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
I just let the music come from my soul
So all of my people can stay on the floor!
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
