Many young performers have dreams of becoming international
stars, they dream of Hollywood, fame and success. Very often, and unfortunately
at a prize, many of them fall prey of promises of instant fame etc.! The reality
however, is that only a very small number of these aspiring performers will hit
the international fame jackpot.
The NEA does not promise Hollywood, fame or success. The NEA Young Performer
Awards Competition does not pretend to be the pot of gold at the end of the
rainbow either! What the NEA does offer is a credible, non-profit platform that
provides talented performers with an additional, higher level opportunity to
nurture and develop their skills and talents in a more challenging environment.
The value derived from this experience will enhance their self-esteem beyond
superficial greatness, to a deeper knowledge of themselves, their potential and
their challenges, in order to become successful citizens. This holds true for
many of the 16500+ participants in this competition over the past 14 years.
The integrity and truthfulness of this competition stand beyond any doubt when
one considers the achievements of previous winners and top achievers in this
competition: The well-known faces in the pictures above all have at least one
thing in common:they were ALL top achievers in the NEA Young Performer Awards
Competition since its founding in 2004 - to name but a few: Henno
William, Isabella Jane (Snyman) and Julian Hepburn were all finalists in E-TV’s
SA’s got talent competition. Henno (silver medalists in the NEA Awards 2015) has
recently been signed by New York-based music executive, Kevin Liles who will
launch the young singer-songwriter in the United States and internationally.
Andile Ndlovu and Camille Bracher were top achievers at the 2007 International
Ballet Competition. Ndlovu, also a finalist in KykNet’s "Dance, Dance, Dance",
is currently with the Washington Ballet, one of the USA’s most prestigious dance
companies; Camille Bracher is currently dancing for the Londen Ballet Company; Maudee
Montierre is a well-know soprano and currently a lecturer at the University of
Cape Town; Carmen Pretorius, has performed in Mamma Mia, Cinderella, Jersey Boys
