Frequently asked questions
How long is programme and how many days a week?
Each Let It Shine programme runs for 10 weeks, one evening midweek (tues or thurs depending on programme) for 2.5 hrs with a full day attendance at the end for showday (Showday is either a friday or sat from approx 1pm-10pm)
Does eveyone sing a solo on Showday?
Yes! We encourage everyone to perform a solo aswell as perform in group numbers. We will work with you over the 10 weeks to make sure you are 100% confident going out on the stage and give your very best performance. If you really don't want to perform alone, we will arrange a group song, BUT, what make this programme different to any other in Ireland is that YOU are given the opportunity to shine, and we really want you to experience that magic on stage so we really do encourage everyone to step into the spotlght and go for it :)
Do I only sing one solo or will I be involved in other things?
Our show will include a number of group numbers with singing and some dancing, solos plus certain solos will require backing singing/chorus so you will be performing in a number of songs/performances. We encourage everyone to get involve din as many numbers as possible to get as much experience as they can. Remember everything will be taught to you by our expert coaches.
Is the programme all about learning songs for the final performance?
Although our Final Show is the culmination of the programme and a lot of the content of the programme is geared towards this show, you will also learn how to get the best out of your voice, improve your stage performance and movement and build your confidence to perform infront of perople.
I don't really want to dance, I just want to sing. Is that ok?
Yes. You are not forced to do anything! While we would encourage you to do some of the moves within the group numbers, our choreographer will work with all abilities and will be able to cater for those who prefer to focus on the vocals. Don't worry, we will work with you to make sure you're happy with what you're doing. If you feel you have 2 left feet we won't have you doing jazz hands at the front!
Who picks the song/solo?
We will work with you to choose a song that you love singing, and one that suits your voice. If you prefer us to choose a new song no problem. We want you to go for it and sing that song you've always dreamed of performing but never had the chance. The final show is variety style so there is no set theme as such. (Please note a backing track must be available for your song of choice so we can have music accompaniment on Showday.)
Do I have to audition?
No... there are no parts as such, everyone gets a lead and their time to shine so no audition needed. We will listen to each voice in the first few sessions to choose the best song that suits your voice but don't worry, if you're nervous about singing in public, we start slow and build your confidence each week so by Showday, there will be no holding back!
Is this for adults or children?
Let It shine is for over 18's only. We figure the kids are well catered for and it's time for the grown up's to have some fun! No age limit - all ages welcome - it's NEVER to late to live your dream.
Where is programmed based?
North county Dublin currently - performance also in Dublin, however depending on numbers and demand we may open a second programme in Dublin South. So if you're interested contact us immediately to find out what spaces we have available as we can only have a maximum of 20 stars! (per programme)
