The Auditions and Heats
A panel of expert Judges selects the top acts from the first open stage auditions. From there those acts move to the next stage and perform at the Heats at Breeze on Tour during the summer holidays. Again the acts will be judged and scored on originality, stage presence and technique. Our finalists are announced and they perform in the Finals at a city centre venue later in the year.
Please remember: the aim of Breeze has Talent is to offer young performers the chance to develop skills and confidence by taking part in a friendly competition that we hope is fun but also challenging – it isn’t just about winning!
