A Resource for Performing Artists, Scholars and Audiences.
I am attempting to choreograph something every day for the net year. I first started this in July but was unsuccessful. So I restarted the challenge on September 1, 2011. Join me in my journey; ask questions, submit feedback, share your similar projects.

I've decided to keep a video diary of my thoughts and creative process as I take on this challenge. This is the first time I've done anything this public and I believe the behind the scenes occurrences are just as critical as the choreography shared online. Below are my first three entries. Please do respond if you are moved to. I share my every fearful, apprehensive and proud moment in this public forum because I am hoping someone will say "me too" or "I hear ya."
Follow me here to stay update on the year-long project:

Video Diary Entry 3
This is a great idea and I hope it goes well. What do you want to get out of it in the end? A library of choreography, or a kind of liberation?
Hi Carrol. I apologize for the ridiculously late response, but I haven't been on this site in so long. My ultimate goal is to develop the discipline to work on my craft every single day. I suppose in some ways I do, just by living and drawing from my experiences- but I admire my musician friends who spend their timing shedding: practicing and composing whenever they aren't doing something else (like eating or sleeping). I haven't completed the challenge, but I haven't given up. Thanks for your interest and support. Its helpful and motivating to know people are interested.
