What a fantastic work ethic we saw from the students who joined our 2018 Summer Intensive based on The Greatest Showman.
In just three and a half days they worked with songs and scenes from the popular film musical. During intensive workshop sessions, the group of eight to 18-year-olds developed their skills in singing, acting and dancing. They also learned about video production and had the experience of recording vocal tracks in a recording studio.
Hairspray was our summer intensive workshop this month.
During the week, students developed skills in acting, singing and dancing, learning choreography from our principal, Heather Gallagher.
But the week wasn’t all about singing, dancing and acting. Our students also learned about the social history that inspired the musical Hairspray, including racial segregation and the fight for equal rights. So, the afternoon of day three began with students watching videos about Rosa Parks and racism. They then wrote something from the heart that the videos had inspired.
The week culminated in a performance of ‘work in progress’ for parents and close family. The presentation was filmed by our film tutor Tilley Bancroft.
