LJES Talent Show Important Info
It’s that time of year when our talented kids get to wow us with singing, dancing, gymnastics, cultural arts, and so much more!
*Try outs will be on a first come, first go basis.
*Sign Ups will be for a 5-minute time slot.
EACH CHILD MAY ONLY PARTICIPATE IN ONE ACT!
All acts must follow the following guidelines:
1. Be prepared! Select your group ahead of time so there isn’t any last minute scrambling.
2. Be prepared! Practice your routine ahead of time so you are confident during your tryout.
3. Be prepared! All acts must be 90 seconds or less.
4. Be prepared! Bring this Application Form with you to your try out. This is a legal requirement for elementary aged kids and those who do not have their forms will be turned away.
We can’t wait to see what talent you bring! Whether your child wants to sing opera, play a fiddle or square dance, we are open to all types of talent from our LJES students. Group routines are
encouraged! **Please note that in order to keep the show running smoothly, we are limiting each child to participate in ONE act only. Thank you for respecting this request.**
Looking forward to a fun event!
It is very important for PARENTS to understand how much work goes into this night. There will be groups that audition last and perform last. We try our best to do what best suits
the show so please be patient.
Important Music Information:
Please email your songs and karaoke tracks to LJEStalent@gmail.com
You must provide a track in digital format (there will be no CD or tape player).
Click here for directions on how to send a song via email. (You'll be surprised at how easy this is, but if this link doesn't provide all the info you need, you can find more help by typing "how to attach an mp3 to an email" into your Google search and LOTS more like this one will be available to guide you.)
It is easy to find tracks using iTunes by typing in the name of the song followed by the word "karaoke." YouTube links WILL NOT be accepted! Be sure to listen to previews of several versions before purchasing to find the best. Of course, you can use the original versions of songs for dances, etc. Parents, please be mindful in assisting students to choose songs without profanity or age-inappropriate content.
In addition, all acts must be 90 seconds or less, which means in most cases you will have to modify a track to fit the time allotted. Please modify the track prior to sending. Here is a link to help you do this. It's easy and you'll be learning something new!
When you send your music, please include: name of student(s), name of song, and grade so it will go into the correct playlist.
