Useful Summer Program that can help Develop Your Talent in the Performing Arts

Many young aspiring Pinoy artists are very eager to learn and be trained in the performing arts. One group in the middle of the suburban area of New Manila, Quezon City is doing their part to help these talented people make their dreams come true.

The Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) has been conducting annual summer workshops during the months of April and May since its inauguration six years ago. PETA's theater program will benefit young hopefuls in the field of performing arts.

These theater arts classes are a mix of acting classes with voice and speech, movement, dance, writing, and improvisation modules. The workshop encourages participants to use their imagination, explore the world of live performance and expand their creative potential.

In PETA, workshop techniques are taught from a student-centered point of view. Without competition or pressure, the emphasis is on the process of the work and the importance of the collaboration.

The workshop programs are tailored to every age group. The Children’s Theater courses (Children’s Theater 1 & 2) expose children from 6-12 to short-story writing, poetry, movement and dance, visual arts, music and drama improvisation.

The courses for teens (Teen Theater & Teen Theater Production) are more challenging and exciting, to cover the more enthusiastic temperament of those in this age. Teens not only learn a good mix of creative writing, creative body movements and dance, visual arts, creative drama, creative sounds and music, new media and improvisational theater during the workshops but are also given a greater sense of self-confidence and accomplishment as they mount an original recital piece to express their personal and social concerns.

Through the Theater Arts course, young adults 17 and above are given the chance to learn the basics in theater history, theater appreciation, aesthetics and criticism and improvisational theater production.

Advanced courses for young adults 17 and above are also being offered such as the Basic Acting, which involves dialogues with respected theater artists and acting exercises the will enhance one’s natural skills. Aside from this, Creative Musical Theater offers lessons on composition, voice, performance and a variety of music explorations while Creative Dance Theater delves deeper into body movements as one’s medium of artistic expressions and takes a closer looks to using the best way possible in order to tell a story.
