Study of 'Personal Movement Style' - an independent choreography research project

The term of ‘style’ for this research is an individual expression characterized by a dancer personality and quality inside the technical trained dancing body.

My research is based on an investigation of the proposition that each dancer has their own movement quality which can be seen even within a particular dancing style. Arguably quality is personal and specific to each person even when they perform learned movement. I consider style to be something that can be learnt and embodied through practice, especially when it is focused on one specific dance or movement style. Dance styles require certain movement qualities; but there are some qualities that appear to me to be personal and I am going to investigate the idea of how ‘new personal movement style’ produced in this research.
