Choreography Period Kicks Off Today!

The time has finally arrived!  Choreography season can begin.  Hopefully (dancers) you’re getting music cuts delivered to your email like Christmas morning 🙂  I love being able to send that out and get the dreams rolling.  This is when the magic gets made, new ideas get tried (for better or worse), and that section you’re about to dread cleaning come January will be written into the routine.  There are a ton of new rules to consider carefully when creating your masterpiece for the year – so check out that rules book if you have questions.  The PDF and viewer versions of the rules can of course be found under the resources tab here at mnhsdanceteam.com


I love how choreography is a time to let movements flow, live, and be organic – because you’re not perfecting, learning, or polishing.  It’s just a time to love dancing and make a few mistakes along the way.  Enjoy the process!  Right now, we’re all equal, you’re not sick of your song, and anything is possible.  Best time of year is finally here-  Have fun!
