I've been choreographing a lot lately, and I'm running out of steps to use. If someone could give me names of steps to use, it would be much appreciated. :)

Hi there!

Instead of giving you names of dancing steps, I recommend you to start creating your own moves... I mean moves that don't have a name yet, moves that are not codified or renowned steps, as you say.

That's a great solution to avoid being stumped while choreographing!

Visit our page about dance composition and read it to have ideas for a start:

Don't be afraid to be creative with your body and movement. Remember that that's the way the steps you already know where created by another dancer, some when in the past.

Warm regards,
