Chicaagoland Summer Show Choir Camp - The Rising Stars

The Rising Stars Showchoir Workshop (a division of SHINE!, LLC) began as a week-long summer workshop for middle school students in the Chicagoland area in 1996. Their goal was to provide a positive environment for young people who wish to explore and develop their skill in singing, dancing, and performing during the summer. Gradually, new age groups and divisions were created, our staff expanded, and additional sessions were added so we could share our love of music with as many young lives as possible.

Each summer, The Rising Stars® offers show choir camps for students across the Chicagoland area.  The camps are scheduled for 2 sessions this summer.  Each session is another week of music and learning a new show, and another opportunity to meet other students in the Chicagoland area who love to sing and dance just like you!

NEW THIS YEAR!  We will be determining our age divisions based on enrollment (rather than automatically, by age/grade).  Doing this will simplify the registration process on your end (just choose the timing of your child’s age/grade…so if your child is entering 2nd grade you will choose the PM session, and if your child is entering 8th grade you will choose the AM session, etc.).  We will place your child in a group with others who are the same age.  
Like always, our WEES will be our youngest performers, followed by our MINIS, and then our YOUNGS, our JUNIORS (junior high) and our SENIORS (high school).  However, if we are heavy on a certain grade level, this gives us some control and flexibility so we can attempt to keep the age divisions as even as possible (or at the correct capacity for the age group).  We do not anticipate any change at all (from our traditional age divisions), but any adjustments to age divisions will be minor and an attempt to maintain reasonable show choir class sizes while admitting as many participants to Rising Stars as we can.
