    Hi Susan! When you use non-Nia routine music in your playlists, are you still dancing Nia choreography to that music, or your own creation? It would be great to know which Nia routine choreography you matched with new music, if that’s the way you do it. Thank you!

    • GREAT question, Caroline! I do both my own choreography and repurpose others, as well. How about this: for upcoming playlists, I’ll make a note if it’s existing choreo or an adaptation. For these three, most of the choreography is original. An exception: for Apollo (Adam Goldstone Edit) by Cujo I used the Ali Click Trance Mix choreography from Fantasia! Thanks for asking!
