A three-day performing arts workshop at Nordhoff High School (NHS) attracted approximately 125 young singers and dancers from the Ojai Valley.
The Young Americans' Signature Workshop and Performance April 13 through April 15 was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Ojai.
Students in grades three through 12 were invited, including private- and home-school students.
“It was a nice turnout from all around,” said Bryant Huber, youth services director for the Rotary Club. “A perfect division of elementary, middle and high school students.”
For two days, the participants received coaching and instruction from 45 college-age performers who make up the Young Americans international cast.
The final day featured a two-act performance — the first act by the Young Americans, the second by the cast and their students.
