I have a really bad memory and I cant remember basically any routines.

is there any tips to help me remember faster or something?

Very often, dances are broken down into phrases which repeat. A trademark of the Imperial era solos by Petipa and the like runs: "Do this combination three times, then do something else once, and start a new phrase after that." Because of the way most music is written, this pattern, sometimes called "straight 8s", helps you remember the choreography.
