Bettendorf show choirs prep for the Big Dance

While many students will be attending the Turnabout dance this Saturday, show choir students will be doing a different kind of dancing. Surround Sound and its prep group, Audio Intensity, will perform at their first competition of the season this weekend.

Preparing for a show of this magnitude takes months to put together.

“We practice four to five hours a week before competition season, but during competition season it can get up to seven hours,” Surround Sound junior Kailey Baxter said.

Performers face multiple challenges going into the weekend.

“The hardest part is finding notes on stage while standing away from people with your part,” said Audio Intensity freshman Veronika Larson.
