GUIDE QUESTIONS FOR BM's HALO-HALO NI JUAN
Your reaction must be computer-printed on short bond paper using 12-point font (Times New Roman) with 1 and 1/2 spacing for better readability.
The more profound and well thought out your answers to the questions, the better the score. (Read my dance review of Ballet Philippines' Shoes++ to get some ideas on how to write a critical analysis on a dance performance.)
Please edit your paper so that it will merit a higher grade.
Answer each of the following in two to three paragraphs.
1. Rate the overall performance of Ballet Manila in their 15th Year Anniversary Crystal Gala titled Halo-Halo ni Juan from 1 to 10 (10 being the highest possible score and 1 being the lowest). Explain the reasons for your assessment.
2. Among the various dance vignettes of Ballet Manila's Halo-Halo ni Juan, which one (give the title of the dance number) did you enjoy the most and why?
3. Between classical/neoclassical ballet and modern/contemporary dance, which do you prefer? Give the title/s of the dance vignette/s that caught your attention in explaining your choice.
