Disney And Family Channel Stars Hosts Triple Threat Course At HSC!
July 17, 2014
Disney and Family Channel star Ashley Leggat has returned home to Hamilton to host a Triple Threat Workshop until July 25, 2014 as part of Hillfield Strathallan College's Summer Camp programming. Students, aged 7-12, will be introduced to the three major components of the entertainment industry: acting, dancing, and singing.
"I was born and raised in Hamilton, and I have always dreamed of coming back to my hometown to nourish the young artists in our city," Leggat said. "I believe whole-heartedly that the best way to learn is through experience, and Hillfield Strathallan College shares this belief."
Leggat is a two-time Gemini nominated actress who has starred as 'Casey' in the Disney and Family Channel's hit comedy series Life with Derek and movie Vacation with Derek. She appeared as 'Marcia' in the Disney feature film Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen with Lindsay Lohan and guest-starred in Murdoch Mysteries and Criminal Minds. More recently, Leggat starred as 'Baby' in the critically acclaimed production of Dirty Dancing at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto and just wrapped filming on her third Hallmark movie The Good Witch's Wonder.
The 'Triple Threat' Workshop will include special guest speakers from the entertainment industry, learning dance combinations, song study from today's greatest hits, and scene study.
Workshop students will also create a short performance and present it on stage at HSC's Virtue-Fitzgerald Centre for the Arts on Friday, July 25 at 3:15 p.m. The community is welcome and admission is free.
