The students in show choir, come on their own accord in the evening, to work for two to three hours per night. The students are intense in creating a wonderful show. I always say that they act like brothers and sisters in that they help each other, but also keep each other in check! Students in show choir also add in dance moves during rehearsals! Many of these students have never danced before in their lives. To take a student from the beginning to the end, and to see the result and the glow on their face is immeasurable! The students who attend this school, are a socio-economic mixture. Often I find that students are unable to afford the dance shoes that they are asked to purchase. As well, they are unable to purchase show choir make-up. There is no budget for show choir. Currently we beg, borrow, and ....borrow items from other school buildings or private parties. As students in a public school system, we must be able to afford them every opportunity to learn and grow!
