2022 GCAPA Silhouettes

So you want to be a Silhouette!  The glitz, the glam, the shoes!!!
It sounds like fun, but in reality the performances of a Silhouette are the reward for the hard work that it takes to learn the choreography, perfect the formations, and then start all over by doing it in the shoes!  If you're interested in becoming a Silhouette, read on.
1. Level 6 and Level 7 dancers who are enrolled in 2 Ballet classes, 1 Jazz class, and 1 Lyrical class.
2. Enroll in the Silhouettes Boot Camp held August 8-12, 2022, 5-8pm.
3. Know the routines!  There are several opportunities to learn the choreography for the Silhouettes.  You can either take the "Future Silhouettes" Summer Camps where two routines per week are taught by actual Silhouettes or learn the choreography on Thinkific where it is not broken down.  
4. Requirements:
  • Must know the choreography for each routine performing.
  • Must be able to kick eye-high with a straight supporting leg and straight back while arms are behind back.
  • Must attend the Boot Camp for all 5 nights.
  • Must attend additional rehearsals as listed on the Google Calendar.
5. All new Silhouettes will endure an audition-like process to determine which routines in which they will participate.  This process will cover kicks and choreography.
6. Silhouettes Boot Camp is not for learning routines.  It is for determining the placement of the line and all of the transitions and placements that come as a result of the line.  Line is determined strictly by height.

****Please note that Performance Troupe/Silhouettes has NOTHING to do with the Christmas Parade as they are two entirely separate activities.****
