This week the Avant + Garde Dance Company is preparing for its first competition. We have been working countless hours including extra rehearsals to ensure that we succeed as a company. One of my favorite parts about choreographing in our company is that we play to each other’s strengths. I believe that individuality is an important characteristic in every dancer. And both of these pieces highlight that beautifully. This Saturday, I was actually given the privilege to choreograph our ending pose for our lyrical piece and I really enjoyed it. My fellow dancers were overwhelmingly supportive and open minded with each pose I created for them. It was a privilege to have the opportunity to show off everyone’s individual talents and to show my own creativity!
