Enrolling in Asian Academy of Television Arts (AATA) is one of the best experience I have had this year 2014, taking up the course of Performing Arts (acting, voice and dance). In the first place, I should really have been in the Creative Scriptwriting course, which my parents would want me to enroll in since writing has been my forte, but my passion lies more in Performing Arts as I would want to try out a different course other than just writing.
Asian Academy of Television Arts is a school that offers training courses for individuals who aspire to be a production professional or a performing artist. For those who dream of becoming a TV production manager or scriptwriter, there are Creative Television Production wherein students learn about how it is to manage a TV production as well as be prepared to work in some of its aspects while in Creative Scriptwriting for Television, students get to learn about the different formats of scriptwriting and to develop their craft or skills in this course.
As for those aspiring actors/actress, singers, and dancers, Performing Arts would be a good choice to take as it allows you to explore your hidden talent and discover the “performer” in you. It’s time to get out of that shell or what we call “comfort zone” and bring out the best in you.
Other than these mentioned courses, special module classes are also being offered such as Modelling and Personality Development which helps students learn the basics of modelling and even develop their personality , Eric Morris Acting System, and Keyboard and Guitar lessons. There’s also Geleen Eugenio’s Dance Workshop which involves Modern dance (open for kids and adults), Hip Hop (kids, beginners, advance), Zumba, K-Pop, Belly Dancing and Latin Dance.
Of course it doesn’t stop there. There are also photo shoots, exposure trips (e.g. Sunday All Stars, Eat Bulaga, Talentadong Pinoy, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, etc.) and recital. I could say that enrolling in Asian Academy of Television Arts was really worth it. Not only does it help you in learning many things about working in the field of television or performing, but also, it helps you learn to socialize as well with other people.
