ABSTRACT

「Dancing 9」the first organized dance survival program in 2013 has been animportant role in public’s reconsideration on the awareness about dance. We needto consider the social ramification and positive role of the first Korean real survivalstyle dance audition program that succeeded with the highest rating of 2.8% whengenerally 1% or above of rating are thought to be successful. This programcontained composition and structure that can be appealing to the public in manyaspects. First of all, with a colorful editing, the storytelling of the participants wasrealistically descriptive and the existence of the Masters served as a truesympathizer and guide. In addition, the binary ideology of survival or elimination,which reflects the infinite competition of the modern day society increased dramatictension and with a physical, quantitative investment the scale and spectacle of anaudition survival was created. Moreover, it acted as a healing process that couldgo near the sincerity of dance. Furthermore, it first acted as a window for discovering new talent andproducing artists. It presented an opportunity to prove that dance is an art that canbe enjoyed by the public. Secondly, it popularized dance and attained diversity indance. It brought a chance to present modern art that was negatively thought of ascryptic or profound and a variety of dance like street dance that embraceindividuality and passion. There can also be points to be corrected in Season2. The show must overcomeediting or bias that can incline artistic evaluation to be commercial. Secondly, theshow must be focused on the dancer’s dance. Special attention needs to be paid tocamera entrance, exit and stage management so there will not be incidents wherethe dancer’s movements are not tracked. Lastly, a more detailed explanation needsAbstractto be given as to why the dancers survive or not so that the public can empathize. Because the competences of the Masters are emphasized in this show, carefuldescription of technical terms or points to consider should be given in fairness. Afair selection process not based on appearance or age can change the shape of howdance is perceived. For the show to be identified with more viewers, a morebeautiful view on the sincerity of dance is needed rather than a ‘devilish editing’. Hopefully, the program can be a stepping stone for many dancers who wish tofollow their dreams and can be an applauded proposal for dancers’ endeavors.
