PUBLISHED: 13:04 07 September 2017
An organisation for aspiring young performers is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
Little Voices is celebrating the its national milestone, and its group in Welwyn Garden City is also helping to mark the occasion.
Little Voices is run out of Applecroft Primary School after having been established there last September.
The group will be celebrating in every lesson the week commencing September 11.
Principal Cherice McKenzie-Cook told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “Little Voices has made a huge difference to the confidence and overall development of lots of children in Welwyn Garden City, both academically and socially.
“I loved to perform and I have gone on to create my career in the performing arts industry.
“Many of the children come each week for their lessons and whilst building their CV from a young age and nurturing their vocal and dramatic talents, they have fun, make lifelong friendships and we nurture their skills for life.
“Drama and singing is a really accessible, fun way of building confidence to speak in public, to become an effective communicator and get a strong sense of self.
“A child can understand and learn how to present themselves, give good eye contact, have good posture and overcome anxiety and nerves in any life situation.”
Little Voices is dedicated to helping children reach their full potential in drama and singing.
Alicia, eight, added: “I’ve been attending Little Voices lessons since September last year and it’s been the most fun activity in my life so far.
“I love having a group of friends outside school and it has really helped my confidence levels grow.
“I have also learnt loads of new cool skills.”
