BackBeat City Show Choirs are premier singing and dancing groups that perform in our biannual end of semester shows, as well as periodic gigs throughout the semester. The Show Choirs are divided into four different age groups.
BackBeat show choir is open to high school students only
BackBeat is our oldest and most experienced Show Choir. BackBeat is a positive environment for high school students to be challenged and inspired, working together to create a cohesive group of vocalists and dancers requested for performances across the Connecticut region. A typical BackBeat class involves a vocal warm-up, team building exercises, and rehearsals of material that will be shared at our end of semester Learn Love performance. Once a week, students work with our Hip-Hop instructor, making them something truly special to witness at any performance. Students are encouraged to suggest music that they are passionate about to incorporate into their repertoire.
BackLash show choir is open to middle school students only.
Placement of younger students into this show choir is at the discression of the musical director.
Similar to our BackBeat show choir, BackLash is a positive, energetic environment for middle school students wanting to be challenged and inspired in much the same way their high school counterparts are, but with children their own age. As with BackBeat, class includes a vocal warm-up, team building, and rehearsals of material that will also be shared in our end of semester Learn Love performance. Students will be exposed to hip-hop choreography with our Hip-Hop instructor, making them just as wonderful to watch as BackBeat.
BeatBox show choir is open to students ages 7- 9.
This show choir is the newest BackBeat City Show Choir and is quickly earning a reputation as the place for young talent to develop. This class combines singing and dancing to lay a solid foundation for students as they progress on to both BackLash and BackBeat. This class also takes time to also focus on developing a strong stage presence.
BeBop show choir is open to students ages 4 – 6.
This is BackBeat City’s youngest show choir and is designed for young students who show an interest in singing and dancing at an early age. The emphasis in this class is singing and dancing along with getting young students comfortable with performing in front of an audience.
