Best Practices for Recording Videos

  • Wear a Curtain Call or solid color t-shirt if possible!

  • Think about your space. What is behind you or around you? Do you have enough room to do what you need to do? 

  • Think about your light. Can we see your face? Play around with using lamps in your room.

  • When you are singing - remember what we practice in voice class! Think about volume, diction, pitch. Focus staying on beat. If you are video recording - tell the story with your face!

  • When you are dancing - remember what we practice in dance class! Make BIG movements, be brave, use your entire face and body to tell the story. What is your "why" of dancing?

You are welcome to submit videos/materials in one, some or all of the categories! Have fun!
