“Choreography is simple than you think. Just go and do, and don’t think so much about it. Just make something interesting.” – George Balanchine
In a recent accountability call that I was in, I said I wanted to set some ambitious goals for the next week and put my goals into my friends’ hands.
Some things I got:
- Go to every grocery store and get all of the different pop tarts
- Get not one but two dogs
- Choreograph a dance
Given the fact that I am allergic to pop tarts and about to be on a plane, the first two options were not even remotely considered.
Which left me with choreographing a dance, I didn’t think this would be too difficult but challenging for sure especially since I haven’t dance in a hot minute.
So Saturday morning I headed out to the basketball court and tried to come up with something. It was during this time that I realized that I have never choreographed something by myself before.
Instantly the challenge level went up exponentially.
In the end, I created something that could potentially resemble a dance. It is something that I want to try again and start building up/using that muscle again.
If there is something that you’ve either wanted to try for a long time or that you used to do that you want to get back into, just go for it. You never know what you could learn.
