What a trip! 16 students were fortunate enough to spend a week in LA on a USA Cultural Tour.
Our travelling students participated in a two hour performing arts workshop at Disneyland with a professional actor to fine tune their performance skills, create characters and project professionalism on stage. A whole day of learning and participating in the interactive activities that the theme park had to offer.
They also spent a morning at the Griffith Observatory, a Los Angeles landmark operated by the city's Department of Recreation and Parks. They saw numerous rotating space and science exhibits including a massive walk-through display which allows people to see the relationship between the sun, moon and the stars.
At Universal Studio Hollywood, the group was treated to a VIP Tour, which made them feel like true Hollywood celebrities. They had behind the scenes access to locations off-limits to the general public. An unforgettable experience. They learnt about film production and sound recording. They also accessed a special sound studio where Judy Garland herself recorded "Somewhere over the rainbow" for the masterpiece that is the Wizard of OZ. They also got to see the painted sets for the remake of the Wizard of OZ waiting to go into production later this year.
It is safe to say this trip really inspired our students, and gave them an insight to the many options of working in the Performing Arts.
