How to Direct the Steps in a Beauty Pageant
By eHow Culture & Society Editor

Rate: (0 Ratings)

Direct steps in a beauty pageant by keeping the whole process simple and making time for plenty of rehearsal. Contestants may have little experience dancing, let alone staying with a group, but careful planning on your part can help everyone look good.

InstructionsDifficulty: Easy
Things You⿿ll Need:
Recorded music for choreographing
Music player
Notebook in which to record your steps
Pen or pencil
Step1Select numbers that are easy to dance to. They shouldn't be too fast or too slow. Save those numbers for the walking sections of the beauty pageant such as the swimsuit competition and the formal competition. Avoid marches or tunes too easily identified with specific events or holidays.
Step2Work out simple moves in steps of eight that you can string together later. For example, step forward, back, side and side can easily work for eight beats, or alternative arms out, arms down moves such as flapping.
Step3Write down your moves as they align with the music. You can use any system of notation down that works for you, even words and stick figures. Your goal is to remember the dance steps so you can teach them consistently.
Step4Alter the ending slightly to produce the big finish. Audiences expect a little something extra at the end of a number, with more flash, more color and a little variation. End the number with contestants posed so they can remain still during applause.
Step5Teach the steps to the contestants with many frequent shorter rehearsals rather than a few long ones. People learn better with repetition and well-trained contestants are happy, smiling contestants. Remind them not to count during the performance.
Step6Place the strongest dancers in the middle so other dancers can watch them while performing and get back to the right step if they forget something. This old theater trick still works and you can have fun coming up with variations that keep the strong dancers where the others can see them.
