Tip of the Day: Remembering Choreography

Amanda's Dance Center Daytona Beach
Q:  Younger dancers tend to have a hard time picking up choreography when learning recital dances.  How can I, as their teacher, make it easier for them to remember?

A:  A fun way to help dancers remember their choreography is to incorporate the choreography into their class warm up.  This helps them see it at least one more time besides when learning the dance at the end of class.

Another way to help them remember choreography,  is to always add steps in sets of 4 or 8.  This helps them stay on the music and keep rhythm.

Another idea is to use a theme step that is repeated every time the chorus plays. This gives the dancers something to get back into, even if they don't remember the rest of the dance, they at least know that. ;)
