Coming up on the 26th of July to the 10th of August is a unique and exciting workshop which will cater to those wanting to learn both Kpop dances or those who want to perfect their vocal techniques and pronunciations when busting out Kpop tunes! This workshop, called “K-Star Entertainment Workshop”, aims to help those wanting to learn more about singing and dancing through providing a range of lessons from professionals.
“K-Star Entertainment is a two-week Kpop workshop. Throughout this workshop there will be different sessions, which are tailored to the three major record labels in Korea, YG, SM and JYP. There will be vocal and dance sessions. The vocal sessions will be led by a professional vocal trainer from Korea. They will help you with the pronunciation of the language in your favourite kpop songs as well as giving you vocal advise. The dance sessions will be led by a professional choreographer who will teach some of the famous kpop dances. People of all abilities can enter these workshops.” Quote from the website
K-Star Workshop is sponsored by the Korea Tourism Organisation, and is linked with Visit Korea Year, Buzz Korea and Go Korea. As this workshop has such big sponsorship, there is an amazing opportunity for a free trip to Korea for the winners of a dancing and vocal competition at the end of the two weeks!
“At the end of this workshop we have 2 very exciting competitions – One dance competition and one vocal competition. The prize up for grabs is a three-night stay in Korea, which includes a return ticket and accommodation. Depending on when the winner decides to go to Korea there could be the opportunity for them to visit Music Bank and Music Core! Every kpop fan’s dream!” Quote from the website
Free flights? Free accommodation? Possibly going to MuBank and MuCore? Yes please! This trip would be a once in a lifetime opportunity and we’re sure this competition will be a great way to round off the workshop and show off your newly tuned skills.
The timetable for the two week workshop has already been planned out and sounds amazing!
