Choreographer Wayne McGregor: Dance, Physical Thinking & Misbehaving Beautifully

We all use our body on a daily basis, and yet few of us think about our physicality the way Wayne McGregor does. He demonstrates how a choreographer communicates ideas to an audience, working with two dancers to build phrases of dance, live and unscripted, on the TEDGlobal stage.

A great addition to our collection of Dance related TED Talks. Don't miss the follow up post on the TED blog where he gives tips for thinking like a dancer. Below you can see McGregor and DJ/Producer Mark Ronson discuss their unique collaboration at Royal Ballet LIVE - a day of live streamed events from The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.

And lastly, support dance and dancers, go see live dance.
