the series.

There are a number of ways you can listen to the radio play. The BBC still replays episodes on a daily basis. You can buy the CDs on Amazon and then rip them to your digital collection forever (I did) or even the cassettes on eBay. But let’s get real, it’s 2017 guys! ;)

After finishing the primary phase, I got the idea to look for The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Secondary Phase through my local library. Unfortunately, my library has some of the phases on disc, but not all of them. However, I did a quick check to see if they were available as e-books through my library’s digital catalog, which uses Overdrive, and they were. If you’re really interested in nerding out with me, you can check out this option.

The last way to enjoy The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy as a radio play is through Audible. If you’re already a fan or want to sign up, you can get all of the five phases through Amazon.
