Win a place at a Musical Theatre Holiday Club in Linden or Stoneridge, worth R1250

Thursday, 23rd May - Sunday, 23rd June 2024

Sing, dance and act! Kids will have the time of their lives while learning more about performing arts and gaining skills for life.

Stand a chance to win a place at one of the Musical Theatre Holiday Clubs being presented by JATA from both the Linden, Randburg and Stoneridge, East Rand campuses in the upcoming holiday, 1-5 July 2024. Winner must be 6-14 years.

The clubs are aimed at all school-going children, divided into Minis and Juniors. They focus on co-ordination, musicality, expression, voice projection, improvisation and performance. Look forward to doing dance routines, learning songs and creating scenes. No previous experience in the various disciplines is necessary- facilitators work within the children’s individual and unique abilities.

Families will enjoy a showcase performance at the end of the week, especially for those who attended the full week. While these workshops encourage youngsters to become triple-threat performers by combining acting, dancing and singing skills, natural by-products of theatrical training include enhanced self-esteem and confidence, improved social skills as well as strengthened problem-solving and generative thinking abilities. But, most importantly, it's loads of FUN!

Have fun!
