Guidelines (detailed instructions will be sent home to all performers)
TWO (2) minute maximum – As the show becomes more and more popular, with more students wanting to participate, we need to limit the length of the show.
Music must be submitted on a USB preferably edited to 2 minutes. If not edited, the music will fade at the 2 minute mark. If playing an instrument, please ensure time is 2 minutes.
Pieces/Acts are to be choreographed, well rehearsed, and polished. Please do not sign up with the intent of simply dancing on stage.
