Choreography Auditions

Choreography auditions for next year’s show choir will be learned in person. Students will learn a dance in person or online from our choreographer, video record themselves dancing that choreographed routine, and send it to us on a Google Form to score. You may record as many times as you like, but only send your final copy

Choreography Learning Session IN PERSON (All Should Attend)

Both Learning sessions will take place in LRC Gym in the SW corner of the parking lot. Enter through the door on the 10th Street side of the building.

  • Monday, May 23 6:30-9:00pm– Current 9-11th Graders
    • 6:30pm-7:45pm- Tenors and Basses
    • 7:45pm-9:00pm- Sopranos and Altos
  • Tuesday, May 24 6:30-9:00pm– Current 8th Graders

    • 7:45pm-9:00pm- Sopranos and Altos (Tenors and Basses invited to stay and practice in the High School Choir Room on the North side of the high school.)

We are simply splitting up the times by voice part in order to avoid big crowds. All High Schoolers will learn the SAME dance. All 8th graders will learn the SAME dance.
