EBS Talent Showcase 2021 - Featured Imag

As with so many other activities, we were saddened when we had to cancel 2020's Talent Showcase. But we're excited to be able to bring you the 14th annual EBS Talent Showcase . . . online! We will have a private, virtual platform to not only view but also interact with others! So, please consider singing, dancing, telling a good joke, or whatever your “talent” has to offer. All acts and ages (at EBS) are welcome!

Important Changes for 2021

  • The event will be online/virtual (but it will be Live Streamed :) 

  • Private virtual website to watch and engage (chat w others, etc)

  • All performances will be recorded video.

  • Same format as previous years (Maximum 1min Solo, 2min Groups)

  • IMPORTANT - Performances will be included in the show First Come, First Served. Because we are live streaming the show and need to keep it within a reasonable time, we may have to limit the number of submissions that are accepted for the live streamed portion. If we reach our limit, we will include any "spill over" performances in an on-demand version.

Dates for 2021

  • Mon 2/8 - Registration Open

  • Wed 2/17 - All Submission are Due (5:00pm)*

  • Mon 2/22 - Re-Recordings are Due (If needed)*

  • Fri 2/26 - Showtime @ 6:00pm! (Online/Virtual)

* If your submission does not meet the standards or rules, you will be notified by Thursday 2/18 @ 5:00pm and given a chance to re-record your performance to be turned in by Monday 2/22 to do so.

Instructions **Important Step by Step**

  1. Every performance must be accompanied with a Performer Intake Form (link/button is below) 

  2. The MAXIMUM length of each video performance should not exceed 1 minute for Solo and 2 minutes (for Group of 2 or more) 

  3. If your performance is to a specific audio/music track please submit that audio track file / or the exact title of the track you used (more information below)

  4. Please do not add titles to your video. If you have a specific request for titles please include the request in the Registration Form entry


    • *SUPER IMPORTANT* Film your video in LANDSCAPE mode. This is where you hold your camera or phone SIDEWAYS. See below.

    • If someone is speaking make sure the camera is close to them and they are in a quiet space.

    • When you start filming, wait 5 or so seconds before you start your action / performance - we will cut the extra time off - its ok to leave it.

    • At the end of filming leave the camera recording for at least 5 seconds again. We can always cut out gaps, but we cannot add missing footage. 

    • Try to hold the camera still, or preferably on a tripod.  If someone is filming you have them sit on a chair to make it not shaky. 

  6. Once you have your video and audio clips ready, submit your video (& AUDIO TRACK) from any device - PC, MAC, IPHONE, IPAD, ANDROID and you will see a DROPBOX REQUEST PAGE (link/button is below).
    The only exception is if you are able to transmit the video via a cloud-based service such as dropbox, google drive, iShare, etc. Do NOT email raw attachments, text them, or include them from Facebook, YouTube, etc. 

  7. Use the same name & email as your Performer Intake Form to help identify videos with the registration form entries.

  8. If you have directions or special comments, you must include them in the Registration Entry.

  9. THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT YOUR VIDEO IS Wednesday, February 17th at 5:00pm. (The link closes at this time and will no longer accept entries.)

  10. HAVE FUN!!!



  • All performers must be currently enrolled at EBS.

  • All acts must be family friendly.

  • A child may be in one (1) solo act and one (1) group act, but cannot be in more than one (1) solo act. A child can be in more than one group as long as the group is not made up entirely of other solo performers.

  • Time Limits must be adhered to and will be strictly enforced due to the overall length of the show and the number of acts.

    • Solo acts must be NO longer than ONE (1) minute

    • Group acts must be NO longer than TWO (2) minutes.

  • Even though this year is Virtual . . . We photograph and videotape much, if not all, of the show, including some of the rehearsal. By allowing your child to perform in the show, you grant EBS and the AFP permission to publish photographs and videos taken during these events on the school’s and AFP’s websites and social media pages, in the school yearbook, etc. We will do our best to accommodate individual requests, but this cannot be guaranteed.


There is much more to come, so stay tuned. If you have any questions, please contact Blake Miller at ebstalentshowcase@gmail.com


Thank you,
