Kids put their singing and dancing on the line in citywide talent show
The singing and dancing of Federal Way children was in the spotlight during the second annual, citywide Talent Show.
The event was produced by the citys Youth Commission and held March 31 at Knutzen Family Theatre.
In the first through fifth-grade category, Eunjoo Lee, a fifth-grader, took first for Fantisie-impromptu on the piano; the Xtreme Team dance troupe, made up of 13 fourth through sixth-graders, took second; and Jon-Marshall Sweers, a fifth-grader, took third with a Peanuts Medley performance on piano.
In the sixth through 12th-grade category, Aleigha Wood, a 10th-grader, placed first with her vocal performance of Just You Wait from My Fair Lady; Eric Belvin, an eighth-grader, finished second with Beethovens Sonata Opus 10 #1 on piano; and senior Michelle Stone captured third place with Bachs Toccata in D Minor on piano.
This year was the first time the Youth Commission had to turn away applicants who wanted to perform in the talent show, according to Aaron Moe, the city coordinator who works with the commission.
Thirty-eight applicants tried out for the show, and the commission chose 20.
It was awesome, Moe said. We had a full house.
