Next the students will have to prepare for meals and personal
expenses not included in their package. They will have to budget their
money so that it will not be depleted before the end of the trip. They
will need to figure tax and gratuities at each meal and make wise food choices
As they prepare for the contest or performance day, they must
pack their day bags with all costume and prop pieces and inventory each item as
it is going in and out. They will also need to remember hair care items
and makeup that will be required for their performance. If they are wise,
they will also pack a back up to tights, socks, hair scrunchies, safety pins,
trunks and more. This way if an item is lost or misplaced (as it can do in
a room of four girls), there will be a back up.
Students will also learn courtesy and poise as they are
introduced to new people and greeting those who are in charge of the event.
They should speak confidently when introduced and extend the courtesy of a hand
shake when meeting special persons.
