Talent search urges youngsters to try achieve dreamsa

Written byROB SMYTH

A SEARCH has been launched to find a host of top talents in Burton and South Derbyshire.

Talent INC, which is a UK training and mentoring program for actors, singers, dancers and models of all ages, is heading to Mere Green Community Centre in Birmingham on Saturday to find the area’s best singers, dancers, actors, performers and models.

Those who are successful could get the chance of showcasing their talents on board the Royal Caribbean cruise ship, Independence of the Seas.

Dorinda Duncan, executive director of Talent INC UK, said: “These are just a small example of the way Talent INC opens doors and provides opportunities.

“Our UK talent have all signed with agents across the UK and US being promoted for professional work.

“The search is about to start and we’re looking for talent destined for success.

“If you’ve got the talent then why not audition.

“This is an opportunity for models, actors, dancers and singers to learn from the best tutors, showcase their talents and network with industry leaders that can directly influence your career.

“Talent INC UK was born from the idea of making careers for entertainers more accessible.

“Through intensive training and the national conference you will be prepared to present to leading agencies and casting directors.

“Those attending the workshop may have a chance to be selected to participate in the internationally acclaimed, Talent INC Showcase, now celebrating its 10th successful year.

“Those who are selected will be educated with more than 20 hours of intense training to perform in front of the most influential American and UK agents, managers, and directors in the industry.

“The team travel across the country every year searching for the next big star with it being open to ages four and above with star quality.”

Last year, Nena McCartney, from Newhall, took part in the talent showcase.

She will now be spending this summer in New York working with Patrick Management & FFT Management in a bid to try and find fame and fortune.

Her mum, Michelle, said: “I am the Birmingham area director. My daughter Nena went through the programme last year and as a result of the wonderful work that was done with her, I have taken on this role to help other new talents.”

Another success story is Mackenzie Sol who signed with leading agents Osbrink and manager Patrick Management.

He has had general meetings with Disney and Nickelodeon and has had discussions with Scooter Braun who is the mastermind behind pop sensation Justin Bieber.

He is currently in LA for pilot season he is auditioning for television and film roles.

Anyone who thinks they have got what it takes is being urged to call Michelle on 07758 193477 or email m_mccartney@live.co.uk
