As a former dancer/choreographer as well as musician, there is much to be said of the creative process or flow as some call it. Where does flow come from? I imagine it is different for every creator. When I hear music, I already feel it in the body and visualize movement almost instantaneously - very visual. But I started in music first as a pianist and added other instruments as I grew older, which helped me put movement to music. They are all very organic for me. So when I am writing and creating music, I feel it deeply from within but I am compelled to want to move and tell a story. So the music begins to emerge, I as a choreographer should feel the phrases as a dancer would dance it. It should also have a life of its own - a beginning, a middle, and an end. So my phrase that I often say to myself is "Feel the Music - now Dance!
