Coffee-break exercise: Let's dance


14 May 2021
Choose words to express how you or a character experiences dancing in today's writing exercise

Decide whether you're writing about dancing in front of an audience, or socially, or in a class, or alone.

What music is being played? What clothes or costume is being worn?

Most vitally, what does the experience of this dance feel like?

Write down words and phrases that occur to you.

See how you can assemble these into a piece of writing that describes the sensation of dancing from the inside, not as it might appear to a viewer.
