In 2012, the annual Fringe Festival was kicked off with a large scale
unlike anything Philadelphia had seen before. One hundred and fifty
residents of all ages and dance backgrounds assembled at the foot of the
Philadelphia Art Museum steps, donned in the outfits of their choice, twirling
into a rhythmic human kaleidoscope. Le Grand Continental® was a joyous and
intoxicating dance spectacle, one that united people from across Philadelphia's
diverse communities and was praised by The Inquirer as "fantastic, a
festive opening ceremony" for the Festival.

Celebrated for the elegance and finesse of his choreography, Montreal's Sylvain
Émard is the mastermind behind this acclaimed work. Since its first hometown
production in 2009 it has traveled across the globe, gathering together
hundreds of dance enthusiasts to perform its sensational choreography,
combining festive line dancing with the fluidity and expressiveness of
contemporary dance.

This year, the Fringe Festival will be ushered in once again with
Émard's unifying
work, but with one key difference. As the title Le Super Grand Continental
suggests, this time around Émard and his team are doing it bigger and are
looking to gather 200 dancers to realize this remarkable performance. We
hope that you'll be one of them!

No prior experience is necessary to be a part of Le Super Grand Continental,
just enthusiasm and a love of dance. A good sense of rhythm and
coordination is recommended. Auditions last the full two hours during which
time you'll be led through some of the piece's choreography by members of
the production team. Dress comfortably and bring some water. Just fill out
this form <https://goo.gl/forms/jW0u8yHprbo0rTvi1> to confirm your audition

The first phase of rehearsals takes place two nights a week, June 25 through
 July 3. During these weeks there will be a Monday/Wednesday rehearsal
group and a Tuesday/Thursday group. From July 10 until the premiere on
8 the entire cast will come together for two weeknights a week to rehearse.
It is important that you commit to the entire rehearsal process. Your
attendance at each rehearsal is compulsory. All participants will receive a
travel stipend for their participation.
