This class is more then putting on a good SHOW, its about understanding why we do the show in the first place. It takes MORE then talent to be truly great. Students will gain a greater understanding of group commitment, increase their creative abilities, become more selfconfident, and develop a lifelong appreciation of music/choreography and showmanship. Students will learn by participating in weekly vocal and choreography rehearsals, by performing all kinds of musical styles in various venues, by singing solos, duets, ensembles, and by listening to and participating in class discussions concerning the elements of music and proper vocal techniques.
