Talent day is up and coming. Start practicing those skills now. Lighthouse is full of wonderful students AND teachers who have great talents to share. Whether it be playing an instrument, a video of a performance or sport, or simply being able to speak on a topic of interest. Any skill is fair game! Team up, work with a partner, or take it on by yourself. If you can breathe you have a skill! Every one of us was made uniquely and all have talents, hidden or obvious. LCA encourages everyone to participate and we are all looking forward to what you will bring to the table!
Talent Show Tips
(taken from https://hobbylark.com/performing-arts/Talent-Show-Ideas-for-Kids ...which also had a few ideas if you are stuck on what you should do, or are brainstorming with your child)
- Practice, practice, practice! Even though you might think your act is easy and in your mind you can perform it perfectly, you have to practice. Practice twice as much as think you need to. You’ll be glad you did.
- Have a parent, brother, sister, or friend video your act as you practice it. Watch the videos carefully to see what works and what doesn’t, and what needs to be changed or improved.
- Again: choose some great music. Music adds energy, excitement, and a professional quality to your act.
- Remember that only a few people are on the front row. Don’t forget about the majority of your audience, who are watching from farther away or off to the side. If you’re speaking during your act, speak clearly, slowly and loudly so that everyone can hear and understand you. Whether you’re speaking or not, hold your head up, stand or sit up straight, wear bright colors, smile, and take your time. There’s no need to rush through your act.
- Just before you go on stage, take a deep breath, relax, smile and have fun!
- If you mess up, just smile, laugh, and keep going. If someone in your group messes up, ignore it and keep going. No one is perfect, and mistakes do happen. In fact, mistakes can be very funny and make your act even more entertaining. If you laugh about your mistake, the audience will laugh with you and enjoy the show even more.
- When you’re finished, stand up tall, smile, wave to the audience, take a big, long bow, then wave again and walk—don’t run—off the stage.
