    Lynne is a wonderful teacher. She takes an interest in every student personally. My daughter loves going to class and has grown “leaps” and bounds in her skill and technique.

How did you get started teaching?

The Silhouettes Director and instructors began teaching because of their love of children and also their love of teaching.  The ability to share their many talents with children, teens and adults is what drives them to the highest level of excellence. To see the light go on in the students eye when they understand the expectations, step or performance is truly the greatest moment in time!


What types of students have you worked with?

The Silhouettes has worked with thousands of artists and have seen many go on to perform in film, television and on Broadway!  We begin training at age 3 with our "Growing Your Wings' program and continue to offer training and performance opportunities for children, teens and adults.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The Silhouettes performed as contestants on America's Got Talent 2011 placing 1st Runner-Up and again as guest artists on the America's Got Talent Finale 2016. These were truly memorable experiences that offered a performance opportunity for 24 cast members from The Silhouettes that they will never forget!  This is the 10th time we have appeared on America's Got Talent and we are truly honored for this opportunity. Performance link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZ5JGVFiHTw

We also performed on the NBC America's Got Talent Holiday Spectacular in December 2016 and had the honor of performing at the Presidential Inaugural Liberty Ball to honor the American Heroes who helped shape this great country!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

If you would like to spread your wings and fly, The Silhouettes Training Program is the place for you/your child!

  We are a non-competitive, positive training environment that offers the student/cast member full training in the performing arts.  When you walk through the doors of The Silhouettes... your future begins!


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

After all, we were just a small performing arts studio in Arvada, CO and America's Got Talent launched us onto worldwide television. Therefore, we always say... "DREAM BIG"!!!
