Rockvale teachers get chance to show talent

Posted: Updated:
ROCKVALE, TN (WSMV) -

It certainly sounded exciting. It started out as an end-of-the-year talent show skit for the students.

But now the teachers who created the "Glow-Stick Girls" have discovered their act is going national.

America's Got Talent asked them to audition for the TV show Thursday in Nashville.

There are 15 teachers at Rockvale Elementary School that came up with a cute little skit to surprise the kids at the school talent show last year.

The Glow-Stick Girls then went on to win the Rutherford County talent show.

As the YouTube video got more and more popular, it seemed over until the phone rang at the school.

They got a call on Nov. 30, asking them to audition for America's Got Talent.

The teachers had just 13 days to prepare. Who would have ever thought librarians, secretaries and parents would all be scrambling to come up with a better glow-stick costume.

They had 13 days to come up with a dance that will win judges over.

These aren't professional dancers, just a group of fun-loving dedicated teachers who age between 25 and 52 years old.

Of course, during all this time, the teachers are not just performing, they are teaching.

Thursday's audition in Nashville is for producers only. If they pass the producers, round two is on national TV here on Channel 4.

The group also had to change its name and they added a male teacher. No more Glow-Stick Girls - now it's Rhythm Education.
