Just curious as to how any newbies got started.

    Move through all the layers and don't dwell or surf on the rhythm alone. Move though vocals (if any) base and mid beats and melody. So many dancers just skim along to the melody. A good dancer can pull out parts of the music with her body that bring into sharper focus for the audience the nuances that they may otherwise miss.

    I find the more you listen to the piece of music, the more you hear - especially if you focus on a slightly different aspect of the music each time you listen. Try listening to just the beat one time through, focus on the melody another, or pick a particular instrument to follow. Its amazing what you can pick out and hear when you do. Good luck with your choreography!

    I never write stuff down. It helps tons of people but just confuses me no end. When I create a choreography I first of all choose the piece of music and then I play it again and again and just muck about improvising to it and just letting the music flow and i just dance and dance. Then I can feel which moves go best with each beats and then I chose a handful I like and put them together. I then memorize them by repeating 1 or two moves again and again and again. It is hard but if I write stuff down it makes me count everything out in my head.If you improv lots to it then each time you will remember what you did at a certain point in the music and then you will tend to do that each time until your doing pretty much the same thing again and again.
