The search is on as the Audacious Youth Church (AYC) and Salford City Academy set out to find the stars of tomorrow.
Running as the ‘Urban Talent Academy,’ the new venture starts this week, with young entertainers encouraged to develop their talents in the Peel Green school’s dance studio and main hall.
From singing and dancing through to acting and rapping, the team from the AYC will help those attending to nurture their talents, preparing the students for auditions for a ‘Live Final’ competition to be held on the 18th March and which will feature winners and runner’s up from schools across Greater Manchester.
The overall winner will then have the opportunity to create their own ‘artist’s’ portfolio, be it recording a song if they are a singer or filming a video if they are an actor or dancer.
Commented Salford City Academy’s Acting Executive Principal Kieran Larkin:
“This is a fantastic opportunity to help encourage and nurture new talent and we wish all those taking part the very best of luck.”
