I have an upcoming audition and I have some songs in mind that I really wanna use 1) Hide and seek by Imogen Heap, 2) Apologize by One Republic, or 3) I am one by Chrisette michele. I wanna be original in the movements because they are all such powerful songs. I just want to see a video of someone dancing a very veery powerful solo or group dance to the first 2 songs. If you know any please please send me a link to them.

can I just suggest that you use different songs, these are like THE typical audition songs, you should find some more recent, "not-yet-discovered" songs.

suggestions: Broken Strings - Nelly Furtado

If you are sticking to those songs, which I have to agree are quite popular, though something new can always be done, a new story can always be told. Anyways, I wouldn't reccommend watching other's choreography to those songs.

Although inspiration is great, and everybody uses it, I would say that it might stay in your head and won't let you choreograph original movements. Look for faysweeper on youtube, if you have never heard of her, and watch some of her group choreographies. I would be surprised if at least one dance didn't move you.

Finally, I would just say choreograph something that means something to you. Move with the music and with your feelings, if that makes sense haha.

I hope this helped a little.
