Dance Composition Basics picks up where other textbooks leave off, with a bound-in DVD that features professional choreographers and dancers in action. The methods featured in Dance Composition Basics can be applied to a variety of dance styles including ballet, modern, and jazz. Each of the 27 lessons serves as a starting point that encourages novice dancers to embark on their own attempts at choreography with more confidence.

Each lesson includes the following components:

  • One choreographic concept

  • Video documentation of the choreographic concept

  • Vocabulary words

  • Introductory statement

  • Warm-up

  • Structured improvisations

  • Creative choreographic problems

  • Questions for discussion

  • Assessment rubrics


Dance Composition Basics is a practical introduction to the methods and tools used in composing dances that engages students in the process—the preferred method of learning and teaching dance composition today.
