I’m a crazy person. I scheduled two performances in two weeks. Seriously, I don’t know what I was thinking.
Anyway, this program is one I’ve done three other times at three other campuses. It’s always a big hit. The superintendent really enjoyed it and asked me to put a last minute article about it in the weekly district newsletter. It was front page!
The front decorations were made using the Everyday Pop-Up Cards cartridge (skirt and heels), Old West (font: me to), Gyspy Wanderings: (swing), and Cindy Loo (font: teach). I made the male pants and shoes by hand. They were pretty easy because I just made them straight.
The students did a revue of popular swing and jazz songs that are all a part of the Silver Burdett Making Music Series: “Sing, Sing, Sing” “It Don’t Mean a Thing, if it Ain’t Got that Swing,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Ja-Da,” and the title song, “Teach Me to Swing.”
It was short….running about 15 minutes. I had a parent complaint about that……though it was unintentional. Lol! In not so many words, the parent said, “we were about ten minutes late and it was almost over. We were thinking it was going to at least an hour or so.” Whatevs dude. Next time, come on time.
Well, that’s two programs down. The next one is after Thanksgiving so that’s two weeks off….not including the actual week of Thanksgiving. Yay!
Thanks for reading!
