Back in December, Kaiden auditioned for the school Show Choir, and was selected as "Main Girl" - oh the excitement. Every week she had to attend practices. Some weeks until 8pm. Sometimes even on Saturdays. It was a lot of work. She would make comments like "tonight we are working on our third number" and "tonight we learn the lift portion of the show" - it all sounded so official and fantastic. I had to pay $60 for her dress, which was so great, because as "Main Girl" it was different than all the other girl's dresses. She then needed a body stocking ($45) and jazz shoes ($50). This was all starting to feel reminiscent of her days of dance when it came time for the recital.
I received an email from the Chorus teacher that the Spring Chorus concert was coming up, with the date. I asked Kaiden that night, "when is your show choir performance?" She let me know that it was the same night as the Spring Chorus Concert... Hmmmm... how long is the Spring Concert, that seems like a lot to fit in to one evening. It was then that I was informed that the Footloose production was only 8 minutes long. EIGHT MINUTES LONG. All that practice, all that money for EIGHT MINUTES.
I present to you the production in it's entirety. You may want to go ahead and pop some popcorn and get comfortable for the amazing performance you are about to see. It's like a journey even... a journey into the lives of all the people that try out for shows like "America's Got Talent" and "American Idol" BEFORE they make it to the big time.
You are very welcome.
