Up till now, the three hip hop choreographers I’ve learned from are all fantastic. However, I’ve noticed a common problem among them – they do not explicitly count the beat. And even when they try to, sometimes they are not too precise – getting the lyrics’ timing wrong and such.
I don’t know whether it’s supposed to be a common problem among most hip hop choreographers; I would understand if getting the feel instead of the timing is more important, but to me I think it is best to perfect the choreography technically first before going deeper into the emotions and such. And am I in a position to judge the timing? The choreography is not done by me, and I probably might be wrong – but sometimes I just get very frustrated over things that are not defined precisely.
And if I go into choreographing, would this happen to me too?
