Working with show choirs always brings me back to the days! I was a Neenah High School Act II, and Vintage member, and my fond memories of competing all of the Midwest for show choir was a highlight of my high school time. This Fall I got to work with New London Middle School’s show choir Vocal Motion, and choreographed their competition show for this coming season–student empowerment with songs like “Brave”, “Cool Kids”, “Roar!”, and “The World is Ours”.
An opener, one boys number, one girls number, one ballad, one closer, and ONE extra song later, we had a whole show of choreography! I had so much fun coming up with the movement and working with them over two-weekends, and it brought me back to my “glory days”. For the record, I was a dancer who could carry a tune, not a singer who could get by on the dancing. We called ourselves dancer-singers, not singer-dancers. I wish them the best luck for their competition season this year!
New London Middle School Vocal Motion is under the direction of Ms. Katie Levendusky.
