Choreography that works behind a screen/backlighting

by ChaiseCava

I need to create a choreographed piece that will be performed with a screen with back lighting. It needs to really emphasize poses quickly on the snare drum. Looking for mainly floor poses. If anyone could point me to good videos or has any insight, that would be great. The dance is meant to be sensual and strong. It is for an alternative R&B song.
