It’s been a crazy day—seven hours of school followed by six hours of dance—and you’re finally sitting down at your computer. It’s go time.

In his new video, “The Lonely Writer,” Harry shows us what it would look like to brainstorm for a paper (in this case a short story) through dance. It’s goofy, creative and fun—everything we’ve come to expect from this L.A. dance star. Check it out:

Now please excuse us while we try out this brainstorming method for the next issue of Dance Spirit!
