Next time you’re feeling bored with your choreography, try these classic “games” with your dancers. They’ll enliven a stale choreographic process, give your dancers ownership of the movement material, and provide some important learning experiences, too!
Jenn Romano works with high school dance students and in two after school dance programs for at risk youth. Jenn’s Top Three comes directly from her work, teaching dance composition in New Mexico high schools. She uses these “games” to practice improvisational skills as well develop student-generated choreography in her classes.
