Process of Choreography
1. Inspiration: This is the thing that drives the dancers to keep moving. The topic of the dance will be determined by whatever it is that inspires it. There are many different places where one might get inspiration, some of which are:
a. Photographs of natural settings b. Written works such as poems or stories c. artistic creations
d. One choreographer’s motivation might stem from their own need to express themselves through movement, their fascination with the body’s inherent physical and dynamic possibilities, or their sheer pleasure in dancing. One person’s motivation can be the want to investigate new ways of expressing themselves emotionally via dance.
The instigation will ultimately result in the congregating of the movements. Body movement is essential to the art form of dance. The conclusion that can be drawn from this is that the choreographer chooses moves that are simple for the human body to execute.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the choreographer chooses moves that are simple for the body to do.
2. Choosing Collaborators and Members of Your Team Dance is inherently a kind of collaborative art. Therefore, the first task that falls on the choreographer’s shoulders is to choose dancers and other professionals, such as costumiers and make-up artists, who will aid in the creation of the work that he is producing and who are a good match for the vision he has for it. The choreographer is responsible for putting the moves together, sequencing them in the correct order, and instructing the other dancers on the concept he has devised. There will be times of testing, such as those that will lead to a definitive structure and eventually be packaged for performance.
3. The Final Step; Dancing is a Form of Live Art. The final product must be shown to a group of people before the creative process can be considered to have reached its conclusion. The performance is a crucial point in the process since the reaction of the audience reveals to the choreographer whether or not his or her vision has been properly expressed.
Perspectives on the Dance Scene in Nigeria
If everything goes well with the wheel of dance, it has the potential to be a profitable source of revenue for both the government and the artist. Nigerian society has just come to grips with the possibility that dance might be used as a legitimate means of earning money and conveying the image of the nation to the rest of the globe. Therefore, dance is being taken to another country to bring in revenue for both the nation’s government and the performers there. Dance has been elevated to the status of a noble and valued art form, and as a result, dance artists are now in demand for performances at both public and private venues or events, where they may make a respectable income.
When dances are performed during carnivals, which attract people from all over the globe, the government and the artists who perform them can make money via tourism. This is because the foreign currency is generated. Some examples of these carnivals include the Calabar Carnival, the Eko Carnival, and the Abuja Carnival.
