The event, hosted by Columbia Association’s (CA) KidSpace, will allow youth to show their stuff, whether they are singers, dancers, musicians or have other talents, including hand clapping/feet stomping, extreme hula hooping, double-dutch jump roping, gymnastics, native dance, and collaborative performances such as bands, singing groups and dancing groups.
Space is limited, so contestants should register now through Jan. 8 at one of CA’s three KidSpace locations: Columbia Athletic Club (5435 Beaverkill Road, 410-730-6755), Columbia Gym (6151 Daylong Lane, 410-531-8984) and Supreme Sports Club (7080 Deepage Drive, 410-381-7559). Performers are then required to attend auditions on Saturday, Jan. 12, from 8 to 10 a.m. at Columbia Gym. Walk-ins will be allowed at auditions. A continental breakfast will be provided.
Performers should bring their entourages to the auditions, as fans there will vote for their favorites, and those votes will select the 20 finalists. The finalists will then be showcased at the Starlicious Talent Show on Friday, Feb. 8, from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at Columbia Gym’s Youth Arena. Talents who make it to the finale will be provided with free admission for the Starlicious Talent Show for themselves and one parent or guardian. Starlicious Talent Show winners will be awarded personalized trophies, and finalists will receive award certificates signed by CA President Phil Nelson.
Starlicious Talent Show will also include several special features, including a halftime show with raffled door prizes, a Fan Club merchandise booth, a VIP booth, concession stands and more. Tickets will be available at the door: $5 for adults and $2 for children between the ages of 3 and 13.
