Performing Arts Groups Stack Up on Skills at CAO Seminar

Date Posted: Mar 2, 2011 at 05:53:23 AM


The members of Adamson University’s performing arts groups got a skills boost as the Cultural Affairs Office (CAO) delivered a seminar to improve other aspects of the members as performers.

 

A seminar-workshop on personality development was held for the members of the AdU Chorale, AdU Band, AdU Dance Troupe, and usherettes working for CAO events. The seminar-workshop was conducted by Ms. Pamela Mantuhac, director of the Office for Vincentian Identity and Mission, and Prof. Arlene Paredes, chairperson of the Foreign Languages Department.

 

Ms Mantuhac conducted the lessons for the morning session, lecturing on Poise and Personality and Stage Decorum. From sitting up straight to improving simple gestures, the participants received pointers in refining their ways particularly during their events. Prof Paredes continued the workshop in the afternoon, this time lecturing on the ABCs of Public Speaking, the international phonetic alphabet, and production of vowel and consonant sounds. These lessons stress the importance of diction and pronunciation in the groups’ performances, particularly for the singers.

 

The seminar-workshop is among the many activities that CAO has to further develop its performers’ talents. The CAO is under the direction of Prof. Nenita Dimapilis. Yael Esperat
