The creation of a dance piece focuses on an imaginary dimension and the choreographic process itself is a mystery characterized by constant moments of uncertainty. But this process, where creative thinking occupies a primordial place, is not only mysterious for the choreographer or director but for the entire artistic team and, especially, for the performers. In this study, the creative process is considered as investigation itself, in which the experiences of the performers in a dance creation are analyzed through a questionnaire in which they express their sensations and experiences. The most significant results are that the most positive evaluations are made around the importance of the relationship with the other artistic collaborators, especially with the rest of the interpreters, with the director and with the external eyes
