Even though social distancing has temporarily suspended dance and workshop classes at the Spring Lake Community House & Theatre, nothing can hold these students back from performing! Last week the Spring Community House’s Theatre and Dance program hosted a virtual talent show titled “SLTD’s Got Talent”. Students were encouraged to dance, sing, play an instrument, or anything else that best showcased their talents in the arts. The talent show was conceived as part of the Community House’s continued efforts to engage with their students in this time while students are removed from their classrooms and forced to learn from home. By the time voting for the talent show closed on Sunday at 8:00pm, 29 talented young artists from Spring Lake, Wall, Avon, Point Pleasant, Brielle, Red Bank, and beyond had submitted their acts. In addition to singing, dancing, and playing instruments, some students took their creativity to the next level. Students performed comedy, magic, and long-distance duets. Some used special effects, props, and set pieces to elevate their performance. Although classes are suspended for the time being to ensure the safety of students and staff, the students will still have an opportunity to perform the productions they have been working on when the Community House doors reopen. The students can not wait to return to the stage and perform in various shows including The Drowsy Chaperone, Godspell, Lion King Jr. and many others. Stay tuned for performance dates and times!
