Do you choreograph all of your routines for your girls or do you have them do their own? Every year it seems to be a mad rush to get enough floor routines ready for the first meet.

I usually have them pick thier music the first week of practice. I come up with a floor pattern and get them started with choreography (like where the best spot is for gym/acro, etc). They help each other with the rest and then I go back and check them for event requirements, etc. I used to choreograph everything but am finding that letting them share the responsibility is working.

Do you have to do anything to motivate them to get the routines done themselves? I tried having them do their own and/or helping each other but most wouldn't do it and I'd end up doing them all anyway.

When I get them started on their choreography I personally teach them the floor pattern and the very beginning before the first tumbling pass. I have it all written out on a worksheet that I made. They can see on the worksheet exactly what goes where. All they have to do is finish filling out the worksheet and then fit what they made to the music. At the beginning of the season I place LOTS of emphasis on getting floor and beam routines created. They know that if they don't get their routines made they will be in floor purgatory. They are pretty motivated to get it done. We have such a short time between the beginning of the season and the first meet that they know there's no time to dilly-dally. That being said, I monitor the situation closely and make sure they stay on task.

What song was in the choreography during the auditions of So You Think You Can Dance season 5? Like when they don't get straight to vegas and have to do the choreography, what song do they dance too?
