Invisibly busy with the WHD Dance

On the surface, it must seem as though nothing is happening on the WHD Dance project. No updates, no new videos…what’s going on? Behind the scenes, things are busy and progressing quickly.

On Friday, while waiting for a computer repair, I finally dove into one of the sticky problems in this dance choreography – formations for different numbers of dancers. The staging isn’t the same for a pair of dancers as it is for six. Now I have little drawings to guide us. And at the same time, I resolved a niggling little problem with the end of one section, much to my relief. So the choreography is officially finished.

This morning, I have stencilled the dance structure onto t-shirts. I woke up from a dream knowing that this would be a useful teaching aid. You’ll see them in the WHD Dance tutorials, and if you come to a workshop on the tour, you’ll see one in person, too.

And in a few hours from now, the tutorials filming begins. Ayumi, Kana, and Bekah cleared their Monday calendars to help out and I am supremely grateful. With the footage in hand, I will edit like crazy and  have the tutorials online at the end of the week.  Stay tuned!

  1. What a great idea, painting the dance structure on the shirts! I taught a dance for my wedding using online tutorials once, I wish I had thought of something like that! So creative. 🙂
