SPANISH FASHION SHOW - ¡Hola todos! Looking for a fun way to go into winter break in two weeks? How about bringing your class to our LIVE Spanish FASHION SHOW! There will be music, fashion and a lot of ESPAÑOL!
The show is taking place FRIDAY February 16th hours 2, 3, 4 (lunch TBD- anyone willing to trade "C" for my "B" lunch? :), 5 and 6 in the forum (the meeting room behind the library). Space is limited (we can accommodate around 80 people) so please email me ASAP if your class can attend!
Classes should arrive 10 minutes into the hour (to give us time to change into costume!) and the show will last approximately 20-25 minutes (depending on the size of my class).
The students are working very hard and are excited to perform for you! We would really appreciate your support coming out to watch them so they can have an authentic Spanish experience.
I know it is a little bit early but I wanted to get the date out there so everyone can check their schedules! I will send out reminder emails next week or the week of the show.
We hope to see you there! ¡Hasta luego!

Our set this year is as follows:
1. True Colors (the Trolls version ) - Soloists: Cole Argo & Kaitlyn Collins, Vocal Percussion: Noah Canales
2. Believer (Imagine Dragons) - Soloist: Sophie Psiakis, Vocal Percussion: Andrew Swanson
3. Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen) - Soloist: Noah Canales, Vocal Percussion: LauRen Burgess
All choreography was done by Noah Ascencio, MiDori Budd, and Noah Canales.
The kids have put a lot of thought into this set, and this theme of "self love" and finding inner peace. It's really starting to come together, and we'd love to have some guinea pigs to practice on before our competition on Friday, February 23 at Grand Ledge High School.
