DETERMINED to succeed in anything she does, Savanah de Beer, placed first in the recent finals of the KuDTa Pop Stars singing competition.

The 15-year-old Grade 9 pupil at Curro High School in Hillcrest is passionate about singing and all things cultural.

In March she heard about a singing competition and decided to enter.

On Saturday 27 August, after months of preliminary rounds, she received podium position.

Her prize includes R10 000 as well as the opportunity to record in a professional music studio.

She also placed second in the recent Lil Diva­’s Singing competition at the Durban Diva Day, and has been entertaining diners at Butler’s Restaurant in Hillcrest.

At the age of 15, this little singing sensation has already decided that a career in singing is at the top of her to-do list. On top of her weekly singing lessons she also goes for art, piano and song-writing lessons and attends dance classes at KZN Dance Centre in Hillcrest.

She has been chosen by Kim and Bonnie Hayman from KZN Dance Centre­ as part of the New York Dance Experience Tour for 2016.

She will be heading for New York City on 28 November, where she will be attending dance classes at the Broadway Dance Centre.

She will also be attending casting workshops and will have private vocal training as well as taking in some Broadway musicals.

She will be part of a team of 22 people, two teachers, two chaperones and 18 dancers.

For more information on Savanah­’s achievements or to find out more about the KZN Dance Centre’s New York Dance Experience Tour contact, Bonnie on 082 782 9717 or 031 765 2488.
