Beginners have the right to bite

January 2, 2012 Leave a comment

Beginners have the right to shamelessly steal from other dancers. They can take entire moves and routines from other dancers. This allows them practice on a daily level and gain their first experiences and influences. But to progress to higher levels, the beginner should slowly outgrow their initial influences and start coming up with their own style. Biting other people’s styles is not neccesarily a sign of having no creativity , integrityor skill; it may also signify that the dancer is not experienced enough at the moment to tap into his/her creativity.
