Any movement can be a dance if you pay attention to it. Improvise by yourself and look for inspiration from other dancers. Mix styles and parts to make it your own.
Listen to music that makes you want to move, and start moving! Notice how your movements interact with different parts of the songs. Try putting together some of the pieces below. For example, try moving one part of your body in a large shape, slowly. Challenge yourself to move in every way you can think of.
Space - one place or moving around
Time - slow or fast
Energy - tight or loose
Shape - large or small
Body - one part or many parts
Watch videos of other dancers and try to repeat their movements. Look for inspiration in many kinds of dance such as hip hop, modern, West African, ballet, break dancing, and jazz. Start collecting and practicing your favorite movements that you've seen or created.
Get a few friends together and put on a fun song with a steady tempo and a good beat. Take turns entering the circle and showing your best moves. Play off of each other's energy and movements to try new things. Make it harder by focusing on just one part of your body to move during each turn.
Planning a dance is called choreographing. Try choreographing a short solo dance by putting together some of your favorite movements. Choose a variety of different movements, and pay attention to how you want the parts to fit together. Pick a song that matches the energy you want for your dance.
Try practicing in front of a mirror to see how you'd look to an audience.
Make connections across different art forms. How could your dance be inspired by spoken word poetry, visual arts, or different kinds of music?
