This month’s student challenge is focusing on basic, beginner tricks and transitions.
To often I have students say to me ‘I don’t want to do that, it’s to basic’ when we are working on choreography. But the basics can really add to a performance! Some basic, beginner moves are beautiful. They can give you some time to recover and think and sometimes they just naturally fit to the music.
Beginner moves can be combined with more advanced tricks or they can be played with a little to create something that looks unique and individual.
We have our Christmas showcase coming up so I thought December was the perfect time to appreciate the basics that a lot of you don’t do anywhere near often enough.
