Show Choir is a group of singer/dancers and instrumentalists performing Pop/Broadway style music. Students will develop a working knowledge of the fundamentals of Pop/Broadway style music, movement and theatrical performance, and focus on the ability to independently rehearse, evaluate and refine and perform their stage performance skills. In addition, students will create update and maintain an electronic portfolio that will become their professional stage performance resume at the conclusion of the course. Included in this portfolio will be recordings of 4 pieces prepared for auditions: each quarter, students will select an appropriate solo to analyze, interpret, rehearse, evaluate and refine. A research paper that explains the pieces history and significance will accompany the recording. Participation in Show Choir includes required attendance at evening and weekend rehearsals, community performance, and competitions held across the United States. Although there will be additional costs involved, fundraising opportunities will be available. This course may be repeated for elective credit.
