SIX EASY STEPS TO CREATE YOUR WINNING ROUTINE FOR GRADINGS AND COMPETITIONS
If you are new to routines then think 4 – 6 weeks minimum for practice and preparation
Mental and physical preparation is most important
Obviously this varies from person to person but as guide!
If you are rushed, your nerves will be harder to control simply because you haven’t given yourself enough time to prepare!!
WHAT’S YOUR STORY OR THEME?
Who is your character?
What is your message?
What will you be wearing?
MUSIC YOUR FRIEND AND MOTIVATOR
Pick your own music
Yes this might mean going through YouTube for hours and hours!!
Pick your tempo, words, style, length, mix
Did you know a winning song has all the senses in it in the lyrics - touch smell, taste, hear, see
MAKE YOUR MOVE
Keep it simple
Think height, depth, side to side and floor work
Flow, flex and FUN
Smile Relax Prepare and Practice
Get help if this is not your strongest part
Think and count in sets of 4, 8 and 16 – you will never listen to music the same again!!
FEEDBACK AND CRITIQUE
Ask someone to help with this
Ask them to search for 10 things they can change for the better in your routine – even if they can just find 2 it will make them look for more
Most important have fun and embrace this challenge remember this is a great confident boost and a way to show all your hard earned skills to family and friends
