As usual, we kicked off the workshop with an empowering Masai Warrior chant - a TADW tradition.
During the first two weeks, the students in the performance track have been learning the basics in their dance, acting, and voice classes:
In their electives, the performance track students have been creating drafts of ten-minute plays, selecting musical theatre pieces to perform, or honing their improvisational acting skills.
The tech/design students have joined the TADW staff on set construction, and are taking classes to help them build their technical and design skills.
Both productions continue to be developed, from the construction of sets, props, and costumes, to the casting of various parts and the staging of scenes.
