Introducing a NEW classroom choreography card game, exercise and resource for dancers and choreographers.  Push through a mind block, upgrade existing choreography or have fun playing a classroom game...all while using REAL core choreography techniques.

Choreo Cards are the perfect reference tool for introductory level choreographers as well as experienced level choreographers in ALL styles of dance.

Card Categories

STAGING CARDS (BLUE)

These cards require minimal change or alteration to choreography.  However, staging existing choreography can be a little more challenging than you might think.

REVISION CARDS (GOLD)

These cards are focused on challenging you to add or change choreography completely; not just alter it.

WILD CARDS (MAGENTA)

These cards can definitely be WILD and make you think outside the box.  Most cards will require a creative solution in order to complete the suggestion.

 
 

A Choreo Tool

Creating choreography can a be a tricky job.  Perhaps you're hitting a road block or you're just not feeling some exisisting choreography that you've already set.  Somethings missing...I don't know...hmm...

GRAB YOUR CHOREO CARDS AND DRAW FROM THE DECK!

Use the cards to spark an idea and freshen up exisiting choreography.  Even if the suggestion isn't something you would normally do...maybe it doesn't even match the mood or style of the routine.  THAT DOESN'T MATTER!

Keep in mind, the purpose of Choreo Cards is not to pull choreography directly from a deck.  The BEST way to make the cards work for you, is to MAKE them work for you...literally!  By forcing yourself to seamlessly implement a card, you'll inspire and ignite that creative genius from inside.  Keep the card suggestion, draw another OR hopefully you're now inspired and have created a new option of your own!

Note: Smaller/Larger groups are possible, however smaller groups limit formations and larger groups require more time.

STEP 2

Dancers learn or create a short combo, approx. 30 seconds to 1:00 minute in length.

Suggested Time Limit: 15-20mins

STEP 3

Have each group of dancers set a couple basic formations with their group.

Suggested Time Limit: 3-5mins

STEP 4

Each group draws 3 cards. One from each category: Staging, Revision & Wild.  Apply the suggestions as seamlessly as possible...make it work!

Suggested Time Limit: 5mins

Note: You can vary up the card drawing however you like!  Use all Staging, all Wild or draw more than 3 cards!  Re-mix as you see fit!

STEP 5

Each group performs the revised choreography for the class.  Depending on class time, discuss the choreographic choices made or draw from the deck again to play another round.  The game rules and variations are endless!

 

Take the game even further and use Choreo-Card Critique Sheets to judge and determine a winner!
