Performers in the “Future Stars” competition represent schools and performance educators from all over South Florida. Many “Future Stars” alumni have gone on to college-level study at prestigious music and dance programs and professional careers in the performing arts. The Rotary Club of Boca Raton annually awards a need-based performing arts scholarship, and has over the years helped many “Future Stars” participants with scholarship assistance. 

 “Future Stars” began 19 years ago when Rotary member Rick Taylor’s daughter was a budding high school vocalist. Taylor believed that talented young people like his daughter deserved more and better productions to showcase their talents. The mission of Rotary’s “Future Stars Performing Arts Competition” is to give South Florida’s talented high school and middle school performers a professional quality production.    

The judges for show night are esteemed dance and vocal professionals. Past judges have included Cathy McCann, director of “Taylor 2” for Paul Taylor Dance; Philip Pierce, Florida Grand Opera’s director of Artistic Administration, and Billboard Performing Star (and “Future Stars” alumnus) Kendra Erika.
