Additional

In Washington DC I visited The Kennedy Center, a huge National Memorial, in which one of the busiest Cultural Institutions worldwide is located. I assisted at The Irene Ryan Acting National Acting Scholarship Audition, where national finalists presented their audition program for the national scholarships, performance awards, and fellowships. How exciting and inspiring it was!

And in Los Angelos I made a tour in the FIDM, the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. It is among others committed to partnering with high school educators. Their goal is to provide with tools and experiences that assist in stimulating a rich rehearsal / class environment.

During a trip my admissibility for all kind of sources of inspiration seems to be multiplied by ten. Each yournee brings me fresh and innovating insights and ideas.
