Audition To Be the InterContinental's Dancing Silhouette Saturday

In a city where couples break out stellar salsa in dive bars and backyards, it's obvious that Miami is rhythmically gifted. For those of you breaking down at clubs and parties, now's your chance to snatch some real recognition for your remarkable moves.

The InterContinental Miami is once again searching for its next skyline star -- the badass dancer that will grace the side of the 100 Chopin Plaza building, lit up in glowing glory. Auditions to be the next silhouette start this Saturday, and judges are looking for Miami's best.

Like last year's competition, both male and female dancers are eligible -- Jay Marcos took the top spot in 2013. Dance hopefuls just need to be 18 years old or older. Judges are looking for for dancers who are passionate about dance and the city.

Dancers will also need to be able to dance in a small space with mostly upright/vertical dance moves, as the hotel's 200-foot digital canvas is long and tall, something dancers need to keep in mind.

Judges include Jane Castro from VH1, along with Ana Gonzalez from the National YoungArts Foundation, and last year's winner, Jay Marcos. Music will be provided during the open call auditions, but dancers need to bring their own music in case they make it to the finals.

Open call tryouts begin Saturday, November 22 from 9 a.m. to noon at the InterContinental Miami; Finals will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. RSVP at icmiamihotel.com
