About this pro

Well rounded choreographer, specializing in majorette, hip-hop, commercial hip-hop, pom, jazz, african, theatrics, acrobats/gymnastics...very open in working with a wide range of ages!

I enjoy choreographing and teaching many individuals because the art form allows me to standout in a whole another world and level of creativity.  I love to inspire and empower many individuals who have passions for dancing and learning choreography.

I have been teaching dance for over 20 years, here in Memphis.  I have created many award winning routines as seen on Bring It! (Credits include "The Memphis Prancing Tigerettes", "Infamous Dancerettes", Golden High Steppers, and The Sparkling Diamondettes). I have choreographed routines for "World of Dance "Atlanta" and "Dallas"...while working with "M-town Image".

Im one of the most known, well-rounded choreographers in Memphis!

  • Marico Colbért

    He’s very creative, His work ethic is insane, he uses a great balance of artistry and athleticism in his choreography which is why i love his choreography so much. Also, he focuses more so on the quality of choreography than the quantity.

  • Martina

    It's challenging crowd pleasing and unique

  • Nandi McDaniel

    Fred’s choreo was very challenging and different for me. I wasn’t very comfortable with it, because it’s not my cup of tea, but it was great to struggle through something new rather than giving up. However, it was a fun experience learning it and showing it to the judges.

  • Mike De’Angelo

    I like how passionate Fred Sims is about his choreography work. Which makes the experience exciting and full of life! I would recommend his choreography services to people of all ages and dance genres

When working with competitive danceteams, I normally charge per dancer...10 or more dancers=$10 per dancer, per session! Sessions are from 1 to 2 hours per day! Some teams rehearse 2 to 3 days a week...while some teams need choreography and a competitive routine within a week!
