New teachers often ask about choreography and how to choreograph for their newest students. Here are a few tips on choreographing for your newest students. These concepts will help build student's confidence, engage parents and let kids learn our amazing sport.
Tip #1 - Keep Formations Simple. Straight lines that are horizontal or vertical are easy for new students to remember and grasp.
Tip #2 - Allow Every Student To Be In The Front Row. Parents love seeing their child be the star and for new students that can be a great opportunity to shine.
Tip #3 - Allow Each Student To Have A Feature. Using a ripple can be an effective way of letting each student shine. In some routines, we allow each student to do their favorite trick as a part of our choreography.
Tip #4 - Use Music Kids Love! Music that kids love will get them excited for their class, the routine and baton twirling.
Tip #5 - Incorporate Dance! Kids love to move and groove. Incorporate simple dance steps (like step-together-step, chasse, kicks) with your twirls.
