Half Time Performance

Hello Everyone

Just wanted to make sure everyone knew that we would not be performing our show at half time.
I’ve made this decision for a couple reasons.

  1. Time allowed at half time doesn’t let us do our complete show. We would hate for our last performance to be small portion of the show.

  2. We want the last time we perform our show to be a great performance. There’s no way we could perform well after not touching the show for 5 days.

We understand that some parents would like to see the show, but a half time performance would be a let down for our students.
Thanks for your understanding.
