Fresh Choreography Ideas for Recitals
I think one of the hardest things to do year after year as a teacher is to come up with fresh and innovative choreography for recitals and competitions. It is key to that the choreography appeals to audiences who might not be dancers (like parents), appeals to dancers, challenges your students, pleases judges, and is different from last year! I just have to share this choreographer's work with you, as she has some very entertaining and creative pieces, that could give you the inspiration you need to tackle the 15 dances you have to choreograph for this year's recital!
I recently discovered her on YouTube as I was desperately searching for inspiration of my own, and found tons of her work there. Introducing...Kate Jablonski! She has her own dance company, Beyond Words, located in Westmont, Illinois. Here's her website with a video gallery of her best work. May you also be inspired!
