I had a blast at the Indiana High School Dance Team Association’s Fall Conference! Thanks so much to their board for having me. I did a presentation on successful dance team coaching and maximizing routines. I also attended sessions by other presenters and learned a lot as well! A special shoutout goes to the coaches who attended my session! You are all doing such a great job and I wish you the best this year. As promised, here are the handouts, a PDF of the Powerpoint, and the videos we didn’t have time to watch. I picked some high scoring routines from Missouri teams that I’m hoping will be a good representation of what we talked about: dancing through transitions, utilizing effective formations, creating visuals (shapes and pictures), having a story arc that goes up and down and up and down, addressing all “planes” of the performance area, etc.
It was a pleasure spending time with you! I look forward to seeing you all again soon!
