SHOW CHOIR… SPA-LIGHT!
Our ‘After-Hours’ Show Choir – an additional opportunity for current show choir members. Rehearsals will take place Tuesday evenings following our regularly scheduled Tuesday rehearsals. This will be an auditioned and invited group comprised of current Show Choir members grades 5-8, that are looking for that little something extra… a solo or duet, specialty number with faster-paced choreography and character staging. This will enhance our already established and show-stopping Show Choirs, allowing us to lengthen our ‘show times’ a bit for area performances.
Stay tuned for more information…
Auditions will be held early October; details TBD.
Tuition: $80 – $100 / session
Rehearsal: Tuesdays, 6:40–7:30pm
