*****THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED. OUR WINNER IS MELISSA COLE*****
Smarties, we introduced you to the amazing Caroline Calouche of Caroline Calouche & Co.(CC&Co.) this past weekend. Caroline and her team at CC&Co. are working around the clock to get their spring production ready: Star Gazer: A Trek Into Outer Space. This spectacular show is next weekend, April 21-23 at Booth Playhouse. In typical Smarty style, we have a giveaway for you so that you and your family can enjoy an evening of fun – perfect to wrap up your #SpringBreak2017!
Star Gazer: A Trek Into Outer Space combines dance and circus arts with powerful visual projections of planets, comets and asteroids to fly you through our solar system. Stella is a young and curious girl who gazes out her bedroom window one night at the stars and the moon wondering what it would be like to visit the other planets. This simple notion leads to a spectacular, often thrilling, performance by the southeast’s premier dance and circus arts company, Caroline Calouche & Co., April 21 – 23 at the Booth Playhouse.
The multi-media Star Gazer will have audiences spellbound as Stella (Zoe Flowers, one of Charlotte’s brightest young talents) explores the mountains of Mars and dancers soar on roller skates around the rings of Saturn. Jennifer and Patrick O’Kelly of O’Kelly Design Studios, working in collaboration with Carolina Calouche, have created breathtaking still and video images that will accompany the performances to transport audiences through the solar system. Musical selections during the program will include selections from Gusav Holst’s ‘The Planets’ and other classical and contemporary composers to accompany the breath-taking and dramatic scenes.
Star Gazer is supported, in part, by the Arts & Science Council – Charlotte/Mecklenburg, Inc. and the North Carolina Arts Council as well as media sponsor WFAE.

About Caroline Calouche & Co.:
Founded in 2005, Caroline Calouche & Co. (CC&Co.) has evolved from years of independent choreography and performance in the U.S. and Europe to become the southeast’s largest dance and circus arts performing organization. CC&Co. annually produces dozens of performances in Charlotte and throughout the region and conducts classes throughout the years for both children and adults.
Since 2005 when Caroline Calouche debuted Risk along with a small group of three dancers in her hometown of Gastonia, North Carolina, the company has performed in South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Texas. Over the years Caroline Calouche continued to expand her explorations of blending contemporary dance with aerial dance in harness and fabric. The aerial performances pushed CC&Co.s’ innovative, entertaining, sometimes edgy, work to a whole new level.
While CC&Co. continues to expand its season of performances, touring schedule, classes and summer camps, the organization continues to connect to its home base of Charlotte and its surrounding communities through outreach programs in all age, ethnic and social groups.
Caroline Calouche & Co. is a non-profit organization formed with the mission of creating, producing and promoting contemporary dance choreography in conjunction with multi-disciplinary artistic collaborations. The goal is to build cross-cultural dialogues with dance as a means to unite and educate the global community through an exchange of philosophies and methods.
