Hey everyone. Just curious when do you start choreography for solos/duets/trips. Do you ever start in the summer or always in October. Thanks [smile]

Solos and duets start around October average. Some will start in the summer, but not often. Trios start end of August.

Depends on the choreographers schedule. DD has done them as early as August and as late as February, two weeks before the first comp. (I don't recommend that, but they were advanced senior dancers and did just fine, although it was much cleaner by the end of the season.) if a guest choreographer is used, it will be whenever they are in town.

DD will most likely start her choreo for contemporary solo in August, but 2 teachers are collaborating for her this year, so who knows. Tap solo choreo will start October.

S/D/T all start in October as well here. One dancer this past year started her solo in summer though, and a couple solos started much later maybe in February.

DD16 starts in August and DD12 starts as soon as the last season is over.  Last year it was May, this year it will be August.

LOL, the question shouldn't be "when do you start" but rather "when do you finish".    We pay for 4 hours but sometimes it's 4 months before we get them all.

We have the option to start solos/duets/trios during our summer session II, if not we start with the school year in August.

At our studio nothing begins until the new season starts in September. Summer is for working on technique in privates and studio run weekly tech classes.

We will probably start new solos sometime in August or September. Duets, trios, and groups start in September as well, but occasionally August. Depends.

Edit: DD didn't start her solos until February and on of her groups. One of her other groups wasn't started until April. It's been a crazy year, lol.

Summertime for those using outside people. For in house people, some start in August and others in September or October.

We had an injured girl last year who started in January.

This past season, DD didn't start until January with her 1st comp middle of Feb.  That time felt too short for us so SO & DT (each are doing a solo for her) agreed to start this summer.  We are at a super small studio that focus more on performances than competitions - basically DD learns a new dance almost every month.  Next season, we want to make sure her solos are solid before all the other choreo starts.

Dependent upon the dancer (dancers in D/T). Mine is starting her solo in July this year (they have auditions tomorrow, but there really isn't a reason she wouldn't make the team again), her and her choreographer already picked the song and we purchased the costume today (simple base that I am stoning) because it was on sale, so I jumped at grabbing it. Technically, if we do the trio we are thinking they already started it because it was 3 of them in a contemporary class and they loved the song/dance. I am sure they would start that choreography fairly soon as well. Groups start in September typically.

My daughter starts learning her solo in July. We always start early and our first comp is in October this year. We do Fierce in Pittsburgh as our first comp so it gives us time to clean our routines before DMI in January.
