SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - While many people came out to see the different show choirs perform at the Crusader Classic on Saturday, not many see what it takes to put on an elaborate show.

The Westwood Rebelaires have been coming to the Crusader Classic since it began. The group has been working on their show for about 4 months.

Tom Gerking, vocal director at Westwood says it's exciting to see the group get to where they are now.

"Its part of the reason why you teach is to see the growth in each and every student," said Gerking. "And to see the ones, especially the ones that don't have the confidence when we start, and then all of the sudden they get on stage and then all of a sudden they have it and they found it. It's very rewarding for me as a teacher for them as student performers."

Students with the group say they started out the season with teambuilding to get to know each other.

One senior says he was excited to kick his last show choir season off with a bang.

"Probably just not messing up. Giving my best performance, good facials, sharp dance moves. Stuff like that. I want to have a lot of energy and just have a lot of fun because that's what show choir's all about," said Eli Oregon, a senior at Westwood.

The Crusader Classic was the group's first performance of the season.
