The three artists will positively impact a new audience of 1,000 people: 400 for Rhythmic Circus; and 300 each for Connie Evingson and Amerikan Poijat. At each performance we will record attendance, ask attendees to complete an evaluation form (which includes age and residence) and have a poster board and post-it note method to measure pre-and post-performance moods. 2: Artists will impart music and dance skills and enthusiasm to 55 youth, including 20 high school choir members and 35 dance studio students. Teachers and choir directors will record attendance at the workshops. They will also complete a survey that includes their evaluation of the experience and a compilation of individual student reactions.
Attendance at Rhythmic Circus exceeded our goal by over 42%, with a sold-out show of 571. The Connie Evingson and Ameriikan Poijat performances hosted audiences of 200 each, attendances below the projected goal of 300 per concert. However, with workshop attendance of 35, we did meet our goal of impacting over 1,000 area residents. 2: Outcome 2 was to provide vocal and dance workshops to 55 students, including choral students and a dance studio. Connie Evingson provided a workshop for 35 choral students at the College. Local high school choirs were invited but did not attend due to transportation costs and tighter restrictions for missing regular classes. In the workshop, Evingson encouraged students to develop their individual styles and discussed what made some of the great jazz artists' styles unique. She described the characteristics present in jazz, demonstrating techniques such as phrasing and rhythm, and concluded the class by listening to the group and soloists perform and offering feedback. The master class by Rhythmic Circus with a local dance studio was cancelled due to changes in Rhythmic Circus' schedule. We invited the dance school to perform with another professional dance company in our schedule. They completed a workshop with the professional dancers and performed a number as part of that program.
