Kids will now have a chance to take up performing arts as City of Dreams Manila’s DreamPlay opens its Summer Dream Workshop. The six-day workshop is open to children ages six to 13, and includes singing and dancing lessons.
The singing workshop includes exploring various vocal exercises, the application of proper singing techniques, and concepts on basic stage performance; while the dance workshop involves lectures and exercises on the creative process of dance, choreography, improvisation, as well as different types of routines and techniques in jazz funk, modern dance, and hip hop.
As a culminating activity of the workshop, participants are set to perform live on April 6, at 2 PM at DreamPlay, where they can get the chance to become a DreamPlay Ambassador or get special awards. Apart from the kids’ individual performances, exciting production numbers are also lined up, where they will be joined on stage by DreamWorks’ Trolls characters Poppy and Branch, and The Dreamers, DreamPlay’s talented in-house performers.
Vocal coach Zhan Dela Pena will facilitate as vocal coach together with his team. Dela Pena is a graduate of the University of Santo Tomas’ Conservatory of Music with a 10-year background in teaching voice techniques and performance. DreamPlay’s in-house dance group, The Dreamers, will lead the dance workshop.
