i really want to compete as an independent soloist seeing how my team isn't competing seeing how schedule conflicts and what not...


can i do this?

Should i do this?


costume choreography and song help is GREATLY appreciated.


i am just turned 14 and i can pretty much do any step .

i love fast music and steps .

costumes are tough seeing how i am overweight .

i was thinking about using Michael Buble "Sway" but its kind of slow..

THANKS

i think that it would be a great idea! A really good song would be mambo number 5 by Lou Bega. In my opinion anyway! i love that song and i have always wanted to do a solo to it. For costumes, check at artstone and kellecompany.com. if not there, go to google and look for a costume!
hope this helps!

That's a great idea! A slow song would be ok because you would just do the steps double, or even triple, time.

I would suggest a black costume maybe? I personnaly think that it would look better, as you say that you are slightly overweight.

I would suggest talking to your teacher about helping you choreograph it. If she for some reason doesn't want to or can't, I would suggest choreographing it yourself. Either way, try to work in some hard and fast steps to give your self a challenge.

Good luck, and keep us updated!

Sounds like a great idea going solo!! If you want something upbeat then look on jazz cd's and fosse cd's, just music like that and your bound to find a song that you like. And for costumes then you can either look on ebay, or go to a dressmaker near you!! Good luck x
