 The St. C Singers Dance-a-Thon
The 1st Annual St. C Singers Dance-a-Thon will be held on Monday December 16th, 2019 from 7-9pm in the St. Clairsville High School Cafetorium. The Dance-a-Thon is an important fundraiser for the students in Show Choir! The money you pledge will be used to fund the individual students trip to Disney World in March to perform their show and attend Disney Workshops: Disney Sings & Disney Instrumental Performance. They have the opportunity to be instructed by Disney Professionals in the Disney Performance Studio. We want every student to have this experience, so this fundraiser will be key to helping them achieve this goal. Our intent is for each student to raise an average pledge of $25 per every 1 hour danced from family, friends and local businesses. Of course you can sponsor your favorite St. C Singer by pledging any amount. Donations are due by Friday December 13th. See your favorite St. C Singer to make your pledge! Thank you for your support!

Our program is completely funded by the hard work of our parents and boosters organization. They work throughout the year to raise funds so that our kids get the opportunity to do this awesome extracurricular activity. It is a big undertaking to raise the funds for costumes, alterations, sets, lights, sound, equipment, music licensing & arrangement, choreography, charter bus transportation to the shows, entry fees, etc. Every year they need to raise more than $50,000 to keep the St.C. Singers Show Choir competing. Your generosity of any donation amount is greatly appreciated!

“Shadows into the Light”
The 2018-2019 show is called “Shadows into the Light.”
We take you on a journey from dark shadows that cloud your mind, like fear, confusion, and despair and move throughout the show into the “light.” The light of kindness, love, and compassion. This year you can see the Singers in action locally on February 23rd at the St. C. DIII Show Choir Invitational at Buckeye Local High School. Groups from West Virginia, Indiana and Ohio will compete, and the St.C. Singers will perform as the host choir.
