The SHOW is a great program. Their main goal is to create an environment in which students can train to become the best version of themselves.
Being a member of a group, you get to watch other people that might be better then you. When I watch someone dance, I pick up on things. I’m not afraid to ask anyone in the room that has been a dancer for a long time – I ask them what to do, and they show you in a different way. Then, it clicks. I also love giving that back as a vocal performer, helping out in that way.
It’s unique, being part of this group. We are a diverse group of people, all very unique and with completely different strengths – but I’ve never connected with people so much in my life. It’s such a trusting and comfortable environment. I learn something new every day just watching those around me.
When you’re on stage with The SHOW, you get a different kind of energy that’s fed from company member to company member. It brings a different level of excitement to a performance. It almost takes the stress away because you’re pretty much family. It’s an adrenaline rush and a fun experience.
As someone who considered myself just a dancer for 18 years of my life, I can honestly say that I wish this program existed when I was younger. It would have made my transition into musical theatre much more seamless. Dancers must sing, and singers must dance! These guys know what they’re doing!
It’s brand new and just starting, but already The SHOW is affecting the city, giving people like me a home outside of vocal lessons and dance classes. It’s a place where you can combine those skills while establishing new ones.
I love how passionate they are about what they do. That’s what gets me riled up, excited to be in the program and coming back to the next rehearsal. Their passion for performance is just as big as mine.
Music videos are so much fun! It was amazing, getting behind the scenes to see what the professionals do. I can’t wait to do more.
The SHOW is definitely challenging. The teachers are super inspiring, and they always push you. They don’t take no for an answer and are very encouraging. I have no doubt that I belong here. It feels safe.
