My project is a dance film that I choreographed, danced, and edited illustrating the spike in generation z’s mental health cases due to the rise of technology during their childhood. The film focuses on one girls progressing experience with her mental health and journey to understand herself and not the mask she puts up online. Before starting and forming my project the question that I wanted to answer was, how can I use dance choreography to display a social issue? Being a dancer, I knew that I wanted to base my project on choreography because I have never truly been able to pursue it, even though it has always intrigued me. Not having any experience choreographing I was nervous that I would not enjoy it, but after starting I immediately fell in love with it. I learned a great deal about choreography from some amazing choreographers like Al Blackstone, Billy Griffin, Jake Tribus, and Kaitlynn Edgar that I have had the privilege of being taught by over the course of this project. After seeing their work and choreographing a bit on my own the main thing I learned is to just let movement flow from your body while also not getting too attached to any specific move, song, or idea. After almost a whole school year of research and too many choreography drafts to count I created a dance film that I am very proud of. Originally my goal was to create good choreography, but as the project continued it became filming and editing my work in a way that I felt highlighted the piece. After finishing the choreography I realized how much work the filming and editing would be and how much planning I still had to do. Fortunately, I did enough research to know what I needed to do and get it done. I am extremely happy with the outcome of my project, and if I were able to continue I would probably make a collection of different films like this one. Overall I am proud of myself and I can not wait to show others my work.
