POLKA Dot Academy was transformed into the plains of Africa as stars of the future took part in a week-long workshop that culminated in a free presentation to family and friends.

The workshop was based on the hit musical The Lion King and gave children in South Holland a chance to develop skills in acting, singing and dancing.

Participants also played drama games based on the Olympics and were given a face painting masterclass to help them transform into the various animals.

The sessions were lead by Daniel Woodhouse, who has performed in various West End shows and most recently directed Spalding’s latest professional pantomime Aladdin.

Joining him as choreographer was Cameron Hall who attends the Italia Conti drama school in London and Danielle Parkin from Polka Dot Academy’s resident teaching staff.

Academy director Helen Wright said: “The children worked incredibly hard and learnt lots of new skills along the way. We are really proud of their achievements.”

The workshop was the first to be held at the academy’s new premises and sold out so fast that another workshop has already been planned for October half term.
