Ok so im not sure if im really understanding the whole concept of facial expressions. there are some things i havent figured out yet,, maybe you can help... So first of all, i wonder, are there any rules regarding facial expressions? I understand the fact that the dancer has to express the dance in every possible way, and the face is a great "tool". But ive seen alot of weird expressions (for instance, yulia zagarouthecnko) where i get confused.. sometimes it feels that some dancers just over-do alot of expressions that dosent eaven fit (my personal opinion).. So i have some more questions, Is it important to smile alot or all the time? Is it important to interact with the audience? Is it a must to do it? Is it important to keep your head high all the time? /Maybe not a facial expression related question but i think its in the same group/, cause my coach told me that i have to keep my head high all the time, cause it looks better. But sometimes i need to look down cause i do a theatrical expression to express the dance, am i wrong then? Should i all the time look above the audience as he thought me? So basically ive been thinking about these things alot. What is actually expected from a dancer (competition dancer on a higher level) if there are any guidelines everyone should follow regarding facial expressions? thanks for help.
