There are many ways to approach choreography, but before approaching it, one must know what elements or ingredients to work with, within this art . What makes up a Dance? How can you break down this artform? Here are the dynamics that compose this wonderful form of moving called “Dance“.
Sound ~ instruments, sythetic creations, natural beats, anything that pleasantly changes the vibrations in the air
Body ~ so many parts to move to make a picture or story, arms legs head neck torso knees ankles wrists fingers…
Space ~ the limiting or expansive room between your body and possible paths to move
Time ~ the length of counts or freestyling
Strength ~ the range between how hard or soft a movement is made
Now we are ready to play with these dynamics in choreography!
