BRITT Goodwin has been singing and dancing since she could walk and talk.

Now the 21-year-old Mountain Creek performing arts stunner could be on her way to the big time after scoring a scholarship with the Millennium Dance Complex in North Hollywood.

Hanging on the walls of the studio are pictures of its most famous students including Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Mariah Carey and Lady Gaga.

Now it's Britt's turn to shine. "I am just so excited, I can't wait to bring back all the techniques and different choreography styles to my own students," she said.

The University of the Sunshine Coast graduate is also an accomplished singer, model and actor.

Her scholarship came after she caught the judges' eyes in her lyrical routine at the World Championships of Performing Arts in Los Angeles.

The event is touted as the "Olympics of Performing Arts" and the Sunshine Coast did not disappoint.

The team of six from Goodwin Performing Arts at Maroochydore brought home more than 50 medals in a range of categories including singing, dance, modelling and songwriting.

Britt, Nicola Hewitt, 15, Joanne Albrecht, 16, Jack Summersides, 20, Deb Walker, 52, and Noel Walker, 55, were part of a team of 42 Australians going up against teams from 51 countries.

The event included bootcamp sessions and opportunities to mingle with talent scouts.

Britt will leave for Hollywood in December to begin classes at Millennium Dance Complex.
