Every year the International ARTS Talent Showcase (IATS) helps local entertainers in various faculties (singing, dancing, acting and modelling) realise their dreams. It gives youngsters a platform to showcase their talent locally, as well as the opportunity to travel abroad and the chance at international education.

This is not a competition. It’s a platform – its primary focus is on arts education – which allows longevity in the marketplace.

The Applause Rising Talent Showcase (ARTS) is a family-owned and operated organisation, founded by international talent scout Kim Meyers. IATS is the South African leg of the ARTS, held annually in Orlando, Florida. It is run by Elsubie Verlinden, founder of Just You Model and Artist Management.

In her capacity as Regional Director for ARTS in Africa, Verlinden has provided countless young South Africans exposure to top educational outlets in the USA.

Additionally, Just You Model and Artist Management will open their international offices on 1 February 2018 in New York City, once again providing locals the opportunity to secure international contracts.

Growing up, Verlinden was stunned by the lack of international opportunities for people seeking a career in the arts. So, she took matters into her own hands and teamed up with Kim Meyers to bring the showcase to the African continent. Each year the Showcase has grown to offer bigger and better opportunities. Last year afforded participants the opportunity to audition in front of international talent scout Rhavynn Drummer.

Worry not, with the new year, comes new opportunities and your chance is NOW! Verlinden will once again be travelling from city to city throughout South Africa to scout the best talent the country has to offer to attend the International ARTS Talent Showcase.

Auditions are currently underway, and Just You will be visiting your city soon. Check out the dates and times below and remember… international is not impossible!
