The first step is to figure out your desired style of dance. Whether it be hip hop, or pointe. Both styles are equally popular. After your style is picked out, it is crucial to pick out a speed of beat, or a song. Once the song or speed is chosen, you can start making your dance. This dance will be performed in front of teacher with a specified audience, or written down on paper and explained to teacher. If the dance is memorized, the student will be graded on how they perform the dance. If the student decides to write the dance down, the best way to organize it is to put every eight count on one line. Either way, the dance must be twenty eight counts.
