Expert Mentors Help Kids Shine in Promil Four i-Shine Talent Camp 7
All kids are born with a gift. While it is often up to parents to discover their child's unique gift or talent, making sure this gift is nurtured and honed requires the guidance of an experienced mentor. Mentors play a vital role in developing a kid’s talent – they have the ability to bring a kid out of her shell, expose her to new experiences and polish her talent until she is ready to shine.
This is the reason why, for this year's Promil Four i-Shine Talent Camp, six of the country's best and most recognized mentors have been commissioned to guide and nurture kids’ gifts through meaningful and memorable talent camps across Metro Manila, Cebu, Davao, and Batangas.
This year, Promil Four i-Shine Talent Camp 7 is presenting Teachers Robert Alejandro and Kara Escay for the Art Camp, Maestro Ryan Cayabyab for the Music Camp, Teacher Georcelle Dapat-Sy for the Dance Camp, Audie Gemora for the Theatre Camp, and Lisa Macuja-Elizalde for the Ballet Camp.
An artist who knew that she was born to dance is Georcelle Dapat-Sy, the brains behind the country’s premier dance company G-Force. She has mentored many young dancers, as well as countless artists. Teacher Georcelle, who believes that anyone can learn to dance, continues to share her knowledge and skills through mentoring kids in the i-Shine Talent Camp.
In the music industry, there’s no one like Ryan Cayabyab. Warmly known as Mr. C, Cayabyab has proven to be a true musical genius as he received the highest national honor for Filipino artists, the National Artist Award for Music. His gift and passion for music earned him several accolades as a composer, musical director, conductor, and accompanist.
Kids are in for a treat as visual artists Robert Alejandro and Kara Escay believe that those who love creating something out of nothing are truly gifted children because they learn how to see the world with wonder and imagination. Born into a family of artists, Alejandro is an accomplished journalist, TV show host, and designer for Papemelroti, a specialty shop that carries a wide array of gifts and decorative accessories owned by his family. He also enjoyed brief stints as a store and mall designer, book illustrator and package designer for various companies in the Philippines.
Meanwhile, Escay is an Art Therapist who received her Fine Arts degree from the University of the Philippines. She is also the Co Founder & Head Teaching Artist at Masterpiece Movement, a creative, wholehearted and transformative multi-arts movement which goals to spark hearts, shift views and stretch ways of being through creativity and the multi-arts.
This season, i-Shine makes things more exciting for kids as it introduces two new camps: Theater and Ballet. With the newest additions, children can explore and discover their talents in the fields of acting and classical ballet!
To help bring out your kid’s talent in acting is veteran theater actor Audie Gemora. With a three-decade old career that has seen him playing all kinds of roles, Gemora has been lauded as the “King of Philippine Musical Theatre” and is known for his work on Bliss (2017), Batch '81 (1982), and Paglipad Ng Anghel (2011).
When it comes to classic ballet, Lisa Macuja-Elizalde is surely the person you’d want your kids to learn from. The prima ballerina started taking lessons at 8 years old and the first foreigner to join Russia’s Kirov Ballet and was the first artist-in-residence of the Cultural Center of the Philippines. In 1995, Macuja established her very own ballet company, Ballet Manila.
May it be singing, dancing, acting, or painting, your kids’ talent will surely shine and stand out with the help of world-class mentors from Promil Four!
