As fall and the new school year approaches, it’s time to start fresh and come back to the studio feeling rejuvenated and inspired. It’s a great time to set goals for the new year, brainstorm ideas for the upcoming season and find creative ways to keep your students engaged and loving dance! Here are some back-to-dance tips for studio owners and dance teachers.
How Color Affects Choreographers
When you see the color red, what do you think of? Love? Passion? Maybe rage? How about the color blue – how does it make you feel? Or green? White? Colors can inspire emotions and conjure up a certain mood. The combination of color and a visual medium like dance, then, can be a fabulous tool to aid in a choreographer’s message or intent. Choreographers can use color in multiple ways – as a jumping off point of inspiration, for creative lighting to convey a certain feel to the audience, and for costuming for the final touch of their creative expression.
