The intensive workshops focuses on preparing students for the final Storytelling Competition - to be held at Tampines Junior College auditorium on Aug 14th 2015.
Students are guided in internalizing their story as opposed to memorization and not being a slave to the script but to fully own their story.
Students are trained in posture alignment, body stances, breathing exercises, vocal exercises, voice projection, eye contact, gestures, expression and other tricks of the trade.
Students are taken through a series of structured activities to learn and internalize their story.
Kamini advised on the rubrics for the competition judging.
