CHOREOGRAPHY - what was the choreographer trying to say? How did he/she go about saying it? Who was the choreographer? Was there a literal meaning (always check your program to see if there's a paragraph or program note by the choreographer about a particular dance) or was the dance conceptual, i.e., about a mood, emotion, kinesthetic or qualitative feeling. Not all choreography has a literal narrative. Did the choreography make you fee any particular way?
PERFORMERS - Did you enjoy watching them? Were they successful in conveying the choreographer's intentions? Were some more interesting to watch than others?
LIGHTING - How did it affect the way you viewed the work? Did it enhance or detract from the dance? Color, intensity and special effects are all lighting techniques.
COSTUMES - Did the costumes set a time period, a mood, a place or establish characters? Did you feel they were appropriate to the dance?
SETS, SCENERY, PROPS - Were any of these used to establish a time, place or mood?
MUSIC - What type of music or sound was used? Did it enhance the mood or theme of the dance? Remember, not all music is melodic. Did you like it?
