Favorite class activities for performance day?

    Hi all,
    We open THE HELLO GIRLS on Thursday, and I'm trying to go fairly easy on my kiddos in class. I have my usual line bash & relaxation exercises, but I just wondered if you have anything special you do in class on performance days? I hate to start a new unit or give them anything too intense when I want them to be focused on the show.

    Hello Cassy!

    We usually watch musicals  in class and sometimes order food or do potluck. As you know there are a lot of recorded broadway shows and also some good hollywood musicals.

    Hope that helps a little,
    Fredreka

    Improv scenes as their characters or even someone else's character.
    could you explain what a line bash is?
    thanks

    Sorry, Thomas! That's what I call a speed run with no blocking.
