Bravo! 4 young actors performed their best during the final audition in the past 2 days, the actors also revealed their feelings of the Bravo journey. The vigorous training has not only elevated their standard & knowledge on acting, they have learned to appreciate team spirit through training in this difficult time and also come to a realisation of their self-value and future goals. The adjudicators will select participants for further training based on their artistic achievements and attitudes towards learning.
Bravo! 4’s passionate young actors were individually coached online by tutors of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) at the third acting workshop right before the final audition for further overseas training at LAMDA, London or Cloud Gate Dance School, Taipei.
