More than just talent and luck, it takes a hard-nosed attitude to break into show business. In the special, we shine the spotlight on a group of teens trying to make it as dancers, singers, rappers and stand-up comedians to find out what drives their hearts and minds when auditioning and performing. We also meet three talented teens in the world famous Cirque du Soleil and see how they balance the rigors of touring with their personal lives. With lots of advice from talented teens and established professionals this special offers a head start to those interested in a career on stage. [28 minutes]
