Wow!!:) I can't wait to try this during class! I am also going to see if it works in my jazz, tap, lyrical, and modern classes too!

Thank you so much, this is so helpful! :D My teacher sometimes makes up combinations with all the steps similar, but for some reason that makes it more difficult to remember what goes where. Especially when no one else in the class gets it either. It's too bad, this is what happens:

Teacher: do this and this and this (blah blah blah) and finish by blah blah. Any questions?
Students: *cricket sounds*
Teacher: Okay *plays music*
Students: *not so epic fail*

and it's SO annoying!!! because sometimes I think I have it and then I can't remember.

Rant over. Sorry :/

This is so appreciated. Also another tip is to learn a form of shorthand for steps. You can make up your own. Dancers tend to say the long french term as they dance and that takes up important mental time when you need to "move on."

For example you may just call arabesque "air"
balance- bal

so very quickly arabesque balance becomes - air bal you know what it is and you are on to the next part. This has worked well for several dancers I know but you do have to take time to develop your own vocabulary.
