Performance workshop

EIGHT Darkan children attended a performance workshop on the first Friday of the holidays with Petrina Bishop the artistic director of AKANNA Entertainment based in Mandurah.

The children between the ages of eight and 15 learnt how to present themselves in front of an audience and really get the most from a song.

They all enjoyed the different experience and Ms Bishop was very impressed with the vocal talents of one student in particular, Alice Neil-Smith who studies singing and guitar in Perth.
