Performance Choreography

February 22, 2021 – Hy-Vee Hall

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR COACHES:

  1. Dancers are required to arrive knowing the choreography for Song 1 & 2 on 2/22! We have a lot to learn, clean and perform in a short amount of time. Come prepared!
  2. There are 4 songs (all pom) for our production this year! Below are the notes for the first two; the final two songs will be taught in person.
  3. We will remain in a large block formation throughout the entire routine.
  4. All group work will be determined on 2/22 in person. When learning the choreography, learn the first group counts.
  5. The first move in song 1 is correct in the notes and not in the video. It is arm switches every count (not every two counts). 
  6. Email Andrea at andrea@isdta.net with any choreography notes questions!
