Summer Bootcamp

Inspired by its success with the STEM Rocks the Box project, Shadowbox Live® has implemented the Shadowbox Live® Summer Rock Arts Bootcamp; a three-week arts intensive program for students ages 15 to 21 interested in exploring a career in the performing arts. In today’s market, it is imperative that artists master/explore more than one artistic discipline. The idea of a “triple threat” is no longer an exception. It’s a standard. Bootcamp participants attend master classes in all four disciplines of the Rock Arts: singing, dancing, acting and musicianship, as well as arts administration, fiscal responsibility, wellness and professionalism.

Students will be required to fill out an application and will audition in all four disciplines in order to be considered for the program.

Audition Preparation

For the audition, we will assess everyone in all four areas (music, acting, vocals and dance.) We do not expect everyone to perform all of these disciplines well! We just ask that you try your best with the material given. Based on the audition, those of you accepted will be assigned majors or minors in the four disciplines so that instruction is commensurate with your level of ability.
