How do you dance a question and answer?

by Keira

What is question and answer?

First reply:

Dear Keira,

When dancing in couples or in groups, there's the possibility of alternating the time to move, and/or establishing a kind of dialogue through movement.

How does it happen? It's very simple. If there are two people dancing, for example, one dancer moves first with some choreographic intention towards the other. The second dancer waits and when the first one has finished, s/he moves with some choreographic intention that replies to the partner's first choreographic message.

That's it, The situation may last or evolve just as a normal conversation and it has the dynamic of choreographic 'questions' and 'answers'.
