Young, creative Adelaide students caught up with NIDA Director/CEO Kate Cherry last week, as the budding performers were offered the chance to grow as artists through NIDA Open’s new Scholarship Program.
Casey Brown of Willunga High, Caitlin Selge of Mitcham Girls, Susannah Inverarity of Ocean View College, Taperoo, and Joshua Naspinski of North Adelaide Senior College won the chance to learn drama, screen and auditions skills and discover new ways to ignite their passion for performance.
Kellie Mackereth, whose career includes directing productions for Sydney-based theatre companies Belvoir and Griffin Independent, returns to her home city of Adelaide to work with the students at Christian Brothers College.
Australia’s leading institution for dramatic arts education and training, the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA), encourages the future generation of young performing artists to enhance their journey in the arts by learning from leading professional artists in their field.
NIDA Open offers a chance for young people and adults to develop their skills and passion for a broad range of performing arts courses. Classes are open for eight weeks starting 14 October in the heart of Adelaide at the Restless Dance Theatre in Gilles Street. The popular Summer Holiday course program starts on 15 January at Scotch College.
‘NIDA is giving back to the arts and inspiring creative journeys with our scholarship program,’ said NIDA Director/CEO, Kate Cherry. ‘We want to help young artists develop and send them on their way to reaching their full potential. NIDA Open is the perfect doorway to additional professional development, or simply can be a way to explore an untapped creative side.’
‘NIDA Open is committed to providing strong foundations for the development of young performing artists across Australia, so that they can go on to study with us at a higher education level or find their place in the industry, or even use their skills elsewhere in their day-to-day lives,’ added Cherry
