DANCE FOR ACTORS
Out of this I quickly identified that celebrities' self-esteem is at an all time low when putting themselves in a dance scene. With this in mind, I used patience and an overall easy to follow direction to determine what is possible and what gives them confidence to perform.
It’s great choreographing dance for tv and film. However the reality is that most of the work is simpler movement or short scenes with a hint of dance. Harbour Dance gave me the opportunity to teach beginner adults during the beginning of my career. It also became evident that I had a special talent for teaching actors who have zero experience in dance.
WHAT STYLES OF CHOREOGRAPHY CAN I DO, YOU ASK?
You’d laugh at my resumé if I described the types of “moves” I have choreographed for movie/TV scenes. I’m trained in jazz, contemporary, tap, hip hop and musical theatre. To give you a sampling to what I am referring, here is a list of those genres that have made me chuckle:
Martial Arts Jazz
*can’t wait to see what I do next…
Country Line Dancing
The New Zealand Haka
Dirty Dancing gone wrong (my personal fav)
