The Showstoppers are on double duty this week!

Congratulations to the Showstoppers Dance Team for their excellent performances this weekend!

First, they dazzled and amazed the fans at the Varsity football game Friday night. Both squads performed hip - hop choreography that they choreographed and arranged themselves. They were entirely responsible for all decision making including selecting music, movement, formations and costuming!

On Saturday afternoon they took the stage at the Columubus County Fair Grounds and, together (both squads), performed the crowd pleaser, Thriller by the late Prince of Pop, Michael Jackson.

Both performances were well received and appreciated by the crowd.

The Showstoppers at the fairgrounds Saturday shrouded in ghoulish attire!

Congratulations to SCHS's Main Attraction as well for an outstanding vocal performance! I enjoyed watching all of the choral performances from the participating schools in the county. Great work everybody!

Theater One!

This week in Theater One my students continued to develop characterization through the exploration of confrontation. The students were given confrontional scenarios to improvise (act out spontaneously). By the week's end we witnessed a teenage spat instigated by a trouble maker, someone being thrust in front of a vehicle during an argument, and a two - timing boyfriend getting caught by his sweethearts... not really, we were acting!

I had fun with this group this week!

Advanced Theater!

This week in Theater we began to prepare for play festival with formal run throughs that included load in and load out and lighting cues. We also discussed sound effects and incorporated propterties!

Great job Advanced Theater!

Advanced Dance!

This week in Advanced Dance we prepared for the performances we participated in this weekend. We also began to experiment with some computer software called Lifeforms. This software is very tricky to work with so this week we just got a feel for the basic functioning of the program. Later on down the road (when we are able to access the portable laptop lab again) we will commit to creating choreography using the software and with any luck I will post the end result of that project here on the blog. Here is a link to a more detailed description of the software.

Once again, congrats to the Showstoppers for a fantastic performing weekend!
