  • Mimi N. - ... a combination of learning directly from choreographers, an understanding of the theories and building blocks of choreography, and just doing it.
  • Joana L. - I think that every emerging choreographer should design their own method of learning the craft.
  • Melissa K. - Choreographers first need to learn the basics -- time, space, force. Then tackle more complex issues -- form, style, abstraction, compositional structures, and choreographic devices.
