Right now, we are in the blood and guts part of our Class Acts rehearsal process. Virtually every class has their opening number choreographed. Most classes need to memorize the lyrics as we spent tons of our time learning the dance moves. The lyrics will come, I am confident.
- Lip Synched Opening Number
- Tableau Team Individual Performances
- Company Number
Each solo or duet will work in a tableau team. When your team is performing, you will move down center. You will need tableaux & transitions for each performer in your tableau team. The other groups will be onstage in an easy-to-hold tableau. Once each team has performed, we will end with a company number you won’t have to lip synch to, but will move to.
This project is hard, no doubt about it. Plus add the fact that we will have a real audience [not just nicely trained theatre students from our own classes] and it’s a recipe for anxiety. But you all have these essential theatre skills. You have been working on this since day one and your performances will be stunning if you continue to show up, do your work, and honor the rehearsal process.

What advice do you have for someone who is nervous to perform during this final? What should they do to be prepared for our Class Acts?
