Ground students in the fundamentals of choreography, whilst instilling creativity into their work. A winning combination. Some choreographers teach only the rules of design and encourage students to choreograph with formulas. Others focus purely on creativity. Diane Green blends these approaches: she grounds students in the fundamentals and takes the fear out of creativity. Part I focuses on the process of choreography and how to be creative. Part II introduces students to the elements of movement, helping them to analyze the separate elements before they learn to synthesize them. In Part III, the elements are blended together and music is added. Students also learn how to apply transitions in their work, use formulas to manipulate movement, and explore with props and additional dancers. Finally, in Part IV, students begin planning finished pieces of choreography using methods of refining and forming. The book's dynamic photos illustrate the concepts covered in the book, helping to shape students' understanding and inspire them. "Choreographing From Within" helps students find the unique artist within themselves.
