A 3-Minute Solo Performance in 6 Steps by Laurie Van Wieren: Here is one way to make a solo. This is for folks who have always wanted to make their own solo but were afraid to ask. There are many ways to make a dance. These steps are taken from some of the things that I do to build material when I am working on a dance. I often work in my living room. Now that we are all home and sometimes alone- you can give this a try while no one is looking. Or you can perform it for your family like we did when we were kids. Or if you want share it on instagram @soovac
You will need: A timer, Pen or pencil, Notebook or paper, A space to work within. any size will do, indoors or outsize (as long as you are within 6Ft of any other person at all times)
