Today I want to begin to cover THE CREATIVE PROCESS for the liturgical dancer.
1. First step - Pray! God will open up your creative avenue so that you will be receptive to HIS message. Jeremiah 33:3 says- "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’NIV
Stuck and don't know what to do next? Pray! As liturgical dancers it is our responsibility to go to The Father and receive the dances from heaven.
2. Second step - Decide on the intent and purpose of the message. There are many directions that you can choose to create your chorepgraphy after you receive the message.
a. Begin with music and create movement to interpret the words.
b. Begin with the message and find music and movement to visually tell it.
c. Begin with movement and find the message and music to compliment it.
d. Find a biblical story and research it. Expand upon it and tell the story.
e. Find the mantle and or vision of your church or ministry and from that starting place create dances that express or convey that purpose. It is our job to support and reiterate the purpose of our church home and pastor.
You must have a place of motivation when you choreograph, but you can always alter or adjust as needed through the process. Habakkak 2:2 "Write the vision and make it plain so the runner may run with it."
The Creative Process continues tomorrow!
