For me, the dance concert was a transcendental experience. I connected on a spiritual level with the dancers' every motion, and it lead me to a level of self actualization I had never before experienced as I attended to those who didn't have the decency to come in between dances, but rather insisted upon opening the squeakiest door in existence in the middle of the dance.
But my deep, passionate and abounding love for hyperbole aside, it was pretty terrific. I distinctly remember being in a horrible mood before ushering for it, and by the end I was in such high spirits that on the way home I sang along to Lady Gaga. Loudly. I am not exactly a Lady Gaga fan, so this was very out of character behavior. The first hint I got that this dance concert was going to be enjoyable was that a dance towards the beginning used music by Andrew Bird. Then there was a dance about the Rorschach test, which I thought was simply outstanding, and a dance involving a lot of suspenders. In case it's not apparent to the average reader, suspenders are a very good thing. A VERY good thing. And finally, the concert wrapped up with Journey. I have come to the conclusion that Journey makes everything better. I hope Journey is played at my funeral, which let's be honest, is going to be the most tragic event in human history.
Despite the fact that I enjoyed very specific aspects of the concert which may not have been very important to most people, I feel that this shows that the dance concert can be appreciated in a variety of ways and by a variety of individuals, which is a characteristic of any good concert.
