First of all, it was the best experience ever !!
I’ve been dreaming about the AMTA for years, as you know, and to have the chance to learn from amazing teachers was such a chance. It was so inspiring, to dance, sing, and act with students from different places around the world, and teachers I would’ve never imagine I could learn from ! Also, the fact that it was a camp made it even more mesmerising... we had so much fun, shared joy and passion, but also stories, from each and everyone’s experience, and I think that’s what’s made it so precious to me. Michael and Alfie talked to us before they left, about how it’s never too late, they really believed in us and it was such a beautiful moment, I truly keep it in I truly keep it in my heart. The whole team was impressing ... Kenneth, Mark, Christie, Michael and Alfie, but also John and Kelly made this whole camp work, because of how they cared about all of us.
I wish Michael and Alfie would’ve stayed for the second week, it was so hard to say goodbye !!Also the place was perfect for the camp, it was so peaceful and special !! The team working there made it so lovely and nice. They were all so kind and took good care of us ! The cadets too are a huge part of the memories lol !
Having the show at the end was perfect, and to perform in the ensemble was such a thrill !!!!!
I started writing, composing and recording my own songs and I think it’s because I’ve learned so much in Nova Scotia. I don’t know how to explain it, but it really felt like a relief, like if I’ve waited my whole life to feel the happiness I felt for two weeks... it just felt like I was doing the right thing for the first time.. In France we don’t have anything close to what musicals are. We don’t have a musical show in school or anything, so it was the first time I got to share my passion with other people, and it was really precious...
I’m still in contact with all of the students, and we have a chat group in which we give each other news and send pictures I really met some beautiful beautiful friends.
