How Do I Pick My First Routine?

There are many routines to pick from when deciding, for the first time, just what to do on your first time out on the floor! As teachers, we will always try to help you pick which one would be best for you. There are a few things you should consider when trying to pick your first rou-tine to make sure you have a fun journey leading up to your performance!

One way, and possibly the most obvious, is to pick your favorite and most comfortable dance. If you are a newer student and feel very comfortable with Fox Trot, go with that option. Your first routine should be fun and exciting— we can save the challenging dances for your later routines! Likewise, if you absolutely LOVE the Rumba, But you’re uncomfortable with it, choose that one to lift it to the level of your other dances! There is no rule to picking your first routine as long as it is an enjoyable experience!

If you are unsure, you can always let your teacher pick one for you. Your teachers know what dances would be spectacular for you for your first time out, trust them. They are here to help and they know what they are talking about— they will never steer you in a poor direction!

All in all, your first routine is an exciting time for you in the studio. It is almost like a rite of passage as we have come to know the first routine. Throw caution to the wind and have fun! You might be nervous but you will find that it is so rewarding!
