A Choreographer's Inspiration


There are times as a choreographer when creating a piece of choreography can have an even greater lasting impact than could have been imagined. One of those such dances for me was “High Hopes”.
When I began the process of creating this competition tap dance, November 19, 2019 my first goal was to reflect the powerful lyrics of the song “High Hopes” (by Panic! At The Disco), and if successful, empower the dancers performing the dance with a positive attitude to believe in themselves, and always have high hopes for their future. Secondly, for the dancers performing to then touch the audience with a positive message that would empower viewers with “High Hopes” to always pursue their dreams.
