It’s the understanding of the choreographic context of a work, that gives dancers the ability to make sense of their actions. Dancers must be encouraged to have a choreographic vision of the work they are part of. The way to do that, is by carefully placing chunks of responsibility in their lap. To put them in situations where they must consider the choreographic whole and make it an integral part of their process. Most of them will resist (except for the ones with choreographic ambitions), but eventually most dancers will grow into that place, once they realise how good it feels to actually understand why you do something and how it is made.
