This style of routine must utilize a minimum of one prop; there is no maximum number of props.
Prop utilization would require that the dancers must use the prop to enhance the aesthetics and effectiveness of the dance, not simply dance with a prop in their hands. The prop must be an integral part of the routine
In a prop routine No backdrop can be used. (A backdrop is defined as a stationary item used strictly for background, and not manipulated by the team members during the performance.)
Poms do NOT count as a prop.
