Gemma Maddock is offering an exciting workshop initiative aimed at the youth of the Pilbara.
The workshops provide members of the community an opportunity to be involved in extending their knowledge of performing arts.
After her sell out success in Hedland last October Gemma is visiting the JD Hardie Centre, Hedland for two, two-day workshops.
Gemma will also visit Karratha students at Karratha Senior High School gymnasium.
The workshop incorporates singing, acting and dancing with the celebration of a performance showcase at the conclusion of the workshop.
Gemma Maddock is a former Wheatbelt WA resident and boarder at St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls.
Gemma recognised a lack of opportunities for the youth of rural WA to become involved and exposed to the arts sector, in particular performing arts, over the holiday periods.
Gemma now resides in Melbourne and has studied at WAAPA, completed a Bachelor of Arts (Music Theatre) at The University of Ballarat, Associate College of London Trinity Speech and Drama Teaching diploma and has had extensive experience teaching dance and drama around Australia and is keen to bring workshops to the kids of WA.
Gemma aims to provide youth with the opportunity to develop social skills, build confidence and extend their knowledge for future ambitions.
The workshops will be available for anyone aged between 8 and 13-years-old.
It will run in Hedland on April 23 and 24 and April 25 and 26.
The workshop will be in Karratha on April 27 and 28.
