Day 6 and 7

Now that most of the group numbers are taught, we've been spending time learning the smaller numbers like "I Eat More!" and "Think Positive."  On Day 7, the Oompa Loompas finally got to start dancing their numbers, and they're learning their Oompa Loompa places very well.  They are pretty excited to audition for Oompa Loompa solos and small groups on Monday.

The entire show is blocked, so as we complete sections of choreography, we'll start running the show in chunks.  In fact, the kids are already off book for the first chunk and can run from the opening through half of the first act.

We also had two great workshops.  Wendy Brown came in and taught how to count the beat in music, an essential skill for learning choreography. 

Erik Mortgous came to teach the Vocal Techniques workshop, and the kids had a lot of fun learning music from The Lion King as they learned.  Here's a clip of the half day kids singing "Are You Sleeping" in the Vocal Techniques workshop.

And, as always, we played plenty of games.  It's summer after all!
