Emotional Storytelling Choreography—A Look Into The Work Of Mia Michaels, Bethany Emery 2011 Virginia Commonwealth University

Emotional Storytelling Choreography—A Look Into The Work Of Mia Michaels, Bethany Emery

Theses and Dissertations

One of the top television reality shows today is So You Think You Can Dance? This show showcases many talents of top choreographers, including Ms. Mia Michaels. But what makes her stand out from the other choreographers in her field? With this thesis I explore why I believe Mia Michaels to be the best emotional storytelling choreographer of the twenty-first century. Analyzing examples from the show, four from Michaels and four from other choreographers and using a movement scoring method, I find why her work stands out. I will also explain how Michaels got her start in choreography, her philosophy ...

Do you believe in miracles?

Les Trois Visionnaires: The Narrative Of Balzac, Flaubert, And Zola, Jonathan C. Landwer 2011 Rollins College

Les Trois Visionnaires: The Narrative Of Balzac, Flaubert, And Zola, Jonathan C. Landwer

Jonathan C. Landwer

The focus of this study concerns the critical analysis and interpretation of three nineteenth-century French novels: La Cousine Bette by Honoré de Balzac, one of the pair of Les Parents Pauvres novels and last of La Comédie Humaine; Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert, his first complete and successful novel; and, Nana, Émile Zola’s ninth novel in the Rougon-Macquart series. The voice of the authors is of particular interest to this study: how they, as writers, manipulate their creations through effective narrative to convey action to the character, suspense in a scene, and conflicts in plot. It is through the ...


Focus On Frequency: A Comparison Of First-Year German Vocabularies, Ronald Eric Johnson 2011 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Focus On Frequency: A Comparison Of First-Year German Vocabularies, Ronald Eric Johnson

Ronald Eric Johnson

Foreign language teachers, experts of pedagogy, and textbook publishers often cite frequency as an important tool in the creation of textbooks, as well as in teaching students a foreign language. These same figures, however, rarely question the application of frequency in these works. This thesis examines the application of frequency over a range of first-year German textbooks compared to a textbook that is explicitly based on a particular frequency dictionary. These textbooks are compared to each other and to the Jones and Tschirner Frequency Dictionary of German and Pfeffer’s Grunddeutsch: Basic (Spoken) German Word List, Grundstufe.

A Small City's Big Scandal: Municipal Corruption, Progressive Reform, And The Grand Rapids, Michigan Water Scandal, 1900-1906, Brian F. Sarnacki

Dissertations, Theses, & Student Research, Department of History

At the turn of century the city of Grand Rapids, Michigan began debating plans for expanding its water supply. These debates quickly spawned corrupt dealings, which in turn produced the city’s water scandal. The city’s first genuine scandal, the water scandal marks a turning point in the city’s history. The fact that the rather ordinary bribery scheme became a scandalous event reveals the city had adopted enough of the Progressive ethos to punish corruption. The water scandal stands as the tipping point of municipal politics in Grand Rapids between Gilded Age politics rooted in personal connections and ...
