Something I have been struggling with the last few days is when does being influenced by someone fall into copying them??
Obviously there are dancers I admire and love and a certain move i may use of theirs or do a regular move in their style sometimes on purpose and sometimes I am not even aware I am doing it.
2 people made comments to me after my casino performance and said 'gosh you can tell your a student of such and such or gosh you can tell who influences you'
This obviously is a big compliment but equally does that mean I was in some way without realising completely mimicking them???
So how can you appear influenced by someone before you end up copying them??
