Speaking before the prize-giving, organising chairperson Wong Hie Ping said many new talents had been noted.

We are glad and proud to see many of our previous participants performing regularly in and outside the country.

Some have taken part in other competitions and achieved excellent results.

Over three years we have seen all of our participants possessed with great potential.

However it is a pity that quite a number of them were not properly trained or guided to bring out the best in them, she said.

She added the organiser encouraged them to look for appropriate training (centres) to uncover more inherent talents.

She also urged schools, non-governmental organisations, churches, dance centres and music schools to send participants to next years BTA.

The BTA 2013 was organised by Sibu Municipal Council and sponsored by Farley Supermarket.

Present at the function were council chairman Datuk Tiong Thai King, his deputy Daniel Ngieng, secretary Hii Chang Kee and Farley Supermarket managing director Lau Siew Whye.
