SIDE BY SIDE: DIGITAL
THE 2020 DIGITAL JOURNEY
Our first digital Side by Side
Each day, you will be able join what happens on the platform, dance, compete, challenge yourself, be inspired, and practice your instrument. And of course chat with your fellow camp participants.More content will be added every day and on Monday, your mission will also be to record your contribution to Circle of Life, for a chance to become a part of Side by Side’s own digital orchestra. Maybe we will even break a world record!The days are planned so that you can either follow our schedule or take part of the content in your own time. Some challenges and exercises may require a bit of extra time, but you will not be required to stay by your computer 8 am to 5 pm every day.
13–16 June, 2020
The camp started on Saturday, June 13 and ended with Festival Concert on Tuesday, June 16.Participants were able to register on the platform and complete their profiles in advance, starting on Wednesday, June 10.After camp, the content is available on the platform over the summer in case you wish to revisit for example an instruction video
AUTOMATIC AND OPEN INVITE
If you had already been admitted to the regular Side by Side camp, you did not need to sign up or apply again! You were able to register on the platform with the help of your booking number and email address.If you were on the waiting list, you were also welcome to Side by Side: Digital! You too received information closer to camp and were able to register on the platform using your booking number and email address.
You who had not previously signed up to Side by Side had the chance to sign up for this digital camp, and many did.
TRACKS & REPERTOIRE
Instead of our regular tracks, there were two orchestra tracks, EASY ORCHESTRA and CHALLENGING ORCHESTRA, and the choir track CHOIR for all singers.The repertoire consist of Circle of Life from Disney’s The Lion King in two difficulty levels, and few surprises here and there.Your main task, musically speaking, during camp was to practice your part, rehearse a concert version of Circle of Life, film yourself, and upload the video to join FESTIVAL CONCERT, which was broadcasted on June 16 at 3 pm.
GROUPS COULD PARTICIPATE TOO!
If gathering in small groups was something you could do while following the current restrictions in your area, we suggested that you do so on Monday and Tuesday, 15-16 June. All the content from Saturday and Sunday was available then, as well as completely new content, so that you could fill your camp days to the brim together!You could also combine individual participation during the weekend, with group activities at the start of the week. Highlights during Monday and Tuesday included the dress rehearsal, Danceoke, and a workshop in Body Percussion.You were many who filmed your activities uploaded them on the platform for the chance to be a part of Side by Side history! Monday’s dress rehearsal provided an opportunity to film and submit your contributions to Circle of Life and you could end the camp together on Tuesday by watching the ”grand finale”, Festival Concert!
