    You can see video examples of our choreography on our Welcome page--check it out!

    Recommended skills include single/double pirouettes, split leaps (also called straight leaps or jetés in ballet), and splits.

    Our Dance technique page has some video links with helpful reminders and breakdown of these skills.

    Tryout routine is around twelve to sixteen 8 counts (roughly 45-60 seconds) of intermediate level choreography. 

    The last two 8 counts of the music is for dancers to choreograph themselves, showing off technical skills and flexibility.  Dancers who want to prepare ahead of time can come to tryout clinics with your two 8 counts already prepared--just choreograph something that can fit most any pop song!
