Showbacks at Little Sound Pop Academy!

Showbacks at Little Sound Pop Academy!

At Sound Pop Academy, we’re all about helping our members become more confident performers. This year, to help our Little Sound Pop Academy members work towards this, we introduced our Showbacks. Today, we wanted to share more about our Little Sound Pop Academy Showbacks and why we love them.

But first, what is Little Sound Pop Academy?

Little Sound Pop Academy is our group for 6-8 year olds. We’ve been running this group for almost two years, after officially launching in September 2021. Our sessions are designed to build confidence and develop performance skills. But, most importantly, they’re for our youngest members to have loads of fun singing and dancing.

If you know anything about Sound Pop Academy, you might know that our older Sound Pop Academy members regularly perform at events around the South Coast. We know that our members love the performance opportunities they get at Sound Pop Academy. But we also know that it can be overwhelming for younger or less confident members.

With that in mind, we wanted to find a way to help our youngest members gain confidence performing in a really safe and supportive way. That was when we came up with the idea of our Sound Pop Academy Showbacks.

We hold a Showback at each academy once a term. At this session, we invite members’ families and friends to watch them perform the songs they’ve been learning. It gives our members a chance to develop into more confident performers, work on all the skills we’ve been practising at sessions (like moving in time to the music), and gives parents and guardians a glimpse into what we have been learning.

So far this year, we’ve had two Showbacks; one at Christmas, and, one a few weeks ago, at Easter. We’ve been so proud to watch how much our members have developed in this time. And it has been amazing to see all our members’ amazingly supportive parents and guardians come and watch.

What’s next for Little Sound Pop Academy?

This term, we’re super excited to be working towards our Summer Theatre Show! This will bring our Little Sound Pop Academy members from our four academies together for the first time. We can’t wait for our members to put everything they’ve learnt from their Showbacks into practice.

Our Summer Theatre Show is taking place at MAST Mayflower Studios in Southampton, and for many of our members, it will be their first taste of performing in a theatre. We’re going to be working really hard this term to make sure our members are ready. We can’t wait to get started at our sessions this week!
