        Tips for Talent Show Success 
        • Take a unique skill or ability you already have and improve on it. 
        • Cater to your strengths as a performer. This will help you feel more comfortable when you perform and more confident. 
        • Dress to impress - come up with a unique costume that ties into your act or dress to attract the judge's eye.  
        • Include stage props. Stage props can be as simple as a microphone stand or as complex as confetti raining down from the rafters of the theater.  
        • Get the audience involved in your act. Often, appealing to your audience will help to get them on your side and impress the judges.  
        • Practice in front of a mirror.  Do a mock performance for a group of family and friends. Receive feedback and improve your act. 
        • After you perform for family and friends, you should ask them for feedback and listen patiently to what they have to say. 
        • Be prepared on the day of the talent show.
        • Perform with passion and attitude.
