The Just Be You Performing Arts Triple-Threat Talent Contest debuted live during our inaugural film festival on Saturday, September 29, 2018 in Bound Brook, New Jersey. Contestants from both the United States and Internationally competed in three performing arts genres: acting, singing and dancing.
Created and directed by award-winning actress Mahogany Reynolds (aka Mahogany Reynolds-Clarke) the competition challenges each contestant to demonstrate strong skills in all three areas of the performing arts.
"Whenever I coach my students, I always teach them to develop more than just one skill set in the performing arts. Being a triple-threat is something I developed at a very young age. It's a lot of hard work, but it pays off in the end, to have that level of diversity and versatility as an artist", said Reynolds.
Due to the success of the talent contest's debut, Just Be You Performing Arts will now hold an ONLINE TALENT COMPETITION version of the competition. Unlike other online talent contest where contestants can compete in one category for a grand prize; the Just Be You Performing Arts Triple-Threat Talent Competition gives each artist the opportunity to showcase talents in all three areas. This steps-up the game and makes our competition unique. Plus, this competition is exclusively for youth in the performing arts.
Viewers will weigh in on the performances via polling/voting. A panel of established performing artists will serve as the final decision makers. The contest will run twice a year (winter and spring) and culminate with a live performance by the winner during the 2nd Annual Just Be You Performing Arts Youth Film & Theater Festival, in New Jersey, to be held during the summer of 2019, in central New Jersey.
If you think you have what it takes to be crowned JBY's Triple-Threat then we want to hear from you!
Competition is open to unsigned/independent artist age 5 to 17 year's old in the United States and Internationally. No professional experience necessary. Season 2 registration begins December 3, 2018 until January 31, 2019. The winner will receive a cash prize and a 1 year scholarship to be coached and mentored by Just Be You Performing Arts. Plus, the opportunity to perform live at the Just Be You Festival in 2019 and a professional photo shoot!
"Our organization has a stellar reputation for being what I call 'champions for children'. I created this competition for kids all over the world to give them a positive platform to showcase their talents!" said Reynolds
