Quiz the Coach :: Dance Moves

Rock Out!

Hi, just wondering, where can I find some moves for choreography? I’m the manager and choreographer and I need to know ASAP because we started the band ages ago. We got a name and still haven't got anywhere but 4 songs. We have instruments, sorta, but we don't know any moves or where to practice. Please give advice to us, we trust and believe in you!

It’s exciting to start something new with a group of people, but you have to be patient and organized if you really want to be successful. 4 songs is a great start and you should be very proud of that. What you need to know is that practicing those 4 songs everyday is essential for success.


Band Breakdown


Putting in the dance moves is going to be fun. It’s very difficult too especially because it sounds like you don’t have anyone within the group with any dance experience. Bands that dance usually have a leader who specializes in dancing. Taking dance classes is the best way to get started but that can be very time consuming and expensive.


My advice for your band is to go to a hip-hop dance class. Many community centers have drop-in dance classes that teach choreography with real professional dance teachers running the classes. If the whole band is taking the class, it will be easier to put some of the moves you learn to the music you are singing.


Making up the Moves


You should determine who the best dancer of the group is and let them decide how to choreograph the routines. Dance moves are usually choreographed by one person and then taught to the rest of the group. If no one wants to be the leader, then let everyone make up her own routine for each song you have.


This is a very fun project that can be used for so many different types of events. It’s important to practice your songs and dance routines with lots of repetition. Use video and mirrors to watch yourselves so that you can decide what looks good and what needs to be changed or tweaked to make things work.

    Two different players, overall, I'd say Kobe. Especially considering he's doing pretty good for his age, so he's durable. Plus he's an incredible shooter. Lebron won't last as long and is more of an athletic based player with inferior basketball skills to Kobe.

    Jordan, I wouldn't even consider Lebron until his career is over so we can compare their achievements. So far, I'd say Jordan is the better basketball player, but Lebron is a true athlete, so they are very different on the court.
