The Short Program is a class offered by SSMDTA where six moves are given to the teams that they have to integrate into a drill that runs between 3 and 5 minutes. Teams will be judged on their execution of those maneuvers as well as the choreography of the drill as a whole. There are no gait requirements for this class.
The six required moves for the 2023 Short Program are:
- Circle – Clover Leaf – Box
- Diagonal Cross (Big X)
- Holy Cross – Partner Swap
- Suicide into Single File
- Swing Your Partner
