Do you have a talent? Are you sick of singing Chinese songs to your showerhead, wishing for the opportunity to share your talent? Have you waken up one too many times with an irresistible urge to share your amazing dancing abilities or your ? Now’s your chance to shine! We are looking for individuals or groups that have a talent they want to share! We prefer and highly encourage acts that incorporate some aspect of Chinese Culture (Chinese songs, dance, martial arts, yo-yo; both traditional and modern), but we accept to a certain number of other acts (magic tricks, English songs, hip-hop dancing, juggling, stand-up comedy, etc.).

The format of CASA’s Got Talent is a talent show with big cash prizes for the best acts! There will be three judges that will provide commentary during the show. However, the audience’s votes are the only ones that matter and will decide the winners of the show and who will win the prizes! So bring your friends! There is no disadvantage if your act is not connected to Chinese Culture; you just need to be able to win the hearts of the audience!

The Talent Show will be held on Friday April 18th, 2014 in SSS 114 at 7pm! FOOD will be served while votes are tallied! If you are interested in performing in this talent show please fill out the form below and practice, practice, practice for the show! One to two dress rehearsals will be held before the actual competition! Good luck and we can’t wait to see your act!
