CREATIVE PROCESS - I can clearly define the steps that represent my creative work from conception/first rehearsal to the final performance.

PERFORMANCE - I can adequately prepare/rehearse my performance piece so that the final performance represents my best effort and reflects skills I've learned.

ETIQUETTE - I can clearly express the important rules of performance etiquette as they apply to audience members at a performance, performers involved in rehearsals, and performers participating in a performance with others.
