HOW TO USE THIS PAGE:

The top priority are  dances from this semester for your level (Labeled: main focus dances) , that will be used in that semesters' big show. (i.e. Fall 2016, Spring 2017) 

After that work in this order: 

  • all levels dances (used at festivals, gigs with Bog Band, etc) 
  • ending steps
  • understudy material (as assigned by Shannon)

YouTube Playlist:

The unlisted Performer YouTube playlist has additional steps, dances and breakdowns, and includes those that may be used in the future and may have been covered at class or MAD Week.
