My Video Choreography Challenge Week 1
As promised here is my choreography challenge for week 1. The goal for week one was to pick 10 moves from my favorite videos on youtube and put them into a piece. It ended up more modern fusion then I had planned, but I really liked it at the end.
And here is what I did to make it: At the start of each description is a time marked in bold this is for the timing of that move in my video above.
0:20 The first moved I used was from Tjarda. She is a Dutch dancer who excels at fusion. She does this handstand leg move at 1:15 in this video.
0:30, 1:15 The next move is from Urban Tribal Company. I am using a turn that they do at 1:07. I also use a table-top-lean done at 2:43.
0:37, 1:20 I used two moves from the amazing Kami Liddle. I loved her chest-step-touch combo at 1;05 and her shoulder pops into a back bend at 3:57.
0:49, 2:47 Unmata has some wonderful steps. I used there quick paddle-turns at 0:53 and their swaying hips into jazz style pose at 2:03.
1:06 This move is a wonderful turn from famous Korean dancer Jinhee Kim. She end her first dance with it at 1:55.
2:05 There is a wonderful a back bend floor combo from the Belly Dance Superstars. It is a duet of Zoe Jakes & Elizabeth Strong. Check out the move at 0:40.
2:33 I complete the collection by using a step from Indigo (Rachel Brice’s Troupe). It is a hip, turn and shimmy combo found at 1:09.
Reflections: This challenge is very good for expanding your movement base. I find that every piece I do always seems to have the same 5 steps and this process has helped me step out of that. Try the challenge. Let me know how it goes for you.
