Passing along a great article about choreographing people who can’t dance well.

November 16, 2011

I’m sure we’ve all had shows where it seemed like none of the cast could dance! (sometimes it feels like all the shows)

I’m linking to a page of solid advice on the subject from Lisa Mulcahy.

Her take home points:

Step 1: Determine skill levels during auditions

Step 2: Plan your choreography for rehearsals

Step 3: Hold a cast meeting

Step 4: Put the choreography into motion

Each of these steps gets the full treatment, be sure to read the whole thing!

Thanks, schooltheatre.org for making this kind of material available.
