This weekend was the finals of St Helens Got Talent 2017 and there was many performances from students of StagePro Academy.
In the finals we had singers Harry Wheeler, Maisie Brooks and Emily Smith and dancing we had APEX (Street Crew), SP Elite (Commercial Team), Callum Armstrong (Solo Dancer) and Holly Selby (Solo Dancer).
The standard was absolutely incredible but the night went to StagePro Academy who stole the show.
APEX gaining 1st pace in performance category
SP Elite gaining 2nd place in performance category
Holly Selby gaining 3rd place in performance category
Emily Smith gaining 1st place in senior singing category
Emily Smith who is taught by vocal coach Joanne Edwards at StagePro Studios in Warrington, was reluctant to enter the competition as its something very new to her. After being advised and gaining the confidence to do so, entering St Helen’s Got Talent proved it was the right choice as she only went and WON !!!
Holly Selby choreographed her own routine herself and blew the judges away with a stunning contemporary / lyrical routine that had audience members feeling emotional.
SP Elite had an incredible reaction on the night and brought the audience to their feet. Not only a was it a powerful routine but full of character and energy that received an ovation on the night.
APEX who are a strong street dance team, hit the stage with one of their latest competition routines and the 10 girls absolutely smashed it. The performance was energetic, entertaining and very polished which grabbed them that top spot on the night and a stunning glass engraved trophy.
The night was not over yet, last years Winners HEARTBEAT who are also a team from StagePro Academy did a performance showcase and displayed why they were indeed last years winners. Its was absolutely incredible and the audience roared and cheered. An incredible night for StagePro Academy Theatre Arts.
StagePro Academy would like to thank the organisers of the community competition / Showcase. Its was a fantastic night that gives the children something to aim for and be apart of.
