I’ve been dancing for six years, 3 or 4 times a week. When I was little, I tried every sport out until I found my true passion, dance, at the age of 9. After two years of doing it, I had this emotional roller coaster. I was getting bored during training, and my determination flew away instantly. But even when I was at my lowest, I still did not stop. I just kept going. Eventually, I found joy again and started working twice as hard as I did before. Now I can create and choreograph a piece and know what movement should come after another. It took me two months to put this trio piece together with only two half hours a week to practice and memorise it.
I chose to choreograph a contemporary piece for my Personal Project. Every style has its specifications, movement style and technique. As one of my teachers once said: “ it takes ten years of learning about dance and your body to understand the basic concept of dance technique.” I agree with it 100%. One important thing that I have learned about being a choreographer and going through this huge journey is that you should always know how to transform your vision and ideas into movement and towards your dancers. Most importantly, understand the structure of a performance.
