The evolution of dance

with 2 comments

Noémie Lafrance

  1. Improvise moving to the music and come up with an eight-count phrase. (In dance, a phrase is a short series of moves that can be repeated.)
  2. When you find a phrase you like, loop (repeat) it.
  3. When you see someone else with a stronger phrase, copy it.
  4. When everyone is doing the same phrase, the exercise is over.

—Dance exercise attributed by David Byrne to Noémie Lafrance
