footSTEPS is a blog run by a British choreographer who travels the world. Frustrated at not being able to continue my studio practice during the COVID-19 lockdown, I set myself the task of creating a short dance film in every new location that I visit. The films are made using one single shot on the Insta 360 One R, and the dance is a response to my surroundings, or inspired by my experiences in that location.
