3 Characteristics of Good Show Choir Risers

January 7, 2021

As we begin this new year, the show choir season is just getting started for many programs. Now is a great time to consider the tools you will need and finalize your performance plans. We will be looking at some areas of consideration for your program to kick off in 2021.


Show choirs often use either a 3X3 or 4X4 grid for their performances. Something that usually isn’t thought about is having risers that can be converted from a 3X3 to a 4X4 and vice-versa rather than needing two different sets. This allows you to adjust to your group size and also performance spaces as you travel to different locations.

Ease of Use

Since show choir competitions are timed, setting up and taking down the risers is incredibly important. Having a system that allows you to carry the deck and supports together will make this transition from waiting to performance to strike happen with ease.

Stub leg systems aren’t the best option for this because the leg will sometimes fall out which wastes valuable time when entering or leaving the stage.


Durability should be a major factor in any important purchasing decision. When it comes to your show choir risers, you need them to last for a long time. More than likely, this is a purchase you will only have the opportunity to make once it your career so you need to make it count.

Durable risers will improve every part of your program from practice to the performance for many years.  This feature will also ensure the risers are safe to use and allow you to focus on the event and not worry about if the risers will hold the performers.


All in all, there are a lot of things that go into making sure you have high quality show choir risers. They should be versatile, easy to use, and durable. Having good equipment can make your program more successful by giving you a strong foundation.

If you need new risers for this year or if you just need to plan for the future, contact our experts so we can put together a package that will meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
