The only required part to learn for the contest, was the choreography that goes with the spelling of "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious". First thing she did was write down the spelling so she could follow it, then she probably spent and hour or so in front of the computer learning the motions and watching the video clip of the cast doing it. Then over the corse of several days, she would stick the cd in and practice it here and there. After getting that part down, she came up with the rest of the choreography on her own and put it all together. All in all it probably took her 3-4 hours to learn the whole thing.
