Dance: Group: Come With Me Now
Style: Contemporary
Song: Come With Me Now by Kongos (Korbe Canida Cover)
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9j5XMkeGNU)
Dancer(s): Kalani, Chloe, Mckaylee, Lucy, & Maycee 
Side Notes: Kalani will be costume, hGair, earrings, and makeup A. All the rest of the girls will be hair, makeup, costume, and earrings B. 
Story: This is a dark contemporary piece where all the other girls are trying to get Kalani to come to the dark side. They want Kalani to be a bad girl instead of the good girl she’s always been. They want her to let loose and be rebellious and edgy. This dance is still very elegant even though it’s very dark. It will also be very technical. Kalani will have a feature in the beginning of the dance with coupe turns into a Russian switch leap. There will be lots of contemporary moves, leaps like calypsos and switch leaps, there will also be plenty of turns like fouettes and pirouettes. Most of this dance will be all the girls dancing together.  By the end of the dance, although Kalani still looks like a good girl on the outside she’s a bad girl who’s rebellious and lets loose just like the rest of the girls.

Dance: Solo / I Wanna Get Better
Style: Jazz
Song: I Wanna Get Better by Bleachers
Side Notes: Inside the desk, there is a paper with a gold star and an A+ written on it.  The books are sporadically spread over the desk. The hair ribbons are tied where the elastics go in the pigtails. Due to Jenna doing acro in this number, she will only wear the glasses when she is sitting at the desk, then take them off when she has to dance on her feet. Also, the desk will have a matching school chair prop (sorry I forgot to add a photo)
Story: By mistake, Jenna invests herself in a young love relationship (12-13) with a very intelligent boy who goes to her school. His family is extremely wealthy, however, they are judgmental and when Jenna begins to date the boy she realizes she will have to change herself to fit the standards of his family and be accepted, although she knows the boy shes dating would like her either way. Since Jenna was a very little girl, she suffered from ADHD causing her to be extremely hyper and get distracted easily, which lead to her getting poor grades. Jenna thinks that she has to step up her game and try to focus and be a great student without all the silly and intoxicating medications the doctors recommend, with or without this boy and his uptight family. She studies, does her homework, and works hard every night reviewing and looking over notes until finally a big test comes and Jenna aces it, for the first time in a while. At the end of the dance, she returns to her desk prop, kicks her feet up and holds up the test that’s inside her desk with a giant gold star and an A+ written in red ink as to say, “You were saying?” to the boy’s family.
This dance has a lot of jumps and acro tricks. Jenna will use the desk and chair to tumble over and on. When the song reaches the first chorus, (:55) Jenna will stand on the desk and do this jump off of it.

Then, she will land on the floor going onto her stomach and kicking her feet up. The dance is very energetic (showing Jenna still suffering from a side effect of the ADHD, hyperactivity) but overall the dance raises awareness to not be cruel to every child that seems “annoying” or “too hyper and can’t sit down” because you don’t know their background and they could be suffering a lot more than you think.

Hi I just wanted to note that I made a mistake in the discription of talia's trio Girls. I was wondering if you could take it down and I could re submit it. Thanks (else I could just re submit the description I guess)

Sure, no problem.

Dance: Group // Come With Me Now
Style: Contemporary
Song: Come With Me Now - Kongos (Youtube Link)
Dancers: Chloe, Lucy, Mckaylee, Kalani, Maycee 
Story: The girls are portraying people who are confused. They are at a point in their life in which so much has gone wrong that they are want to get to the afterlife. At the same time they can still find reasons to live. This piece is an insight into their mind and situation. 
Side notes: The costume, although it can’t be fully seen (and I apologize for that) has a body suit underneath and a little bit of a flare out skirt (all with the same material & pattern). At the beginning of the dance all girls sneak out (during the accordion). This dance will have similar movements and facials to ‘Red with Envy’. The girls movements for the most part will be hard hitting and sharp. This group will feature all the girls at times - we will see some beautiful jumps from Mckaylee and Maycee, turns from Chloe and Lucy and strong technique from Kalani. The girls will commit to the performance and portray this role very well. During the instrumental the girls will show a battle within Chloe (conflict they feel like they are pulled in two different directions) and Chloe will die. The rest of the girls again toy with the idea of dying and going to the afterlife again. When it says ‘come with me now’ right after the instrumental Chloe will get up - scarring the other girls and end the dance with a fierce turn sequence.

Dance: Trio // Girls
Style: Jazz
Song: “Girls” by the 1975 cover by Vanquish (Youtube Link)
Dancers: Talia, Jenna, Mckaylee
Story: The 3 girls are having a sleepover and they are venting their frustrations with boys and just having a fantastic time together!
Side notes: There will be two of the pillows shown above and before the dance begins they will be placed at the bottom of the stage (on stage left side) in a corner (where the apron of the stage begins). When the girls start the dance they will be in a small circle in the centre of the stage. Mckaylee will jump up and grab the hairbrush. Using it like a microphone she will begin to lip sync and dance (a little). She is sharing the story of what happened to her. Then at 0:26 Talia and Jenna will jump up and join in and start to dance with her. The second chorus will feature Talia’s story and she will do some lyrically moves on the ground near the pillows and she will lip sync w/ the hairbrush. While the others dance on the other side of the stage. During the second chorus the girls will take part in a choreographed pillow fight. The whole dance will have some fun turns, jumps and will be very fun and lighthearted. The girls will enjoy performing and will smile at each other and the audience throughout. This piece is very upbeat and energetic!
