Watch some videos online, they may give you some ideas of what type of music to use with your performance styles. However, I don't exactly approve of coming up with a routine for the Zombie Ball three days before the show. I think as long as you work really, really hard on it until then, though, you'll have an ok routine for it... not great, but usable for now.

i see were you are coming from, but i am pretty quick at coriagraphing, and i already know most of the moves, so i just have to put them to music, thaks for the advice.

who says that you need music for a zombie ball routine? Just because that is the classic way of doing it does not mean that you need to have music.

I personally do a zombie routine without music, and it is one of my most requested tricks.

Well, when you add in the patter you have about a good 3 hour shoiw. Don't think kids will sit for that long.

My thoughts exactly. Cut out the fluff and go with your 5 strongest effects with the best patter. I mean there can be little filler gags and such, but you can't just do effect after effect after effect.

i just got back, the show went great. It captivated both the parets and the kids, And i think i got a few gigs out of it. i will hear more soon.

funny thing, i thought i blew a trick, due to a malfunction with the dove pan, the false bottom reveled itself early, but the audience, even thought they saw that, they didn't make the connection... it was one of their favorite tricks.
