Verda Slinkard, director of several award winning show choirs in Indiana, and Shawn Eck, award winning choreographer, have teamed together to offer the
Rising Star Show Choir Camp! This amazing team has worked together for 14 years creating award winning, high-energy competition shows. Through the Rising Star
experience, you and your students will have the opportunity to work with these award-winning personalities one-on-one and learn the tricks of the trade. Your dance
captains will benefit from a special clinic with Shawn focused on cleaning and teaching techniques. Your soloists will gain confidence as they go through Verda's audition for a
chance to be featured in the live performance Friday night.

The Rising Star fee per student is only $150 if registered by May 1st.  After this date, the fee increases to $175. This fee includes the workshops, performance T-shirt, sheet music, accompanist, Friday night's pizza buffet, and live stage performance. Students will learn 3 choreographed numbers and a staged ballad to perform in front of a live audience Friday night. Directors are also welcome to attend the camp at no cost.

Students must provide their own lunch and transportation each day. The guys will need to have jeans for the final performance and the ladies should wear black shorts. Rising Star will provide the performance T-shirt, 4 pieces of published music, and a copy of BUSTALK Magazine! In addition, we will host a pizza buffet for the students prior to the performance Friday night.  An application form is attached.  Please feel free to duplicate as many as you need.  Please make note on the form if the student is a dance captain or intends to audition for a solo.
