Who Runs the World? ... That's right. We do! During physical warm-ups, Moria (Choreography Chair) began teaching us an empowered and lively routine set to the song Run The World (Girls) by Beyoncé. We will continue learning the routine next week. If you are practicing at home, there are 12 sets of an 8 count before the routine starts. Take the whole 12 set of 8 to get to "your spot" in the line.
Tag Time! We sang Smile as our warm-up tag. We talked about how to find your first note to any song. There are several ways to find your first note. This is a skill that comes with time and practice. Use the learning tracks, sheet music, or our music leaders to find the best way for you. Be diligent and memorize how you are going to find your first note. With time it will become automatic.
Winter Wonderland: Leads remember to sing the first note of the phrase "In the meadow we can build a snow man." as well as the next phrase as if you are sing the first note the same as the highest note of the phrase, "build".
Let There Be Peace On Earth: It's a waltz; feel the 1, 2, 3 as you sing. This will keep the tempo from slowing down. Sing this one as smoothly (a.k.a. legato) as possible.
