PRE-EXPO GROUP MEETING
This is not required, but we HIGHLY RECOMMEND you meet with your EXPO group prior to boarding the plane or loading the car. This way, together, you can go through all of this information, review rules, plan for certain things, and so on.
We are asking each branch to send us a video to introduce yourself! Let us know where you are from, who you are, and give a shout out to the Nation! Keep these videos short (no longer than 20 seconds), with high energy and movement. We will be compiling the videos together for our opening morning, so note that yours may be cut down to make sure we can fit everyone in. Email your video to email@example.com
by May 15th!
What better way to showcase the Nation than with a SHOWCASE! Each branch will provide one musical number (up to 3 minutes, must be on a track, and a CYT approved song). You can do WHATEVER YOU WANT for this number! You can have a group perform, or you can have a soloist represent your city. You can coordinate your outfits, or do full out costumes. The idea is that we have a wonderful night of entertainment, put on by YOU and your fellow CYT family. Perhaps you can perform a number from your CYT year! The only rule is that whoever performs must be a registered EXPO attendee. The showcase will end with all students singing a finale number together. (note: Branches will be given some “stage time” prior to the National Showcase in order to stage their number, but be sure to come to EXPO with your number complete, as time for this will be limited.) Email your song choice and track to firstname.lastname@example.org
by May 15th. (First come, first served on the song choice!)
Last year at EXPO we sang along to the Broadway Newsies
. This year, we want to sing along with a show most branches have done - Seussical the Musical
! We are asking for branch leadership to submit videos of their most recent Seussical by May 15
so we can create a CYT Seuss! If you have done the show more than once, please send us the most recent version you have recorded. If you have never done the show, that's ok! If you have your show digitally, please email a link to Rachael@cyt.org
. If you have a hard copy, please mail it to our office.
WHAT TO PACK
Be prepared for warm days and cool nights! We are right on the bay so sweatshirts may be needed. Don’t forget to cover your skin in sunscreen for that San Diego summer sun!
