The role of Dance Captain has many responsibilities, and Bailey, especially with her excessive dance training is ready to step up to the challenge. Being dance Captain means working with the Choreographer to find the best dance steps to convey the message of the show, and elements the director would like to add. After all, dance tells a story and you need choreography to dance. Another responsibility of the Dance Captain, is to be sure that the cast knows their blocking and the choreography. The Dance Captain must work with the cast to make the show flow, this means adjusting routines as needed and teaching some less experienced dancers how to move flawlessly.
