How to make a dance routine for kids
How To Choreograph A Dance Routine In 6 Simple Steps
Are you wondering how to choreograph a dance routine? Or if you even can???
The answer is YES, YOU CAN! And you totally should.
Choreographing isn't just for professional dancers with tons of clout. It's a skill that anyone can learn with a little practice and inspiration. Not sure how to start? Just follow this handy 6-step guide and start creating!
Finding the right song could be the easiest or hardest part of choreographing.
Sometimes, you hear a song for the first time and you know, you just KNOW, that it's the one.
Other times, you browse through your entire iTunes library, SoundCloud dashboard, Spotify playlists, and still don't feel anything.
But once you have a song and pick out the section you want to choreograph to, listen to it...A LOT. And don’t just listen – listen with intent.
Look up the lyrics to see how you relate to the meaning of the song. Discover hidden hi-hats and riffs that you can highlight.
Note the "pathways" for movement you want to take – do you want to hit a certain lyric? Or that dope double bass? Visualize ideas as you listen.
You don't need to come up with concrete moves, but understand how you wanna move. And if you need to cut your music, do that first.
Having to wait or skip around to different parts of the song can interrupt the process.
Some tips for finding songs: Best Ways For Dancers To Find New Music
Yes, you can watch videos from your favorite choreographers and remix their routines, but to make something unique to you, try drawing inspiration from your own life and the culture around you.
Read thought-provoking books, watch beautifully shot movies, check out MET Gala costumes, and visit cool museums!
All forms of art can inspire and fuel your art. When you see something inspiring, write it down so you can come back to those ideas later.
Even something simple like an interesting conversation with a friend can turn into a dance choreography idea or a new dance move.
Already feeling inspired? Watch this video to learn how to turn those ideas and concepts into dance moves!
Freestyling doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re going to be using those exact moves in your piece. In fact, you probably won’t even remember a lot of what you did!
The point is to let your body respond to the music. Play the whole song and let yourself move. Notice how you naturally groove to certain sounds.
This will be the first "layer" in your choreography. You can then try variations or build more intricate movements on top of it.

And if you put on a song you really love, but still can't come up with any moves, check out this video!
Clay gives you tips for creating unique movements, even when you think you have choreo block.
You probably decided to choreograph to the song because you thought certain sections would look dope on the body.
Is it a climax? A breakdown? An instrumental interlude?
Whatever it is, start with that part. You don’t have to choreograph chronologically from beginning to end.
Start with the chunks that come easier, then build the rest of the choreography around it.
After you've choreographed your favorite chunks, make sure to give some love to those in-between sections!
Just because it’s not a crazy beat combo doesn’t mean it doesn’t have potential to look amazing.
Sometimes it’s those slower moments that are the most memorable. Check out this piece from Galen – it's all about her presence and demeanor.
Even her simple movements are engaging because she's filling those calmer moments with presence, before she goes off in a powerful combo.
A lot of us have the problem of making choreography that looks good in our heads... But not on our bodies. At that point, you just gotta train yourself.
Some refer to this as “cleaning” or “setting,” which involves perfecting certain pictures you make with your body, looking at pathways between points, or drilling quick combinations.
Check out this article to learn more about the cleaning process: How To Execute Choreography Better By Utilizing Your Body With Carlo Darang (Choreo Cookies)
And remember: How you choreograph will be how the piece looks. So when you choreograph a dance, do the moves full out.
For example, if you want a plié somewhere, really bend those knees. Let body rolls go all the way through your body. If you’re doing floorwork – get on the floor!
It's not going to magically look amazing when you perform on stage or in front of the camera. Make it amazing as you're making it.
Watch this video to learn more about dancing full-out, in every moment.
There are probably moments within your piece that feel perfect to you. Don’t change those.
But the piece as a whole is probably a bit rough around the edges, especially if this is your first time choreographing.
As novelist Ernest Hemingway once said, “The first draft of anything is sh*t.”
So don’t worry if it’s not exactly what you wanted it to be. You can work your way there!
Do this by trying out variations of movements, scrapping some sections, changing directions, or adding floorwork – whatever you feel is necessary to “edit” the piece.
And honestly? That’s what makes creating so fun – trying things. Saying “Nope, not that,” or “YES oh my god, it worked!”
It’s supposed to take multiple drafts! Just keep editing until you’re done.
Of course, if you're a perfectionist, you might feel like your piece is never finished, but you gotta draw the line at some point.
While it’s awesome to try to keep improving your piece, there comes a point where you have to say “This is it. It's ready."
It's not about feeling like your piece is perfect. It's about making something that you feel proud to say you made. So when you're done, let it be.
Give yourself a pat on the back. Record the piece and share it with us via our STEEZY Studio members Facebook Group!

How To Help Your Kids Practice Dancing At Home? |
So what are the best ways to convince your children to get up and work on their dance steps? Here are 8 ideas for dance mums and dads.
1. Keep the practices short 10-15 minutes once or twice per day.
This will keep them focused and happy. I’m sure you wouldn’t necessarily feel like practicing for 1-2 hours in the evening after a long day at work either. Use a stopwatch and when it’s time to end, don’t push your child to practice longer (unless they want it). Also, it’s more likely that you as a parent will stay focused on practice when it’s only 10-15 minutes long.
2. What to practice?
Children need a clear structure for each practice.
Ask your teacher what dances your child knows and schedule them accordingly. So when it’s practice time, you know whether to do cha cha cha, slow waltz or tango.
When you sit in front of your child, ask them to practice one of them first without music, then with music.
3. Choose the best times
Your children need to develop a routine. We all like routines and schedules so we know how to prepare for it and what to expect. If you choose a single practice per day, then try 10 minutes before school. Yes, it may be hectic in the mornings, but it works great for many students as they have more energy (also most competitions happen early in the mornings so good to mimic that feeling).
4. Choose days of practices
We would love our children to practice every single day, but it may not be possible. However, if you keep practices short and fun, they may well want it everyday.
Try choosing 3-4 days in the week to start e.g. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Mark them in a calendar and keep it in your child’s room so they can see it too.
Remember- DO NOT bargain with practice times. They may say- I will practice double tomorrow, but in reality it’s unlikely to happen.
5. Choose the right rewards/treats
Oh yes they do work wonders! But what treats should you use? Anything that your child likes the most e.g.
10 extra minutes staying late on Saturday eve
extra time on an iPad, PlayStation or TV
- My Dance Journal™
There is one thing that every dancing child loves- SPARKLES! Get a point system and for every practice give them points. Once they reach a certain point score, they will earn, for example, 10 small crystals. They can glue them on their dancing top, bracelet or a school backpack. When other children see it, your child will be beaming with pride that they have all these sparkles.
The younger the child, the more important it is to have short goals they can achieve fast and see results.
6. Staying inspired by watching
We live in the era of iPhones and computers so let’s use them to our little dancer’s advantage. Once per week sit down with your child and watch on YouTube dance competitions of children their age. This will help to motivate them- whether by fancy choreographies, dresses or make up.
7. Speaking of make-up
Every dancing girl loves make up so let them use it.
Once per week have a practice that will imitate a competition. Put dancing music on at home, and let your child use your lipstick just for the duration of practice.
This is so much fun for them because they will feel like older dancers. They will always look forward to that one practice session.
Dancing shoes should always be in sight so whenever your child wants to put them on, they can. Practicing in dance shoes will give them a feel they are dancing properly rather than just jumping around in socks. Also, your child will be reminded of the need to practice every time they look at their shoes.
I hope these ideas will help you create your own home practices. It will take some time to find what works best for your child. If you stay creative and patient, you will start noticing big changes in your child’s dancing faster than you think.
Just remember that children learn at different pace so make sure that you celebrate with them every little thing they achieve even though they may be just baby steps.
Be encouraging, not pushy.

The specifics of creating and staging a children's choreographic number

The specifics of creating and staging a children's choreographic number
Dancing - one of the favorite and popular art forms - provides ample opportunities in the physical, aesthetic and ethical education of children. When creating a repertoire for children, the main criteria are the content of the dance, its compliance with modern tasks of aesthetic education and the age characteristics of children. The repertoire should instill love and respect for the dance culture of other peoples, humane moral feelings inherent in the Russian choreographic school. Acquaintance with the elements of classical, folk, historical and household ᅟ modern dance and the acquisition of special skills and abilities in the course of classes to develop artistic taste in students, bring nobility and grace of performance to them, and form a culture.
To master dance science, you need to learn the ABC of classical dance - this will give a performing culture that is unthinkable without any kind of dance. Folk dance is one of the means of national, educational and patriotic education of schoolchildren. Folk dance, as a rule, in a major key, develops positive emotions in children, a sense of the joy of being, enriches the dance experience with a variety of rhythms and plasticity.
Of particular interest to children is the work on story dances, the themes of which are close and understandable to children, the themes of which are close and understandable to children, borrowed from the surrounding reality or from fairy tales of the world around. A special place is occupied by dance games, dances with objects. And the more organically the dance is connected with the familiar children's game, the warmer it is perceived by the audience. Thematic dances and choreographic suites are an integral part of the repertoire.
- Folk stage dance - requires the director to have a deep knowledge of folklore, prevailing themes and plots, manner of performance, compositional features.
- Story dance. School, courtyard themes are used, as well as folk tales and epics.
- Dances from children's ballets and operas - for more advanced groups.
When staging work, it is very important to take into account the age characteristics of the participants, which are divided into three groups: 1) junior, 2) middle.
When organizing the work, it is very important to take into account the age characteristics of the participants, which are divided into three groups: 1) junior, 2) middle, 3) senior.
Physical activity depends on the development of the musculoskeletal system (for example, the younger group has soft bones), intensity and duration - on the age and degree of preparation of students (choreographic school, children's team in the palace of culture, circle at school).
The basis of the repertoire for children should be dances of a playful nature, reflecting their main interests, performances of children's songs, fairy tales, performances of school subjects, as well as folk dances based on simple dance elements and simple compositions. Much attention should be paid to teaching folk dances, as well as dances based on sports movements (dances with ribbons, balls, hoops, etc.). You should also pay attention to ballroom dancing.
It is necessary to arouse genuine interest in children's activities, engage them in active creativity, and this can be achieved only by setting clear long-term goals for them. The production work in this respect is very productive. Children love it, treat it with great interest, actively engage in it, fantasize freely, in general, work with great enthusiasm and dedication.
To stage a dance for preschool children, it is necessary to take into account the age and psychological characteristics of little artists.
1The first step to staging a children's dance is teaching children rhythm (But we remember that the subject of rhythm is music and movement!), thereby developing gross motor skills, coordination, muscle memory, a sense of rhythm, orientation in space. Physiologists have long proven that movement closely interacts with memory, speech, learning, emotions and stimulates the brain. Children's dance helps to develop the child's imagination, his ability to improvise. Musical and rhythmic education is an important part of the process of forming a harmonious personality, making children open, sociable.
Rhythm will allow the child to feel the strong beat, stop during a pause and understand when the musical etude ends.

“We can see choreographic works that are made “to the music”, vol. ᅟ e.

Working with children means giving your child your life and spiritual experience every hour, every day, from year to year, shaping the personality of our society - a person who is comprehensively and harmoniously developed.
Choreographers should always be aware of their creative duty, help in the complex process of forming a beautiful, comprehensively developed personality.
Choreographer is not an easy profession. A choreographer working with children is a profession that is doubly difficult. After all, in addition to the usual difficulties that always accompany the composition of the dance, in addition to educational tasks, the teacher must skillfully understand the age characteristics of his artists.
Choreographic Association "Dent" was created in 1999 year. The team became a multiple laureate and diploma winner of various dance competitions. Children begin to study from an early age (from 3.5 years old) at the preparatory (paid) department of "Dance", from where students move to the budgetary groups of the "Dance Choreographic Association", starting from school age.
However, we also welcome those who come to us even without special training and at an older age. And if you have the preparation, then we will invite you to the group of the appropriate level of dance skills.
The choreographic association "Dance" works on the following programs: "Beginning", "First Steps", "Exercise".
The First Steps program
has an artistic orientation and a general cultural level of development.
Under the program "First Steps" - I teach children to take the first step into the dance life. This program allows the child to understand what dance is, to get in touch with the joys and difficulties of dance mastery and decide for themselves what the future path will be in this complex dance world. The program is designed for 2 years. Implemented for students from 6 (schoolchildren) to 9years, boys and girls showing interest in choreographic art. Children master the following disciplines: rhythm, staging and rehearsal activities.
Having mastered the "First Steps" program, the child will be able to choose the dance direction in which he wants to improve in the future. If the results of mastering the program are high, and the desire to continue practicing is strong, then the young dancer will be transferred to the next group and continue training under the Exercise program.
The Beginning program
is for children gifted in choreography.
Has an artistic orientation and a basic level of development.
Implemented for students from 6 (schoolchildren) to 9 years old, boys and girls.
This program is for children who want to connect their lives with dancing. Within 2 years we improve the student's ballet data, develop rhythmic abilities, coordination, dance technique. In the training program: rhythmics, parterre gymnastics (exercises on the floor, giving preparation for learning classical dance), children's dance.
Students in this program have high requirements for performance skills. Students not only study in the classroom, attend a master class of leading experts in the field of choreography, but also actively participate in the concert and competitive activities of the group. Upon completion of training under this program, children are enrolled in a group that is engaged in the "Exercise" program.
The Exercise program
has an artistic orientation and an in-depth level of development.
This program accepts children from the age of 8 who have a choreographic basic training (according to the "Beginning" and "First Steps" programs, or who have the necessary skills and have passed the preliminary selection). The implementation period is 5 years. The Exercise program is aimed at mastering classical, folk, folk stage dances. Children studying under this program participate in a variety of concert and competitive activities of the group. Learn acting and make-up techniques. Learn the basic rules for staging dance numbers. They actively attend master classes of leading experts in the field of choreography. Graduates continue their studies in colleges and universities in the choreographic profile.
“..In order not to break down in the knowledge of dance art, you must first fall in love with dance…”
will master both the initial rhythmic training, and gymnastic exercises, and classical dance, and folk, and elements of children's and variety dances. If these terms do not mean much to you, then I will try to orient you in the complex world of dance styles:
- Rhythm is the first step in dance training. In these lessons we will study the rhythmic pattern of music, develop the ability to move in the right rhythm. Learn elementary dance skills (the simplest dance elements), develop ballet skills (stretching, flexibility).
- Gymnastics is a mandatory set of exercises that allows you to prepare the body of the future dancer and dancer for more complex dance movements.
- Children's dance is a choreography for children and about children. These are the same children's dances that you want to see at primary school age, for example, the dance of gnomes, the dance of flowers, the dance of crumbs, the dance of dolls.
- Classical Dance is an ABC to help students understand and control their bodies. These are classes at the ballet barre and in the middle of the hall ... (Do you remember the ballet "Swan Lake" and "Giselle"? This is classical dance).
- Folk dance - these are classes at the barre and in the middle based on classical dance exercises, but in a folk style. (Ensembles "Birch", "Gzhel", Moiseev's ensemble).
- Modern pop trends are the dances that we see in concerts of pop performers, in musicals, at competitions, etc. (The show ballet "Todes" works in this style).
Everyone will dance, but the best students are invited to join the ensemble! And then you will know the life of real artists! It is very honorable and fun, but very responsible and not easy! Many rehearsals and performances are waiting for those who get into the ensemble! These are performances at various venues in St. Petersburg and beyond, participation in competitions and festivals. In concerts of various levels in costumes and make-up! Students of the choreographic association "Dance" have a decent training and can continue their education in specialized dance colleges and universities.
