The show today and everything was so successful and definitely a lot of fun to do and watch! The play performances Friday should be a blast to watch as well, so come back and enjoy the final show of Workshop II! Can’t believe it’s almost over!
All day, everyone was busy preparing for the dance, fashion and music shows today and putting the finishing touches on last minute details. While everyone was getting ready, Room 1 was quickly being transformed into both a stage and a fashion runway- including lights for the catwalk.
There was a packed house for the first entertainment of the afternoon- Group 1’s musical performance of The Lion Sleeps Tonight. All the kids had smiles on their faces and seemed excited to have an audience to perform to. The children smiled, laughed and waved out to family members and friends. The audience was very much enjoying the show, as they too had smiles on their faces watching their children. After group 1 finished, they bowed and walked off with their little outfits on.
Up next was group 2, singing Happy by Pharrell Williams. The audience was happy (excuse the pun) themselves, as they watched the performance. The kids were in the groove, dancing and moving about with their choreography mastered. They did a great job and everybody loved it!
After group 2 was group 3’s rendition of Roar by Katy Perry, a capella style. For those who didn’t previously hear it, their performance was just as good, if not, better than before! They had lots of energy and the audience quite liked it.
Next up was the dancing portion of the show. Group 2 got things rolling with their mime and funk dance routines. This was so great and a joy to watch! The miming the children did was very creative and hilarious- from the silly scenarios like performing the daily morning routine, to dealing with frogs. The kids were laughing and smiling throughout their routine- clearly having fun. Group 1’s mime show was just as fun and the kids had smiles on their faces the entire time.
Then the dancing turned to Flamenco style and both groups 1 and group 2 gave great performances of their flamenco dance they learned. In group 3, they paired up and danced like that. The music was great and the audience enjoyed getting to see the flamenco dances.
Then it was time for intermission, which was very nice- as there was food and drinks, artwork on display, as well as items for the auction. After the intermission, the audience members came back to a changed room! The room had been reorganized to resemble a fashion runway, aligned with special colored lights. It looked like a professional catwalk. The audience eagerly awaited the models to come out and reveal their fashions they’d been working on. Once the music started playing, the first model walked out. As they walked out in front of the audience, which was positioned in an L formation, the audience clapped and when the models hit front and center, they gave a little spin or whatever move they wanted. The kids were sporting their very own designed sandals and clothes. It was great. After the last model walked out, everyone came back out and finished up with a bit of dancing. And then the show was over!
