This is it, folks. This night is the culmination of 3 months of intense rehearsals and a lot of hard work. Keep that in mind when you step out onto the field. We all need to work together as a team, and perform to the best of our ability. You know what it takes to do your best, and now is not the time to hold back. When you step off the field at the end of the performance, you should be overwhelmed with a sense of pride. The fact that you wowed both the audience and the judges, and you did the best you could possibly do is a great feeling and one that you will remember for the rest of your life.
Tonight’s show is in your hands! Make it count! – Mr. Schoenherr
Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends
Our hearts were ringing
In the key that our souls were singing.
As we danced in the night,
Remember how the stars stole the night away
