JBNBlog is not certain . . . but it looks as if Parkhill’s Andrea Wegg has helped lift another contender to the Western Fair’s “youth talent search” crown.

On Sunday, Samantha Davey, who has studied at Andrea’s Dance Studio in Parkhill, was judged the winner of the 2o12 Rise 2 Fame youth talent search at the fair.

The media release follows. The event’s 2010 winner, Cassandra Hodgins of London, is a contender for role of Dorothy in CBC-TV’s Over the Rainbow show.

Back in 20o4, four young dancers from Wegg’s studio  teamed as an acrobatic ensemble and won the Western Fair competition as the Cirque du Soleil influenced Insect and then went on to win the national title.

Details on Samantha Davey will be gratefully received etc.

Here is the media release from the Western Fair’s Heather Blackwell
