Module 2 - Lesson 3 - Add-On Choreography
The add-on method is where you take one move and repeat it for any length of time, slowly adding in progressions as and when you find it appropriate. You would then teach the second move and repeat this process. Both moves would then be added together. This would then be repeated for move number 3 and so on.

Module 2 - Lesson 5 - Drop-In Choreography
In this video, Natalie will demonstrate drop-in choreography. Drop-in choreography is where you will have a simple base move which you will use to hold your participants in between the first combination and the end of the phrase. Slowly, this base move will be replaced by new moves and combinations resulting in a complete block.

Module 2 - Lesson 7 - Reverse Pyramid
In this video, Natalie will demonstrate a reverse pyramid method. The reverse pyramid is not a stand alone method. It must be used in conjunction with either 32 count or add-on. The aim is to create a block of 32 count choreography with multiple moves and this is done by reducing the repetitions of each move/combination.
