Student Services - Overview
|The creation of a dance routine demands time, effort and your money.
|You wouldn't necessarily shy away from putting skill and cash into a costume but one area of expense which often attracts less consideration is that for the preparation of the music which is the underlying foundation for the dance.
|Essentially it would be a shame if a scrappy soundtrack detracted from the final performance.
|Music, if skilfully chosen or crafted, can give a great atmospheric lift and, to this end, a totally original track which no one will have heard before, is likely to focus the attention of adjudicators and audiences in a way not always achieved by material which has been heard repeatedly at various festivals or competitions.
|Such tracks will be created to a careful brief in regard to story-line or national or other theme and their length will of course be tailored to the requirements of the class.
|In fact various versions can often be prepared to offer a choice if the specifications are flexible.
|If existing material is required or preferred but doesn't quite match the requirements of a routine then it can be carefully abridged or extended. (If the original material is in copyright then certain permissions may be needed).
|And music, perhaps originally written for piano, can also be given extra musical colour by the use of sensitive orchestration - Again such material may be subject to copyright restrictions but please ask.
|So is this extra expenditure worthwhile?
|Well, consider the advantages already mentioned plus the fact that you can be sure that such tracks will create a much better background than those off the shelf recordings that may have been subjected to amateurish cut and paste.
|Although a lot of our work is biased towards festivals and competitions we also specialise in creating and producing recorded music for shows and performances where there is no competitive element.
