GMA Artist Center presents its second batch of graduates in its talent development program




Another milestone is about to be made as the much-awaited and upcoming stars of this generation are gathered in one meaningful celebration for the second League of Artists graduation day. 50 Kapuso talents will be given distinction after an intensive talent development program designed to further enrich their skills in the multi-faceted field of performing arts.

With its constant quest for excellence, the renowned GMA Artist Center (GMAAC) talents underwent a grueling three-month workshop, which included various sessions on acting, singing, dancing, and other in-demand skills fashioned to the current industry needs and standards.

Spearheaded by David Fabros, Head of Talent Development in GMAAC, he describes this endeavor as the perfect opportunity for Kapuso stars to gain critical knowledge and harness the expertise of the country’s most prolific showbiz authorities.

In the duration of the program, artists have been mentored by award-winning directors such as Maryo J. Delos Reyes. Voice classes were facilitated by University of the Philippines professor Kitchie Molina, while dance and move exercises, on the other hand, were handled by professional choreographers Danny Vinculado and Sandy Hontiveros.

Moreover, the Kapuso stars were also empowered to enhance their communication skills through a hosting workshop under the tutelage of three-time Aliw Awardee for Stage Direction Freddie Santos as well as the help of speech coaches from Ahead Pro and American Institute of English Proficiency.

And to complete the course’s holistic approach to learning, sessions on public relations and professionalism were also handled by no less than German Moreno, GMAAC consultant and revered star maker.
