I don’t know how other choreographers create new work, but I’m either 1) dancing in my head 2) dancing in my apartment or 3) doodling dancing stick figures in a notebook. The main photo will look familiar to anyone who has seen me choreograph a dance. It’s totally stick figure city! Not only are they adorable, they are the only way I can remember moves and transitions!
Generally to create a dance, I’ll do some freestyle movement and then record the best results (via stick figures, of course). I’m still in the process of taking down what I want to use in my final dances. Perhaps I’ll create a montage video of my practice times in the near future.
Until next time,
