HSC Dance | Core Composition

Updated: Apr 27, 2021



All I have to do is manipulate my motif ... right? WRONG!


There is much more to Core Composition then just manipulating your motif! If all you are doing is manipulating your motif and creating new movement with no other substance or direction, you are not going to get the marks that you feel like you deserve.


Core Composition and composition in general is one of my favourite things to both engage in myself as a creator and teach. It provides both myself and my students the opportunity to explore their own style, create movement that would normally be seen as 'weird' and provide it will the opportunity to mean something so much more and have fun creating with little guidelines to hold you back.


So, what more is there in composition? Why isn't manipulating the motif enough?<
