“This workshop was truly an amazing experience for my daughter. It was wonderful to see her blossom and learn so much in one week. I could see her stand taller and exude more and more confidence as the week progressed. She found her passion, and with it a whole new community, with new friends and people to learn from and look up to. In fact, she loved it so much that she signed up for the fall workshops as well! I can’t thank Shauna and the Voice Theatre enough for this (possibly life changing) experience!” — Petra
