Premiere was established in 2009 and currently produces the leading global industry program for young performers. This program is designed to showcase actors, dancers, singers and models between the ages of 5-20 before industry professionals who specialize in launching young performers. Premiere has hosted these functions every summer and winter over a dozen times since 2010, which are held at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort.
These programs are organized to showcase skilled participants and give them the opportunity to connect with respected industry professionals from around the globe. We have helped thousands of children from all over the world get their start in the entertainment industry with representation and appearances on networks that include ABC Family, CBS, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel and Disney XD. Our program has also given many young performers the chance to work with their favorite celebrities from Nickelodeon and the Disney Channel.
At Premiere, each performer is given the opportunity to showcase their skills before top industry professionals and learn about the inner workings of the entertainment industry. Since the program began, more than 60 percent of the performers are called back to discuss representation and job opportunities. All participants gain valuable performance experiences during their time at the program such as confidence, interviewing, and public speaking skills.
