Youngsters in Louth will be able to take part in the annual ‘Young Americans’ project next year, after the running of it was rescued by Louth Living Well Project.

Next year’s event, planning for February 17-19, will take place at Cordeaux Academy in Louth for those aged eight to 18.

The Young Americans are a group of 50 students aged 18 to 25, who bring the most amazing vitality and talent to share with young people all over the world.

They have won an Academy award and have been guests on America’s top rated entertainment programmes numerous times.

Over the three days they will be working with 200 students from the Louth area, running voice, dance and drama workshops culminating in a show of outstanding quality to be held at Skegness Embassy Centre, in which all participants will perform, allowing them, and you, to see just what they are capable of.

“Those of you who have worked with them or seen them before will know of their sheer enthusiasm and energy and the incredible effect they have on all students involved,” said Rachel Jones, of the Living Well Project.

“It is a real benefit to all students, after just a few hours, everyone realises they have talent in them.

“It really does help students gain self-worth and self-esteem.”

The cost for 2014 is £60 per student, which includes the two days of workshops, the final day spent rehearsing and performing the show, a Young Americans t-shirt, a bus from Cordeaux Academy to Skegness Embassy Centre on the Wednesday and a hot meal and drink at the Embassy before the show on Wednesday.
