“For a jazz choreographer, fluency in jazz movement is as important as grammar and a vocabulary of words are for a writer. For writers, picking and choosing the appropriate word for the appropriate occasion is a sometimes conscious, sometimes unconscious, search into their past experiences with language:words, phrases, paragraphs, stories, literature, discourses and English teachers.” – Jazz Dance Today
As we are wrapping up the final presentations of the Poetry in Motion Choreography Projects I wanted to congratulate all of you. I know that choreographing a dance without music and instead based on poetry was a somewhat daunting task, but I am incredibly proud of the work you all created.
