It's what lots of young music lovers like to sing and dance about.
"I'm just really passionate about music, and it's a great program. You get to meet so many new people and have so much fun," said Kaitlynn Kelley of Sioux City East.
On Saturday, Sioux City East High School hosted its "21st Annual Sing All About It" Show choir competition.
Fourteen high schools from Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota, danced and sung their way to be named "Grand Champion", a title that some say isn't easy to earn.
"You have to be in shape to do the kind of dancing these kids do. And to sing at the same time, perform, it is absolutely an athletic competition all day long," said Serinea Jolivette, Director of Choral Activities at Sioux City East.
"Some people think it's not real dancing, not as much work, but it's still quite a bit of work. You're with a big group, so it's harder to keep clean and looking good," said Tara Den Herder of Sioux Center High School.
Whether they were from a big or small school, size didn't matter or stop some teams from wanting to get to the top.
"It's kind of hard being from a small school, but I definitely think we have what it takes to make it to finals," said Holly Pinney of Hinton High School.
But students said it was all friendly competition.
At the end of the day, they all share the same love, a love of music and dance.
