Students perform at annual show
Lansing Elementary and Intermediate School students strutted their stuff onstage at the annual PTA talent show Tuesday in the LIS auditorium.
A total of 34 acts performed, said Connie Evans, the organizer of the event. Of those, most were musical acts, including singers, pianists and a trumpet player. A variety of other types of skits, such as a jump rope routine, freestyle breakdancing and tae kwon do and judo demonstrations, were sprinkled throughout the evening of events.
Acts were limited to two minutes, and students could only be in two acts. Evans said the restrictions kept the show's running time manageable.
The show was free, and the auditorium was about three-quarters full of performers' families.
Evans said the attendance this year was lower than last year, but she thought the students performed well.
"I think the kids always give 100 percent of themselves for the show," Evans, who has produced the show for eight years, said. "It takes a lot of nerve to get on a stage and perform something."
