The students of our Talent Discovery Program Class 1 of 2013 had their culminating event last May 18, 2013. Paintings, drawings and usable art works were put up on display while the students of our voice and dance classes showcased the skills they learned over the 12 sessions of the program.
We opened the event with the ‘Modern Jazz Dance’ students of Modelyn Lim. The students wearing all white danced so gracefully to an interpretation of the song “We are the light of the World” by Kari Jobe. It moved me and many others watching to tears just seeing the children dance and sing a song so meaningful and truly at the heart behind every thing that Right Start is — to bring light into the lives of every child.
The voice students sang their mastered pieces that were coached by teacher Joy Cabrera and the ‘Hip-hop’ dance students of choreographer Melvin Ang strut all the techniques they’d learned as they do with a fantastic showdown.
One of our students by the name of Mackie captured all of us with his passionate dance moves. He showed so much potential that Melvin Ang made him a scholar in his professional Dance studio in Quezon City with his team “The Vibe”. This professional dance crew has won awards internationally in different dance festivals around the globe.
We were so inspired by Macky and the opportunities he has ahead. This is actually one of the things that the Right Start Talent Discovery Program is about. We want to give a right start to underprivileged children—a right start in singing, dancing, painting, drawing, and playing musical instruments. Through this, the children are given the opportunity to unleash their God-given gifts and able dream bigger for their future.
Here’s a recap of what the class has gone through the whole 12 sessions.
Thank you to all the teachers and the dedicated staff and volunteers who made this possible!! Saludo ako sa inyo! Salamat!
