Choreographing my own solo

by Anonymous
(No location given)

Hi! I am a 12 year old girl and I have been dancing for 10 years. I am thinking about choreographing my own solo instead own one of my teachers doing it. I want to do it to a song that is really powereful with tons of emotion, but it also should relate to a 12 year olds experiences not an adults. Please give me feedback as soon as possible.

Hi there,

For what you wrote, I guess you are asking for ideas about music. There's a very similar thread in this section where I gave an answer to this. I recommend you to read my answer there:

For other matters about choreography, remember all the interesting readings we have for you. Here are some of them:
