"My daughter has enrolled thrice on the program and loves it! She is always looking forward to her class. It has also greatly improved the way she sings and puts more life into the song. The class is very enriching and engaging. It's a big deal during these extraordinary times where kids have very limited chance to socialize and interact w other kids. My daughter had an amazing experience w you!"  - Mommy Gracie

""I chose to join these classes so I can improve my singing and voice acting skills and to also meet new people. It was a very fun experience and it made my summer so much better." - Iñigo Carlos, "My experience with the BGC Online Theater Workshop" via Inquirer.net

"Since this pandemic, I've never seen our little girl so enthusiastic and excited for her online classes. Although we always knew that she loved to sing, it was a pleasant surprise to see her bloom not only as a singer but a performer. The way that Teacher Rony conducted the classes was fun and encouraging. He helped develop her confidence and showmanship. I think the common experience with the other classmates allowed her to make friends even if the classes were online. Looking forward to more workshops with Teacher Rony!"   - Mommy Dette
