1. Writers say that the middle section is where the plot thickens (with new characters, sub-storylines, conflicts, villains, etc.) How would you describe the function/s of the middle in choreography?
Your answer
2. What have you found challenging about constructing the middle section of a work?
Your answer
3. What strategies have you used to prevent the middle from meandering and/or going off on tangents? If you have experienced tangential and meandering middles, what was your process for getting the work back on track?
Your answer
4. As choreographers, much of our middle content is about variation and development. In this process, new directional possibilities arise for the work. When faced with these new possibilities, what considerations have helped you decide whether to continue the dance on its original path, or venture down a newly presented path?
Your answer
5. Are there differences between constructing middles for shorter works (under 15 minutes) and larger works (i.e. evening length)? If so, what are those differences for you?
Your answer
6. What words of wisdom and warning would you give for creating a strong middle section?
