If you’re a triple threat performer, you dance, sing and act.
“My favorite part is singing. It's just basically letting people know, this is my voice and this is who I am," said Daniel Robinson.
It’s what the Palace Theatre’s Triple Threat intensive is offering this week to young aspiring performers from the area.
"It really empowers them. They learn to become comfortable speaking in public, and doing improvisation and it's just so freeing for them. They find their own creative voices," said Carol Bryan, director of education at the Palace.
Stamford middle schooler Daniel Robinson says this is his fourth year participating.
"It's really fun and it's a place where you get to express yourself and be whoever you want to be," said Robinson. And it's a first year for Greenwich High School student Willa Doss.
"I've done dancing, I love to dance, and I've also done a little bit of singing and acting, but the fact that it brings all of that together is kind of cool and I really like it," said Doss.
The week-long theatre arts program is led by broadway professionals and teaching artists, working with the group of students between ages 10 and 16.
"They're really terrific and they just know how to nurture these kids but really get them to work hard," said Bryan.
"Everyone is so talented here to begin with and in the beginning it kind of made me feel overwhelmed, because I was like, Oh my gosh, everyone's so good at all this stuff. But they taught me everything they know, or a lot of it, and that's helped me," said Doss.
Performing what they've learned, the students will put on a show for family and friends at the end of the week. The program will return next summer and to find out more about it, visit: http://palacestamford.org/arts-education/upcoming-programs
