IT was an explosion of colour, glitz and true talent at the Search for a Star grand final, which raised over €1,000 for cancer hospice Cudeca.
The €500 cash prize – donated by the Olive Press and Heritage Resorts – went to Gibraltar’s Danza Academy for Sea of the Undead, a spectacular pirate-themed routine taking in a series of duets and lifts.
“We were so happy to win,” said academy co-director Zuleika Green, whose six dancers aged between 15 and 25 did her proud.
“It was wonderful,” added organiser Jayne Melville of Marbella Stage School.
“It’s the first time we have had a talent show as part of Marbella Hot Talent and we were a bit in the dark about how it would go.
“But thanks to the support of the Olive Press, which really raised the profile of the event, we had an amazing response and in the end there were 41 applicants.”
