3. In her article, "Collaborating with Dancers," Hope Mohr talks about a spectrum of collaboration which spans from the "old-school genius" model, where "creativity falls almost exclusively to the choreographer," to a more mutualistic model, where choreographers "rely heavily on the dancers with whom they work not only to generate vocabulary, but also to problem-solve at every point in the creative process." As a choreographer, how have you traversed this spectrum?

4. Along this spectrum, what factors have influenced how you utilize your dancers in the choreographic process?
