Tip 1: Understand that it will pass - ride the wave
It feels like that is it, no more creative juice, no ideas flowing, thats it, start again. Nothing left, world is coming to an end - relax. It WILL pass.
Think of it like a wave - some waves are big, some are small, but if you ride it you will reach the sure and have a fun time doing it if you do it right.
If you beat yourself up when this happens all you do is stay in the same place - nothing productive will come from it.
We are only human. But, think of your body like a car, and just like a car that needs fuel for a long journey - every now and again you need to let the car be, rest, refuel and come back and it is fine.
Understand it may happen
Understand it will stop
Tip 2: Watch dance clips/movies
Try watching old clips that used to inspire you
Search for recent competition clips
Search for any new dance clips
Watch dance movies that you love
Tip 3: Search for new music
Sometimes it can be the music that you listen to that doesn't help the flow of creation and inspiration
Listen to music from a genre that you don't normally listen to
Listen to tracks that you know you love
Take your music somewhere and go on a bus ride/walk/run - get out of the house
