The new dancing emotes make the purest moments in Overwatch honestly, the sync on these McCrees was beautiful.

How the duet sums it all up in Yuri on Ice

So, I’ve already made a post about how Viktor finally got mad in the final episode, but there’s something else that I haven’t read about and really wanted to discuss.


I’ve seen many posts about how the duet in the next-to-final scene was choregraphed to illustrate the lyrics, and how the lightening was put in place to show how it all changed for Yuuri when Viktor came into his life. I’ve also seen some good analysis on how the lyrics represented Viktor and Yuri’s relationship. But I think there’s more. And I’ve decided to try and tell you about it. It’s going to be a bit long but I hope you’ll get interested enough to read throug the whole thing.


How the duet in YOI final sums up Yuuri’s and Viktor’s relationship.

Maybe even the whole show (I’m still debating with myself about this one, inputs are welcome !)

Now that I’ve been watching it several times (haven’t we all ?) it seems so clear to me, so please bear with me as I’ll try and explain it to you as well as I can.

First of all, it starts with Yuuri, alone. So alone, that the blue lightening here makes it look like even the audience’s not there for him.

So here he skates, alone, tries his best, alone, jumps, alone.

I also have a theory that,if you consider that this piece sums up the whole show, the jumps might be a representation of his athletics performances at some infamous banquet ( :p ). Why ? Well, because, who comes in right after them ?

Yup. Viktor. And he comes rushing, might I add.
At this point, lightening changes, and see how Yuuri immediately welcomes him, but then turns away ?

That must be reminding you of how Viktor tried and tried again to get close to him in the firsts episodes with so little success.
And then Viktor proceeds to drag Yuri along. Until, finally, Yuri accepts him and then, what happens ?

Originally posted by enchantingnanami

Viktor lifts him up. I mean, he LITERALLY. LIFTS. HIM. UP. And not only does he lifts him up, you might notice that he also prevents Yuri from falling down. Yuri’s falling to the ice, and Viktor just goes “Nope, my beloved katsudon, not on my watch. Get up.”


And now that Yuri’s seen that Viktor not only lifts him up, but also will protect him from falling down (wich also happens in the show with that beautiful scene where Viktor makes Yuri cry), he gives in, and we get some lovely close skating with hugs and loving eyes, and sweet strokes on the cheek. Their relationship starts building up, strong and steady.

And then, another lift, because, yeah, Viktor will ALWAYS lift him up. Notice the strong pose that Yuri takes in that lift. Legs wide open, arms open, confident, taking all of the space that Viktor think he deserves, and at that point I believe he also thinks he deserves it.

And now, well, now they’re on the same page, and how better to show it than with some synchronised dancing  ?

After that we get the most intimate passage of the song - and, I dare say, of thei relationship. Symbolized, of course, with that part showing their hands and matching engagement rings.

Then, they keep dancing together, and this time they are both leading the way, supporting each other. Viktor’s not dragging Yuri anymore. They walk at the same time on the same path.

I’ll just mention before finishing one of the last images where we see Yuri behind Viktor, now being the supportive one. If you think about it regarding their relationship, you can think of it as representation of Yuri’s decision to retire to let Viktor go back to the ice. And frome the whole show’s point of view … Well, we know what decisions were made.

Speaking of last image … How come we didn’t get the final pose of that duet ? The end ? The finish ? As much as I would have loved to see them in their final pose together (and you all know how important those poses are at the end of a program, and that’s a thing we’ve always been shown so far, in every program from every character), we can see the fact that there isn’t one here as something telling us … Well, there’s no end to that story yet.

annadream  asked:

You seriously do these so well, they're so nice and thought-out and links to examples....I request one for Sungyeol. Because he's so wonderful but gets underestimated far too often. Please and thank you!

Okay, so I previously did Woohyun and Sunggyu, and now it’s my handsome and small son Sungyeol! Sungyeol often gets overlooked in INFINITE, and that is just not okay. So here are some reasons to show him more love, because he definitely deserves it!

1. ACTOR YEOL!

If there is one thing Sungyeol does amazingly well, it’s act. He has always had aspirations to be an actor, and was originally in the SM Acting Academy before he joined Woollim. He didn’t set out to be in an idol group, but aren’t we glad he ended up in INFINITE? Sungyeol has been in multiple dramas over the years, including Please Remember Princess, Hi-School Love On (alongside fellow member Woohyun) and D-Day

Also here is Yeol acting in a CF for a dog shelter, part of INFINITE’s appearance on Birth of a Family:

2. SUNGYEOL THE ENTERTAINER

It goes without saying that INFINITE wouldn’t be as successful on variety shows if it weren’t for members like Sungyeol. He has perfect comedy timing and has never minded throwing himself fully into skits and giving everything he has for hilarity - image? What image? Let’s never forget Sungyeol’s animal impressions, the infamous owl face, his hilarious dancing or the many, many times he’s gone all out for his solo stages (Troublemaker with Sungjong, PSY’s Daddy, ioi’s Pick Me).

And here is a personal favourite of mine, Sexy Back ft Hoya:

3. VOCAL IMPROVEMENT / HOW DOES HE DANCE WITH THOSE LIMBS?!

Although Sungyeol did not set out to be a singer, you would have to be totally ignorant not to notice what an improvement he has made vocally in the 7 years since debut. He has never been one to say he can sing, remaining humble about his skills and often even putting himself down. But it shows that he’s trained his voice when you listen to him on album tracks and during live performances. He may not get the most lines, but he often gets some of the most memorable ones in songs (”Do you hear me?” anyone???). Here is a compilation of some of his lines. Then there is the fact that Sungyeol can rap! Okay so he may not be as known for it as INFINITE H, but you can check out his skills in Cover Girl or watch this awesome clip of INFINITE switching parts for Be Mine. Sungyeol got Hoya and absolutely slayed it. 

INFINITE are a group well known for their synchronised dance skills. And Sungyeol being the tallest member definitely has to try that little bit harder to make sure he stays in line with the rest of them. He may not be a main dancer or be asked to do the dance break, but without him we wouldn’t have the perfect seven members that form INFINITE, and we also wouldn’t have the cool bit at the beginning of The Chaser where Yeol parts the others like the Red Sea… 

Also look how sexy he is…

4. AND EVERYTHING ELSE!!

There are so many reasons to love Sungyeol, and here are a few more things I think are very important:

  • His love of animals! Sungyeol adopted a cute little hairless cat he named Jureumie (from the world for wrinkle), and although she has since moved in with one of Woollim’s staff, we got some super cute times with the two of them. He now has a dog called Aga (Baby). Sungyeol was also amazing with the three puppies INFINITE adopted on Birth of a Family
  • He lowkey does a lot of charity work. Sunggyu outed Sungyeol saying he actually does a lot of charity work, but he never likes to talk about it himself. 
  • His visuals are seriously no joke. Having seen INFINITE up close in real life (and accidentally at the airport one time) I can honestly confirm that Lee Sungyeol is one of the most gorgeous people I have ever seen, even with a facemask on and no makeup. 
  • Sungyeol loves INSPIRITS so much that he’s ready to chase us to the ends of the earth if we cheat on them. He also spoke about how it’s important to him to be able to communicate with all fans, and so he tried extra hard at foreign languages during their first world tour OGS. 
  • His friendships with the other members are very sweet, especially with Sunggyu and Myungsoo. Sunggyu often leans on Sungyeol or latches onto him at airports. And even though Sungyeol and Myungsoo admitted to fighting with each other before, they’re known to be very close. 

I legitimately love Sungyeol so much and it makes me upset when I see negative comments about him or hear that he’s not getting as much attention as he deserves. Please love Lee Sungyeol, because if you’re an INSPIRIT then he definitely already loves you!

Swaying

I really enjoy synchronised dance….The idea here is that human child-the player approaches Papyrus’s puzzle (Dance Dance Revolution thingy basically), and bros wait for them to complete it. And since it’s Dancetale-based…. :D

Papyrus doesn’t even realise he’s swaying too. Power of the rhytm.

Resons to enyjoy HIM’s cover version of Backstreet Boys’ “Larger Than Life” from Gurten 2000:

  • Ville shaking his little bum 
  • Migé and Linde doing some kind of synchronised dance (not really but anyways)
  • HIM enjoying themselves way too much to play “Larger Than Life”
  • HIM PLAYING FREAKING “LARGER THAN LIFE”
Little Mix are a band that need no introduction. As the most popular girl group of the decade, they’ve had sold-out headlines shows across the globe, clocked up a handful of top 10 singles and amassed a fan-base of thousands of loyal guys and girls who would quite literally worship the ground upon which they perform their perfectly synchronised dance routines.

The Kyo Odori started today!

I have to say that I’m a little bit confused myself, because this year’s Kyot Odori was supposed to start on the 2nd of April, but maybe this was a special performance for VIP’s.

From the 2nd to the 17th of April, the Maiko and Geiko will perform their Odori three times a day.

The Kyo Odori draws tourists from all over Japan to Kyoto, and a lot of foreigners come to see it as well!

This is an excerpt from the “Miyagawa Ondo”, the last dance of each performance.

There are 40 Maiko and Geiko on stage performing the dance and they also sing while dancing; I find the sheer number of Geimaiko on stage and their absolutely synchronised dancing very impressive!

Here is the full version of the “Miyagawa Ondo” from a Kyo Odori performance from 2009: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dM8y_TV1ph4

Dancing with BTS

Take my hand. And let’s show the world how we can dance.

So I thought I share with you guys my opinions on how the boys dance with you and my music recommendation:) 


Jin:

A Higher Place by Adam Levine

Bless those days where both you have the whole day together. Just the two of you and its the most blissful thought. I can see you embracing Jin from behind and clinging onto him like a koala while he is cooking in the kitchen just to get his attention. If victorious, he would abandon his cooking, smiling at you as he took his hands in yours, swinging your limbs and hips as he hums. You would giggle lightly at his pure affection and cheekiness because of how easy it was to get him to give in. Playful twirls and spins have made the whole kitchen brighter with the laughter between the two of you. He would be slightly awkward at first, not sure what to do but he would soon loosen up and start waltzing with you all over the house. Dancing with Jin is amusing with him being a little shy but when he warms up, it became something he was fond of, admiring your energy as you prance and danced with him. He would have forgotten the cooking because he has you to adore and be proud of to spend more time with. And secretly, even if he denies it sometimes, he loves dancing with you more than food.

Yoongi:

I Was Made For Loving You by Tori Kelly

Imagine gazing under the stars, or basking under the merciful sun in a meadow or walking on the golden grains of sand while the timid waves gently licked your feet. And Yoongi is there next to you, hand grasped in yours with lazy glassy eyes admiring you while both of you dance as if nobody is watching. Yoongi is definitely a lazy ass but I am pretty sure he is a sucker for slow dancing. Dancing with Yoongi is slow and gentle, head tucked in his chest as he wrapped your waist in one hand and the other in your hand. Yoongi would put his chin on your head seeking comfort in your warmth, kissing your hair and guiding you with his slow footsteps. It may not have been the most exhilarating feeling, no it does not, but I feel that dancing with Yoongi, the warmth in the embrace while both of you aimlessly dance is an exotic yet calming feeling. Its a precious moment between the two of you, indulging both presence without having any spoken words or whatsoever. You can feel the heat of affection through his fingertips and the promise tainted kisses on your forehead. Sure Yoongi is pretty lazy, but for you, he is sucker for romantic things like this.

Hoseok:

What is more amazing than dancing with Hoseok? Dancing with Hoseok is probably one of the greatest highlights of your relationship with him. You have adored his different styles of dancing but when it comes to dancing with him, its like the energy and thrill never lasts. He will be the type to share intimate and cheesy moments where he would put his hands on your hips just to make excuses to touch you, taking all the time in the world swaying sensually to the music. Its not surprising that your dance moves include sharp energetic hip hop moves, a serious kind of fun where both of you would take the dance with determination and profession but once in a while both of you would cheer on each other with goofy smiles and surprised hugs. Its dancing with Hoseok that had you riled up with enthusiasm, eager to explore different kinds of moves everyday and dance both your hearts out. Damn, Hoseok would still be sweaty from dancing but he would be a dork, attacking you with kisses, telling you how amazing you were and that he couldn’t have asked for a better dance partner.

Namjoon:

Breaking Up My Bones by Vinyl Theatre

The title of the song recommendation says it all. I’m kidding! But I feel that when dancing with Namjoon, its a mixture of sugar and spice and everything nice. Its a good kind of mixture, tastes of different dance styles and flavours bursting with craziness and humour. Both you couldn’t dance to save your lives but one thing that both of you shared in common is the sense of freedom that outlined both your personalities. It could be anywhere, in clubs, in the dance studios or at home, both of you would just start popping and locking. You couldn’t care less, but Namjoon would just laugh at your child-like behaviour only to be dragged by you to dance with. Dancing with Namjoon is like a remedy to cure bitterness on cold rainy nights and it surely does work when both of you were just randomly dancing on tables and couches, kitchen counters and chairs pulling out weird moves. Its moments like this that defined joy and delirium, both of you roaring with laughter as he carries you and spins you around. Its the awful yet funny clumsy dancing but both of you couldn’t care because at the end of the day, all remnants of worries are washed and retouched with love.

Jimin:

Chivalry is Dead by Trevor Wesley

If there is one thing that is vibrantly striking between the two of you is your exceptional love for dancing. Dance studios have become your kingdom to escape to, your body has become a language to express speeches of love to each other. You and Jimin adored the fact that dancing has made both of you closer, in fact, it has made the both of you insanely attached. Dancing with Jimin isn’t the romantic way he dances with you across the ballroom but synchronised upbeat dances that left both of you breathless and enthralled at the connection you felt. If you had noticed, you would have seen the admiration in his eyes when he looks at you through the dance studio mirror, awed at your effortless dancing. Dancing with Jimin is like a tasting wild flavours, him teaching you how to different dance moves and styles, making excuses to just touch your hands and smell the strawberry in your hair. Its mostly experimental when dancing with him, learning from each other and improving together. Dance sessions would probably end with dance battles, both of you fooling around and showing off dance moves but Jimin, being the loving boyfriend and dance partner, he would eventually let you win, all in the name of love.

Taehyung:

Check Yes Juliet by We The Kings

Bet you thought dancing with your girlfriends was a hell of a fun but wait till you get a taste of dancing with Taehyung is like. Taehyung can be sensual and awfully frustrating in his dancing, he could be cuddly and lazy, hands clutched in yours as you waltz in the living room. But with you his dancing is the definition of explosive craziness, undeniably humorous and sickeningly romantic. Both of you could be drunk in a club or at home, but boy, both of you are wild when it comes dancing your hearts out, hands waving in the air and not giving a care in the world. The youth is alive and both of you were not going to waste it, hysterical laughter filling the air. Dancing with Taehyung seems such a chaotic suggestion but you have pulled into a jazzy combine breakdancing dance that is not a perfect match at all. At times, when you get lost in your own world, Taehyung was all out taking his chance to admire the way you looked beautiful dancing freely in his vision. It was times like this, both of you were deliriously dancing, singing horrendously at the top of your lungs but Taehyung’s love for you was the only thing that was growing.

Jungkook:

Better Together by Us The Duo

Call me crazy but dancing with Jungkook is probably one of life’s most treasured memories that you guys share on a Sunday morning, clumsy twirls and shy uncoordinated footsteps here and there while both of you were in the kitchen making pancakes. He would be the kind to cherish 9 am mornings with you by making you bubble with giggles, spinning you around in slow twirls and waltzing with you on the kitchen floors with him humming to a favourite song playing from the radio, euphoric against the residence of blissful silence in the air. Deep chuckles bounce of the walls and whimsical giggles erupted when Jungkook tries to steal a kiss as you get lost in the dance. Dancing with Jungkook is something that flourishes with affection through gentle caress on arms and wordless ‘i love yous’ when he squeezes your hands. IIt was just clumsy dancing, both you laughing as you placed your foot on his so that he can guide you swiftly on the kitchen floors but gosh, it was times like this he couldn’t stop himself from falling harder for you.
