I found the new Sia song, elastic heart and knew right away that I wanted to dance to it. What makes a song “dance worthy”? I’m not sure there’s a concrete answer to that question. I have such eclectic taste in music, which you may have noticed given my choices on a weekly basis…but it’s a song that sticks in my head, first and foremost. Then, it’s a dance that I can see animations working with. I figure skated in RL, so I am familiar with choreography for actual 2 legged human life forms and I need to be able to visualize it before I can make it work. There have been songs I’ve loved, but they don’t quite work in SL, at least not yet. Animations have come so far in so short a time, who knows what may be possible next year?? The hardest part for me is the set. Sometimes it comes to me in a flash and I know exactly what I want to do, but sometimes it’s harder. When I’m not sure of the set, I do the dance first, when I see the set, I do that first and then the dance. I don’t have a methodical way to work a dance….I just go where the moment and movement take me.
