To learn a dance routine, we can simply study and mimic each motion to the best of our ability. This is important to make the performance both authentic and in sync with the other dancers and the music.To understand a choreography however, we can study the history behind its creation, the creator itself and therethrough learn the meaning. And then let the same process and emotion unfold in us to its own expression.Then we must still fine tune those motions. Repeat, rehearse and practice. Hopefully with joy!
(For those of you who know the Isadora Duncan style, I do see two things that needs to change, but at the same time, this became a new motion.)
