On Thursday, Jan. 25, the first Royal Palm Beach Talent Showcase was held in the Royal Palm Beach High School auditorium.
The showcase was the brainchild of RPBHS Dance Director Michele Blecher.
Her vision for the showcase was to have all students — elementary, middle and high school — in the feeder loop to RPBHS to perform in a non-competitive setting highlighting their talents as vocalists, musicians, dancers and thespians, regardless of their ranking or abilities.
The showcase was a huge success. At the end of the evening, each performer received a medal and a certificate. All are looking forward to next year’s Royal Palm Beach Talent Showcase.
A few days later, the Wildcat Dancers Dance Team from RPBHS, under Blecher’s artistic direction performed at the South Florida Fair on Saturday, Jan. 27.
The dancers from RPBHS performed seven dance routines in the areas of jazz, contemporary and musical theater.
Blecher and the dancers were thrilled that as they performed, fair-goers stopped and took a seat to watch their mini show.
