>Exámenes selectividad inglés Galicia resueltos


pretty girl dancing - colourfulInspiration for a dance might come to you from a piece of music, but it could be an idea, a story, or a photograph. Once you’ve found your inspiration, put on some music and try some movements. Try changing the speed, and introducing pauses. If you have more than one dancer, try different combinations. Then put all the elements together in an imaginative way that expresses your idea.
You’ll need to be creative and determined, with good coordination. You don’t need to be thin; dance teachers are more interested in the size of your talent than your waist. To practise your dance work, you’ll need a studio, a gym or even a squash court! However, your own bedroom or living room can do just as well. You can always practise outside in a local park. It’s free and spacious. A graffiti-covered wall could make the perfect background for a contemporary piece.
Remember: as a dancer your own body is your most important piece of equipment. Learn how to take care of it. It’s essential to warm up to avoid unnecessary injuries. Eat a balanced diet to stay healthy, preferably with the help of a dietician.
The world of dance is incredibly competitive so you’ll need to stand out from the crowd. If you set up your own dance company, you’ll need a good group of people. The choreographer will work with dancers and even DJs or musicians. If you’re taking it seriously, you’ll also need someone for the organization and marketing. Use performance opportunities at school or college. Try to find a number of events so people can see your work as much as possible. Once you have put on your own event – it is possible that you will think about following a career in dance. Good luck!
