ELEMENTS OF FAME: John Robert Powers 2011 Summer Showcase by Mr. Ricardo R. Santos
AIR. WATER. FIRE. EARTH. These are the four naturally occurring elements in the universe that have the inherent power to create and/or destroy. These primordial elements also make up the planet in which we live in, and the physical world that we know of. When harnessed and put under control, these elements help humans to survive and live lives that have the potential for fame, greatness and power.
ELEMENTS OF FAME is this year’s theme for JRP’s summer showcase that was held last Saturday, June 4th, from 6:00PM, at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Ayala Avenue, Makati City.
For about a month of rigorous rehearsals under the creative supervision and instruction of artistic professionals, the participants go through routine practices that hone their talents and skills, at the same time are taught to discover their self-worth, and experience self-appreciation for improved self-confidence.
Since 2005, John Robert Powers, the leading provider of Personality Development programs in the Philippines, and now in many countries in Asia, has staged 13 showcases that featured the skills and talents of its students in stage and video acting, hosting, singing, dancing, fashion photo shoot and runway modeling. Over a thousand young men and women, boys and girls, with ages from 5 to 45, have joined this bi-annual event that serves as a culminating rite of passage after going through a life-transforming John Robert Powers program.
ELEMENTS OF FAME is the first of its kind of showcase that will feature the various talents and skills of JRP’s students woven in one magical, fantasy story. This year’s summer showcase involves the following Segment Directors and Assistant Segment Directors, respectively: Onyl Torres and Vince Revo Dungca for stage acting, Dingdong Eduque and Ingrid Nieto for singing, Lei Ponce and Rayn Ordiales for dancing, Ning Corteza and Raymund Recto for fashion photo shoot and runway modeling, Raymund Recto and Kevin Dugan for video acting, and Mars Nave and Issa Litton-Garrido for hosting.
