yup just take some of the tricks you already know and string them together.

With time you will learn different ways to transition into the tricks to make it look smoother.

Patience and Practice is all it takes.

I have a few combos from simple to more advanced on my website just click the banner below.

Kinda like what he said ^^

I guess if your doing a talent show and not in a crowd of throwers, the most important thing is to be smooth. they will like all the tricks if they are smooth. If you were doing a more official freestyle, I would tell you something else, but your not. Also, start out with really cool combo then go do some easier stuff, then build up in difficult towards the end. You probably want 1.5-2.5 minutes.

Hope this helps!

Go watch other peoples freestyles and/or yoyo videos for ideas.  After that, go turn on some of your favorite music and start yoyoing to it to see how your style of yoyoing fits with your music.  Pick the song that you think best fit your style of yoyoing (make sure the song is something that not only you like, but the audience will like as well).  After you have picked the song, listen to it several times while keeping in mind all the tricks and combos that you know.  Take one of your combos and put it in a part of the song that you think it will look and sound good with.  After you pick the combo and the part of the song, actually try it out to see how it feels.  Continue this process until you have completed the amount of time you need to take for your performance.

I find that the hardest part is a starting trick for a routine.  Putting together a routine is not easy, it actually requires a little bit of thinking.  Once you do figure out a routine, practice, practice, practice it a lot.

Good luck,
Hope this helped.

start out with a flashy trick (some kind of complex slack) and then make sure your flashy tricks are spaced out evenly. This will help keep the audience's attention through the technical stuff, especially if it's a "civilian" (non yoyoer) audience.

Start out with something that you know will work though, and dont mess it up
I was just messing around with like 2 minutes and i put a gyro flop in there=fail
i also put revolutions in and i didnt know what was going on there and i did really bad
luckily i was just messing around
But yeah start out with something easy but fancy looking that you can hit everytime, and make sure you can snapstart

Start with rock the baby is just okay . Or around the corner, of even elihop, braintwister, boing2.

Go with easy but fancy like leg wrap trapeze, hiroyuki stuff he do on the shoulder (just do it the simple way) don't forget GYRO FLOP. people love it..

You might want to go a bit 5A, it's more impressive doing aerial or butterfly. Or even super basic 4A with a few whips..
