Cleveleys has talent!
Added 2 April 2011
Britain Does Variety is touring the nation in an effort to find Britain’s REAL talent and local act Jordana Armstead from Anchorsholme sailed through auditions in Blackpool and is now going to appear in a live show at Blackpool’s famous Winter Gardens Opera House on Saturday 30th April!!
Jordana is 14 years old and attends Montgomery High School in Bispham, and previous to that she went to St Teresas Primary School in Cleveleys.
She has been dancing since she was 2 years old at Sylvia Conway Dance Academy on Anchorsholme Lane Cleveleys. She also attends Michael Hall Theatre School where she has singing lessons. She would like to attend a Performing Arts School in London when she finishes school.
From Beatboxers to Ventriloquists, Comedians to Mime Artists, Animal Acts to Magicians, Contortionists to Glee Clubs, Dancers to Jugglers … weird acts, crazy acts … Britain Does Variety aims to put variety back in our theatres but they’ve not only been looking for the more traditional ‘old school’ variety acts but aim to bring things bang up-to-date with modern, innovative acts that deliver both variety AND entertainment … and they don’t aim to be showcasing the ‘car crash’ acts though … just the REAL talent!
Acts are now appearing in their local regional final where the very best acts, as decided by the audience and a panel of judges made up of celebrities and industry professionals, will make it through to the National Grand Final in June to compete for a whole host of prizes including the chance to play the O2 Indigo (the same venue where Alexandra Burke, Ne-Yo and The Who have all performed) as well as the chance for at least one act to be showcased in front of the entertainment directors of some of the world’s biggest and most prestigious cruise lines!
The National Grand Finals will take place on 11th June 2011 at The Lighthouse Theatre in Kettering, chosen not only for its location and accessibility, but also for its state-of-the-art facilities that will help ensure all acts have the very best platform on which to showcase their talent.
