In a case where you have seen people too good in choreographing dances, you would need to know that it started from somewhere. The first step always tends to be finding a song and listening to it enough. However, you would need to remember that getting the right song tends to be the hardest or even the easiest part of choreographing. In some instances, you can play a song and love to work on it the first time you hear it. However, there are instances you crawl the entire library but still do not get the best song. Listening to a song with intent tends to be critical after selecting it. You would also need to visualize the song even as you listen especially with the aim of understanding how you will move.
You would also need to make sure that you are actively inspired. You would also need to practice on daily basis for you to become better on daily basis. That way, you would not have to draw your inspiration exclusively from other people. It is essential to know that inspiration does not always come from the dancers you know.
Freestyle tends to be imperative to any successful choreographer. Usage of exact moves in a piece can only make your piece difficult to work on. You would need to let your body move and respond to the music. Make sure to play the entire song and let the body responds to the music. It would also be critical to note that your body tends to naturally moves to some specific types of sounds. Freestyling can help you develop a strong first layer of your choreography.
You would also need to learn how to piece combos to make sure there is a seamless flow. You would need to understand the climax, the instrumental interlude, the breakdown, or any other part of the song. You would need to remember that working on pieces tends to be easier as opposed to working on the entire song. You would also need to remember that simply because a certain combo is not crazy does not mean it does not have potential of looking amazing. Most people tend to think that slow movement in a dance are not as important.
It would also be critical to make sure that your piece is not only perfected in your head but also in the movement of the body. It may be essential to focus on making the pieces look exactly as you choreographed them. You would also need to make some edits but would need to make sure that they are not too many. You would also need to remember that bringing the pieces together to newer people to choreographing can be a little be hard.
