Any plans this summer? Trumpets has an answer…
By Alwin M. Ignacio
The heat is definitely on. And yes, summer is here! But the big question now is how do you want your kids, twinks and teens spend the two months of no classes and home works?
Some will definitely troop out of town. Preferably cooler, with a more laid back vibe that is conducive for long walks and longer siestas.
Others, will definitely hit the beaches and resorts, as theiy don their bikinis and board shorts, ride the banana boats and jet skiis, swim with their snorkels and say hello to Nemo and his kind and enjoy the waves and blue seas.
Many will definitely pig out in all the summer fiestas as we Pinoys bring the wow this hotter than hot months celebrating and honoring our patron saints the grandest and colorful way.
Speaking of grand, nothing can be more grander that the summer spectacles such as the Santa Cruzan and Flores de Mayo as we see young gentlemen and misses, even members of the pink community, put on their barong Tagalog, modern ternos and Maria Clara pieces.
Majority of the boys, of course will experience their rites of passage to manhood – circumcission. In this Catholic country of ours, “tuli” is the annual tradition for most young boys who are in their “pagbibinata” stage, they are willing to experience the “pain” and “pride” of being a “man.” And as their hormones rage, we all know that all the physical changes occur in this delightful age of puberty.
Lest we forget, worskhops are also en vogue during the dry spell season. From dance, voice, visual arts and theater, the creative and yes, even the painfully shy ones can go out of their shells and gain the confidence and friends in these workshops that are guaranteed to bring out the “star” in them.
Now on it’s 23rd year, Trumpets Playshop, the Philippines’ go-to destination for workshops is here yet again with an unforgettable summer playtime. For 2016, enrollment is now open for kids, teens and adults who want to take their acting, singing, dancing, modeling, and hosting talents seriously while having the time of their lives.
There are four workshop categories you can choose from. First would be Playshop Performance. Kids ages 4 to 12 will get to bring out their inner Tony-Award-Winners with Playshop’s trademark Children’s Theater (CT) and Children’s Musical Theater (CMT) classes, where they will learn the fundamentals of musical theater through song, dance, improvisation and creative storytelling.
Teenagers who want to take their performing techniques to another level whether through acting, singing or dancing (with new and old friends) will definitely have the best summer of their young lives in Playshop’s Musical Theater.
If you’re the type to express yourself through dance, we’re pretty sure you’ll be more than ecstatic once you join our Playshop Crew – the dance arm of Playshop. Toddlers, kids and teens will get to learn from the best of the best: the Dance Royalties, world champions A-Team and new teachers from the most prestigious university of the country.
If becoming the country’s best TV host or VJ, or maybe even the Philippines Next Top Model is your calling, then Trumpets Playshop has also got you covered with Playshop Power. Join our special classes on Public Speaking and hosting.
Not only that, you can also be more than just another pretty face. Learn everything that makes a remarkable model such as personality, grooming, character, confidence and poise from beauty queen and runway goddess, Ms. Patty Betita.
In a country like ours where singing is just a normal past time, singing like a pro and belt it out with the greats, is most possible in Star Power – our voice workshop is for you.
In their official press release, Trumpets Playshop said, “We always like taking things to another level. That is why we also have Playshop Power, where we hold focused master classes and seminars led by the best performing artists in the country. With that said, get yourselves ready for April 23 as Juan Miguel Severo – the country’s most famous spoken word poet, also known for his heartstring tugging pieces on ABS-CNS’s On The Wings Of Love – puts on the teaching hat in “Paano ba Humugot.” This will be a spoken word workshop for teens and adults, which will be held in Fully Booked BGC.”
